    Milanese mesh strap advice needed

    Hi,
    I would like to change the strap on my Breitling Windrider to a Milanese type bracelet. The ones I have found are polished which I don’t think suit the brushed stainless finish on my watch.

    Does anyone know if an original Breitling brushed stainless Milanese bracelet is available?

    I know one is available as I almost bought it at the boutique in Millenia Mall in Orlando for close to $1800. Did not go thru with the purchase as it would not fit my navitimer. However it might fit the watch pictured above as it doesn't have as much curved lugs as the navitimer (size and style). Best to try it on before you buy.

    If you decide to go with a generic mesh bracelet, get the polished and not brushed (seller in Germany has some nice ones for around $100).

    Just get a staib. The quality difference does not justify the price differential.

    Get a Staib. I've had both, and there is no quality difference.

    Thanks, Is there somewhere in the UK where I can see the Staib straps?

    Stains can be purchased on line. Here is where I bought mine:

    https://www.longislandwatch.com/STAI...nds_s/1953.htm

    many people prefer the extra thick one. I think the thickest one is 4mm and is not sold by Long Island. There are tons of Staib dealers. I think watchbandscenter.com sells them too and they are U.K. Based.
