    24mm Bandfever bracelet on 23mm Victorinox Auto

    Hi. New to the forum and watch collecting. My wife bought me my dream watch this past Christmas. The Victorinox Infantry Vintage Auto Day/Date. It came with a very nice black leather band but I've always been a bracelet guy. NOBODY makes a decent 23mm oyster style bracelet and I just couldn't justify 200.00 dollars for the bracelet from Victorinox I read up on this forum and saw that many folks had luck with a larger size bracelet and some careful Dremel work . I found a really beefy bracelet from Bandfever that was perfect for my modification. I'm happy to say that I LOVE the results. I just took my time and worked carefully. This bracelet has a butterfly clasp and just looks fantastic. Thanks to the folks on this forum for the idea

    Nice job. I understand your predicament, as I have a Victorinox Airboss Mach 4 with 23mm lugs. I'd love to find the factory bracelet, as it's pretty sweet. So far--no luck, so I keep it on various leather straps.

    Also, welcome to the forum.
