    Thank you for the information gentlemen. Expensive custom and NATO straps are a deal breaker for me. Breitling just lost a potential sale.

    The concern for me would be that it might prove difficult, or impossible, to deal with any damage to the polymer. I've become quite good at restoring my SS watches (through MUCH practice) when they have little scuffs, scratches and scrapes. And from the pictures people have posted, I'm not sure I like the appearance. But the material in-and-of itself being a "plastic" wouldn't be a deal-breaker. It's not like stainless steel is some kind of precious commodity.

    Re: New model: Colt Skyracer

    I fell in love with the style and idea of this watch, in large part due to the case material (I really love the Hurricane, but it's more than I can justify today). I called my local AD, they are bringing one in for me to check out next week. The person I talked to said they watch will take regular Breitling straps (such as the 22mm OEM straps I already have), it just didn't look like the regular or un-modded straps would fit based on the photos of the lugs in this thread.

    So I called the boutique in Vegas and talked with the salesperson I've dealt with before, she tells me that it will not take regular straps, and will only accept the rubber one shown in the marketing photos. She did say that a nato style should work no problem, and that they are expecting a range of new straps for it to start trickling in around September. Similar to what someone else said earlier, if this would take regular straps, I would have bought it today. I just do not like the look of the measuring tape one. If this had the canvas strap, or would take the two canvas straps I have already, I'd have ordered it. Such a bummer, I don't enjoy waiting.

    AUD$2,770.00 seems reasonable, but it is a Quartz model.

    Skyracer should use that yellow strap from hurricane. That would be awesome

    Got to say this is one of the least appealing Breitling watches I have seen.... Sure I've seen a Timex that looks very similar !
