Breitling’s collection of watches is quite extensive, so it only makes sense that there are a slew of straps that are just as impressive in design and durability. Along with several different styles of bracelets, Breitling watches can also be purchased with a variety of different straps and the collection spans dozens of designs, from beautiful nappa leather to high-tech recycled yarn. To help you choose which is best for your Breitling, we’ve broken it down into the three top categories – leather, rubber and fiber. Get browsing!
Breitling Leather Straps
Leather Alligator Strap
This iconic strap goes well with any of the vintage-inspired Breitling collection as well as the brand’s dress watches. There is a wide array of colors so you can totally customize your look, including blue, green, brown, black, and ‘gold’ which is essentially a lighter brown. These alligator straps come in sizes 20mm-24mm and feature both tang and deployant buckles.
The Breitling calfskin leather band is another classic available for virtually any model from its catalog. Colors include classics like blue and black, along with an entire range of earth-tone brown straps that vary in color from light tan to dark brown. There is also the striking and unique green Military calfskin leather band as well as the traditional green band, which is far more saturated in color. Finally, Breitling also offers a calfskin Nato leather band which also comes in gold. All the clasps are brushed or polished stainless steel, and you can choose between classic tang and folding.
Breitling Rubber Straps
Diver Pro III Rubber
The Diver Pro rubber strap is most popular on the Superocean watch line which it was introduced alongside in 1998. However, is also often paired with timepieces in the Aeromarine and Professional line like the Emergency or Avenger Seawolf. Today, there are a variety of sizes, from 18mm all the way up to 26mm. It typically comes in white, black, and blue color options, although other colors can also be found. You’ll always recognize this watch due to its ‘BREITLING’ text scrawled across the two straps.
This Breitling rubber strap has a distinctive mesh pattern that elevates the entire look and feel of a rubber watch. This strap comes in blue and black, 22mm or 24mm as well as two buckle options, a tang or deployant buckle. You’ll primarily see this style of rubber strap on the Superocean collection of dive watches.
Ocean Racer Rubber
This rubber strap features graduating circular holes across the entire surface, not just where the buckle attaches to the strap. It was first introduced on the Superocean Heritage line and features a breathable, wearable look and feel. It is available in black, blue, and white from 18mm to 22mm in size and features Breitling’s ‘double’ tang buckle.
Breitling Fiber Straps
Nylon Military Strap
Constructed with a sturdy, nylon material, this Military strap was built to withstand both sports and everyday wear and tear. It comes in a dark, gray anthracite color, as well as 22mm and 24mm sizes. Breitling also gives you the choice between a brushed stainless steel tang buckle or a polished 18k red gold buckle, meaning you can easily integrate this strap alongside a dressier watch as well.
ECONYL Yarn Nato Strap
Introduced alongside the new Superocean ‘Outerknown’ watch, which was designed alongside the sustainably driven surf brand where it got its namesake, is the ECONYL® yarn nato strap. Made from recycled nylon waste harvested from the ocean, these nato straps are available for almost any Breitling watch. You’ll find them in six colors: gray, blue, light blue, green, yellow, and red – all with a subtle striping pattern. There are also four different sizes and the choice between a stainless steel or DLC-coated buckle.
