Colt 44 - Polished Bracelet Help.

The bracelet for my Colt 44 is 22-20 and comes brushed.

Can you help guide me to a polished option from here:
https://www.authenticwatches.com/bre...In%20Stock&s=1

Problem Iím seeing is thickness of other models which have 22-20 polished bracelets not being compatible with my watch due to thickness.


Thanks!

First off, it appears your bezel and watch case may also be finished in a satin 'brushed" finish and will also need to be polished to match the "polished" bracelet you intent to use. Any local "high end" competent jeweler should be able to polish your case, bezel and bracelet to a close factory appearance. It will be far less expensive and achieve your desired look for your watch. i am assuming around $ 100 vs $ 1,000 or more just for a factory bracelet and clasp. Then you'll want a polished bezel to make the watch "pop".

Having said (all of this), you should do what the rest of us do. Buy another watch! Then another . . . . Or, look into the option of getting your Breitling polished. Go to a "very nice" jewelry store that sells high end watches and have a talk with their watch guy to access his skills and confidence to polish your watch to perfection.

The entire case is actually polished which is what bothers me in regards to the bracelet.

But yes, I'm guessing the bezel would bother me once everything is polished as well.
