Hey everyone,

I picked up a black Mido all-dial chronometer on black leather.

Ideally, I'd like a stainless steel bracelet for it but haven't seen them available (I check the 'Bay fairly regularly).

I emailed midowatchdealer.com but never received a reply. I'd guess it would be rather expensive if I were to try to source one direct from Mido.

It's got an odd attachment because it has 4 notches cut into the lugs/band.

Has anyone replaced a leather band with SS on one of these?

Any other suggestions (besides live with it)?

TIA

:)

Probably your cheapest option would be to buy another all dial in not so good shape for cheap with bracelet, switch the bracelet out to yours, put the black leather one on that one and flip it off for cheap. IMHO, you won't loose out much on it since All dial isn't very expensive to begin with. (I saw a brand new all dial non COSC for under $500 so used one in OK shape should be much cheaper)

One of the reasons why I get bracelet watch if I have choice. Much easier (relatively speaking) to get a leather band compared to the bracelet that fits nice.

As a matter of fact, I just got a Mido All dial COSC Ti on bracelet coming to me - Finally pulled trigger on Mido all dial after all this time.

With Speedy Pro and mido, I have 2 down from my wish list.
