That sounds pretty much like BS to me...There are, however, 2 different sizes of Khaki Field Chronos. A 38mm and a 42mm and I don't know it the lug sizes are the same. I put a stock 22mm Watchadoo SS Bracelet on mine (42mm) which I like better than the oem bracelet.Any here know if it is possible to change the Khaki strap to a original Hamilton SS bracelet without fitting issue? I was told by a AD that you cannot do that, it will not fit nicely as the crown is design differently for leather/Khaki to a SS bracelet. How true is that? This is the 1st time I heard of this.
