Has anybody got a picture of all the calf leather strap colour options? Primarily I'm interested in the brown options- every time I look in a display window etc I see different brown shades!? From pale (almost yellow) to chestnut dark browns.... Any help is much appreciated, thanks :lingsrock:

I presume you know about the Breitling made to measure on they WS. Colours not really true but may be helpful.

If you do not know... here you go....

Yes. Your observation is correct.
There is no way to consistently manufacture the same shade of leather every single time. (This is the explanation I got from Breitling when I was searching for a specific shade of gold croco leather strap). The variation in shades is more noticeable on croco leather.
Also, you may have been looking at two different color. There is Gold calf and Brown calf. The gold is much lighter.

Indeed. AMJ recently let me choose between two dark brown, code 431X straps, precisely because of the colour variations - one was noticeably warmer and redder than the other.

Thank you for the replies. I suppose the color variation makes sense. I never thought of using the made to measure function on the breitling website- good idea! Thanks guys
