    I posted this in the Breitling Forum, but...

    I want a non-stainless alternative bracelet/strap for a Breitling Superocean Pro. I love the Maratac straps for slimmer profile watches, but rubber seems more appropriate for a dive watch. I just can't justify a $300-400 piece of rubber and a clasp direct from Breitling. What will look rugged, professionally considered, and appropriately proportioned for this watch? All ideas welcome.

    If you can do without the deployment clasp, Breitling has actually one of the best deals going on their OEM rubber, as far as the higher-end marques go... Around $110-$150 including tang buckle from your local AD.

    Don't EVER go to ebay or online for replacement straps when it comes to Brietling, Omega, etc... The gray-market vendors have perpetrated a massive lie about the cost of these things.

    I can't tell you how shocked I was when my local Tourneau quoted the actual MSRP's of various higher-end OEM straps to me... Hundreds and hundreds less than what, say, Authenticwatches.com and other online sellers/ebay vendors are asking.

    How about an isofrane? AFAIK they are about $100.

    I recently bought a rubber strap (Pro Diver) for my Breitling SuperOcean from Tourneau for $75. I was quite surprised by the low price given the ridiculous prices on eBay and elsewhere.
