    Does anyone make a strap to fit this?

    Just received my Breitling Eric Tabarly. The watch has the large double link for a UTC but the UTC itself is missing. That didn't bother me because I planned on changing the bracelet with a leather strap. Really got it at a "bargain" price and now I know why. This watch seems to have a proprietary bracelet. The case is actually made in a fashion that does not allow for a conventional strap. When I remove the UTC link it does not fit my 7 inch wrist. I'm about a link or too short and can't find them anywhere. The UTC is also hard to find. Any suggestions welcome.

    What method is used to join the links? Are they interference or friction pins or screw pins. There are plenty of custom strap makers that could make something nice, but working out attachment would be the issue?

    Seems to be screw pins

    I have also considered fitting a small, screw down plate behind the UTC with my initial engraved on it. This would only be visible when looking through the UTC Crystal. The screw holes are already in place for that. Sounds ridiculous? Any other ideas are welcome
