    Breil milano mediterraneo strap or alternative strap (tailor made?)

    My wife has a breil milano mediterraneo with a white leather strap. Although the watch is nice the strap is of poor quality and has been replaced three times now, also with a white leather strap from a different model (rose gold watch) but that strap also lasts 6 months.

    She really likes the watch so I'd like a watch strap that lasts longer and stays nice. Are there any alternative straps or custom strap makers who could make a white leather strap in these non-standard sizes?

    It would be doable enough to fit that watch with a new strap, but it looks to be cut/notched in a very specific way, and also looks like it may have a proprietary lug system other than spring or screwbars.

    That said, I know that I wouldn't be able to responsably make a strap to fit that watch without having the watch in hand while I worked, which will add to the expense because you'll be paying to ship it more than once.

    Ditto on what CAD said. We could tell you more probably if you posted some pics of the back side of the case where the strap attaches. Maybe even remove the strap and get us a pic of the end of it.
    You can watch something happen, you can make something happen, or you can stand there wondering what the hell just happened.

    Managed to snap a shot of the backside. Looks like some screws are involved in removing it and haven't tried that yet as it doesn't look like anything I've seen before. Understand I will have to send in either strap or full watch.

    Those screws probably go right through the strap and into the case. You will definitely need to send in the watch to have the end of the strap fit into the recess and the holes located. I've done a similar strap for a couple of Hublot Big Bangs.


    I can do it. PM me if you like.
