Hi Chris,

The end links are very specific so you have to be carefull with what you buy. I hope Ron will reply to this thread too, he's an expert on this kind of details!

If all Breitling AD's were as knowledgeable as Ron, they could learn us a lot instead of the other way around (most of the time :-D)

Kind regards,

Cinq

A twinsixty will take a 423 bracelet (my 423 bracelet will fit on my twinsixty)

I believe the 3 main bracelets are (but this is from memory):

'normal' navitimer case (Old Navi, Cosmo , Twinsixty etc)
'50th anniv.' 471 end pieces
1461 case (cant remember the end piece number)

Wow....I thought ordering a bracelet would be a relatively simple process. I had no idea there would be so many things to sort out.

My new Navitimer is a standard model (A2332212/B635). The descriptions on the two bracelet I was looking at on ebay indicate they are models 426A and 431A. Will both of these fit or do I need to be looking for a specific model?

SnapIT:

Great info. If I am reading it correctly then the correct bracelet for my Standard Navitimer (A2332212/B635) would be the 431A.

It appears that the 426A is for the Navitimer World model.

Where did you find the list of model numbers? This is very useful info that I will keep handy for future reference.

Cheers,
Chris

Thanks for your reply.
Do you mean that there is a bracelet called the 423 or do you mean that I should use the 431 bracelet that fits a 423 navitimer ?


Thanks for your input.

Oyvind:

I am certainly not an authoritative source, but I have seen reference to a 423A model bracelet for the Cosmonaught. I don't know whether it will work on your Twinsixty.

I am have similar questions regarding the compatibility of the 431A bracelet and my standard Navitimer (A2332212/B635).

May require a visit to an AD to look through the dealer catalog and determine what will work.
