Greetings,
Which would be the correct bracelet to fit my Chronomat?
Needless to say, I have purchased a 20mm genuine bracelet, which now does not fit, of course.
Also, where might be the best place to find such a bracelet, at an affordable price?
With thanks.

Here's some end link reference... viewtopic.php?f=29&t=42537

If it's Chronomat from 90ies and early 2000, most probably you need 300A end links.
Ref# would be useful.

My Chronomat is: B13050/B352.
Needless to say, I purchased an used genuine Breitling bracelet and assumed that it would fit, because it was of the correct diameter. I should have known better.
Could this bracelet be made to fit, with the correct end links?
If so, where might I buy those?
Thank you.

Original bracelet would be Pilot bracelet marked CHRONO/DUO or CHRONO/DUOG on the end links.
300A should fit, as well as 301D if you prefer two tone bracelet.
If you bought a Pilot bracelet you can keep it, just find matching end links.
You can try on Chrono 24 or ebay.

This is the bracelet which I mistakenly purchased:-
BREITLING COLT PRO II BRUSHED BRACELET 20mm 812A
Can this be made to fit, eg. with the correct end links?
Thanks again.

I'm sorry, but you have a completely different bracelet Pro2 (for a different line of watches).
You need a Pilot bracelet with end links markings I mentioned above.

No problem.
Check on Chrono 24 with your model no., you'll see how Pilot bracelet looks like.
