    Will the Cannonball bracelet fit the Aviator GMT?

    As beautiful as it is, and as many compliments as I get (it's the most complimented watch I've ever owned), the 46mm Aviator is just too darned big. . . . even for someone of my robust size.

    I'm seriously considering the Aviator GMT which, at 44mm, should be just right.

    I understand that the Aviator GMT and Cannonball each have a 21mm lug width. Given the interchangeability between so many Ball watches and bracelets (for example, at least three different 20mm Ball bracelets fit the EMII and Trainmaster cases), I wonder . . . will the Cannonball bracelet fit the Aviator GMT???

    Can you help Jeremy? If it does, you may find some more of us US "gotta-have-my-bracelet" guys looking at the Aviator GMT!

    The one concern I can immediately see is the fit at the lugs. However, you may find that either bracelet fits work well enough. If you like, you can contact Ball Watch USA to have them play around with it a bit.

    Best of luck, Rob!

    Cheers,

    Has anybody found the answer to this yet? I just got my Aviator GMT less than a week ago, and although I am enjoying a leather band, I would ultimately like to have a Ball SS bracelet on my Aviator GMT!

    Not really, but Jeremy's always been a great help.

    I just haven't picked up the phone to call Kent or one of the other people at Ball to get the answer.

    They've always been good to find out such things. They figured out that the 5-link bracelet fit the Trainmaster and they frankened an oyster bracelet to fit my EMII Engineer, so I'm confident that they'll at least try to fit a Cannonball bracelet on the GMT. I just need to get off my backside and call.

    Within reasonable bounds, of course.

    A year ago, I asked Ball if they could put the blued dauphin hands from the EMII COSC LE into the Moonglow. They asked the white coats in Switzerland, who said that it couldn't be done (crystal clearance issue). I was disappointed yet very pleased that Ball even took the time to investigate a question like that.

    Just one of many reasons why I'm a fan of Ball.
