    I have stated this before but almost every Breitling looks incredible on a crocodile strap. JMHO

    Hi, Ron. I have certainly enjoyed these two deployant straps from Ebay seller vlanazar... https://www.ebay.com/str/designstrap...at=21937496010 Reasonably priced and works well with his (replica) deployant clasp or the original OEM deployant clasp. Not expensive to give 'em a shot, anyway...
    Best,
    Ron

    I am concerned about wearing leather straps when it is hot.

    How much do the meshes weigh compared to the rubber straps?

    They are going to be a bit heavier. The airwolf pictured above originally came with the professional bracelet so there was no discernable weight difference but the watch head itself has a bit more heft than the titanium b55. It fits well though and since the weight is around your wrist you shouldn't have to worry about things shifting around if that is the concern.

    Also there are 2 distinct styles. The airwolf uses a 22x22 and is 4mm thick all the from lug to buckle.




    Then there is the one linked to earlier which is tapered. This below is a 24x22 4mm @ lug to 3mm @ buckle. Mesh is a little more coarse than the one on the airwolf.
