    weaved rubber strap for BR 123

    my husband has the BR 123 sport heritage with a steel bracelet. I would like to buy him a rubber strap : ideally the weaved black rubber B-P-027 which seems unavailable for more than one month already or the black simple one B-P-025.

    Do you know which buckle goes with the original BR123 on the weaved rubber strap ? It should be a polished finish steel one but it doesn't exist online and there is only a polished satin finished steel one (FA-I-010) which doesn't seem the same to me.

    I just don't think that if the watch is polished steel the buckle should be polished satin one ...

    Otherwise, which buckle would you recommend ? Do you think I could go for the simple black rubber strap (is it compatible with the br 123 sport heritage ?) with the Steel pin buckle with matte black PVD finish FA-IC-005 (or the polished satin one) ?

    It might be a simple thing but I don't want to order a bad one as it will be a gift for my husband and I still want his BR to look perfect.


    Thank you.

    Hi,
    Definitely think that the best combo would be the weaved rubber with the satin buckle (FA-I-011)
    It would be weird with the FA-I-010.
    If not available online, you can order them asking your AD.

    Basic black rubber B-P-025 is compatible of course but wouldn't match imho

    In anything at all, perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away.

    @fatboy1340 : holes are different on your strap with the 007 ?
    Round or rectangular ?

    Jimigigi,

    Both of BP025 or BP027 work with the Sport Heritage. Strange that they are unavailable on the eboutique, but there are few pieces available in BR Paris Boutique.

    Regarding the buckle, be careful with the picture on the website, the visual of the complete polished buckle is wrong (FAI011), that buckle doesnt exist completely polished.
    In fact the buckle is satined with polished edges FAI011, while the FAI010 is completely satined. So in your case, the vintage is polished so you should go for the FAI011 with polished edges.
