Thanks....I pulled the trigger pretty quickly on the auction based on the good feedback on the seller, so I just wanted to get some expert opinions to see if I had made a wise decision.

Now I just have to figure out how to change over straps when it arrives!

Alan,

Thanks for the link...I actually found it earlier and was successful in using the Bergeon 6111 spring bar tool I bought to swap straps. I really like the Croco strap, especially with the Deployant Clasp....I have a much better fitting strap and really like the Brown Croco look. I got a pretty good deal and actually bought another Black Croco strap from the same seller.

I also have a bracelet, but have decided to wait until the warm weather arrives to try it out. I will save your instructions for future use...it is always great to have so many knowledgeable people to learn the tricks of the trade from.:gold

Cheers,
Chris

Interestingly, I call Breitling today to find out how long my B-1 was going to take to be returned for its two year service (only 3-4 weeks!). I also inquired about that exact same strap. I was quoted at $400. I presume that was not with the deployant clasp. So it is retail price. have you tried calling your authorized dealer?

Actually the deal I got was for a Brown Croco strap with the Deployant Clasp....the Strap alone has a retail price of $400 and the Deployant is another $200. I got both for $395 + $12 for shipping and insurance. The strap and clasp were both authentic Breitling and brand new. I am very happy with the purchase.:-!
