Hi everyone, new on this forum and looking for a bit of help.
I have just purchased a lovely Colt A57035 with red dial, it is currently fitted with an after market bracelet that is a wee too small for me. it also came with a brown leather strap but I don't really think it complement the watch and I am looking to get a new one but having a hard time to locate one. I believe that the size I need is 18mm/16mm and would be happy with either a rubber strap but would more prefer a metal strap. Anyone could point out where I could find some in the UK/London, thanks in advance for your help.

Didn't know that model was available with a red dial. Could you post a picture?

Sorry if the pics are not great. Paid £460, any feedback on the price paid is also welcome...hope I didn't pay too much but I liked the unusual dial in red. :lol:

The bracelet for this is Pro I code 821a, won't be very easy to find now, and not sure whether Breitling still produce an 18/16 strap so you may need to go aftermarket.

Thank you Roffensian, just have to find one now :-) no luck so far on the bay uk or usa so might have to fit an aftermarket for the time being.

You can also use 820A, which is polished on the sides and brushed in the middle.

UPDATE: spoke with BUK at their service department this morning and the lady was nice and helpful but the only option that I had was a replacement (unknown model) as the pro 1 or 2 are discontinued and that would cost around £400 and would have to be ordered from Switzerland.... don't really want to spend this kind of money for a bracelet and rather spend £250 in a overhaul of the watch and maybe start saving for a different model :santa: . So now an aftermarket will have to do until I find a second hand at a good price. Thank you for all the reply, info and idea and if you come across a bracelet send the details my way :lol:

Make sure you check all ebay domains, .com .ie .de .at ETC as searching just one really restricts you.

Good luck in the search!
