Sure no problem. It’s a deployant clasp with tang buckle. Here you go.

Really impressed with this release. I was very tempted by the recent Chronomats, but the bracelet (as beautiful and comfortable as it is) makes it wear just a tad large for my liking on my wrist. That, coupled with lack of on-the-fly micro-adjustment, was just enough to hold me at bay. So when this beauty was released, I was hoping the rubber strap might make it feel a bit more svelte. And I was right. Not only does the watch wrap down around my wrist better than the bracelet, but it lightens the weight by quite a bit. Super comfy. And man, that dial…

LOVE it! Congrats!!!

The live pictures of this model look great! I can't wait to see it when my AD gets one. It's the perfect codger's watch

Such a beautiful watch. The only thing holding me back from the new Chronomat is the red seconds hand. This solves it. Imagine if the case was platinum as well. Oh my goodness.

I agree, Breitling really needs to tone it down. If they are ever to work on their brand and future perception of the brand, they need to start producing models for gentlemen who are not the size of Dwayne Johnson.

From 16cm and up anyone can wear a 42mm watch. Just because someone has this idée fixe that a watch is too big doesn't mean it is for non WIS people (middle letter stands for 'idiot')

Breitling, under G. Kern, has reinvented themselves and are fast becoming a true top brand again. I don't own one yet but I am tempted.

Saw the watch last weekend and was really tempted but imagining 50% depreciation off the bat turned me off. I don't buy watches to make money on them but it's bit tough to swallow for a watch that already seems to be priced high.

Great looking watch. Saw a few of the newer Breitlings yesterday and that bracelet looks outstanding. Breitling has really stepped up its game - I hope the brand bounces back. I agree they tend to lose value - I think that’s because they flood the market with too many models. Breitling needs to pull a play from the Rolex book and make a few models unobtainium.

Breitling makes some of the best large diameter watches. I would have to see it on my wrist to make a call. Interesting bracelet tho.

Whoa. Very nice. I presume you took a bracelet off a SS model?

Love the watch. Tried on a silver dial and its a big 42 but I was getting away with it so I am tempted by them. Not sure I am digging the rubber though so would have to buy the steel bracelet separate.

Beautiful watch and color. B01 leaves nothing on the table. Best chronograph movement made in my opinion. Fantastic watch!
