    Good 21mm Bracelet Options?

    I'm new to Ball, having picked up a Magneto S about a month ago. Absolutely love it and this won't be my last Ball. But I would like a bracelet for it and not sure how to get one. 21mm is tricky! Any suggestions? I posted a WTB add too. Anyone have a Magneto and have a good one they have found? Thanks!

    Quick follow-up. Does anyone know if they ever produced the Engineer II Magneto Valor II? It has a bracelet that might fit the Magneto S perfectly... if I could get one somehow.

    I am sure they did. There was a pre- order a couple of years ago. Like to the forum discussion is found here. https://forums.watchuseek.com/f239/e...r-4584597.html

    You might get most of the information you seek in a much faster time if you use the search function in WUS and just type in the key words. At least you won't have to put up a post and wait a few days for someone to respond.

    Unfortunately Ball Watches is not as popular as some of the leading brands (e.g. Rolex, Breitling, Omega or Seiko) and so there isn't a lot of manufacturers out there who are willing to invest in the tooling to manufacture bracelets that will fit a Ball Watch. Hope you can find the bracelet that fits.

    Here is a link to a vendor that does carry uneven sized bands. Not sure about their bracelet selection though-

    Check with a Ball AD, such as Rob at Topper. I know they can order replacement bracelets, and they might be able to tell you if there's a bracelet for another Ball watch that will fit yours.

    Yeah, forgot about that option too.

    I have my Magneto on a leather strap from cheapestnatos.

    Not the best strap IMO but looks great and cheap enough to experiment with a few different colors and materials.

    In terms of a bracelet; please post if you find a good one. I think the Valor bracelet is going to be particularly expensive though.

    So I contacted Ball directly and they confirmed the Valor II bracelet would fit perfectly... Not cheap but I was really looking for something like that so I pulled the trigger. Got it today (took about a week) and I'm really happy. Butterfly clasp is fantastic and super comfortable. Was $250 total including shipping.

    I'm terrible at photos, but here are a few. Let me know if you want more or something specific. It is really comfortable!
