    Zenith Bracelets

    Is the El Primero 42mm bracelet that same that came with the 42mm captain chrono? Both are 21mm, and I think the cases are the same. What is the best way to go about getting one? Zenith doesn't appear to sell them separately. I have a Captain chrono incoming that was bought used with leather. I wish I could have gotten one for around the same price with a bracelet but after about 8 months looking none popped up.

    Thanks for the help!

    Have you called Zenith customer service? I would think they have them. Expect to pay $$$ though.

    No, not yet. Combing the wires for used ones now. I did find 2 new ones for the El Primero on Chrono24....$1360. Ouch! I guess I will just have to stick with leather if that is how much they run.

    Yeah, the Zenith bracelets are exorbitantly priced. I wanted one for my EP and found a used one from a WUS seller for $500. I did not buy it then but probably should have (the design of the links did not thrill me). You may want to examine aftermarket makers (Strapcode has a few 21mm offerings with straight end links) for ~$100: https://www.strapcode.com/store/21mm...l?filter_id=30
    You could try one of the Strapcode 22mm with curved endlink and see if a little judicious filing would fit into the Zenith case nicely. I actually have a 22mm Angus jubilee for my Seiko MM300, but I have not tried it yet...hmmm.

    It seems like the EP would go well with a 3-link bracelet that has polished sides and a somewhat flatter profile than a Rolex Oyster; the Strapcode Super Oyster 3D for Tudor might be a good fit: WhatAWatches | ????? ???? ?????

    Thanks for the suggestions...filing 0.5 mm on each side of a 22mm bracelet (for a 42 mm watchof course) sounds like a neat experiment. I wish Staib made a 21 mesh. I just bought a 20mm one and dig it.
