I have an IWC Aquatimer 3719 Titanium on a rubber strap and would like to investigate getting a replacement titanium bracelet. Is the only avenue through the authorised dealer network? I have googled for an answer but cannot seem to find much.

Many thanks.

You could try checking this site from time to time, but I it's not something you're likely see to be honest

Have you asked a dealer how much? Be prepared for a shock.

Best of luck.

Thanks for the link. I have just spent my forthcoming lottery win in one visit. I haven't been brave enough to approach a dealer yet but I suspect i would need a stiff drink both before and after!

I asked my AD about a replacement bracelet for a mkXV, and was told including vat it came to a shade under £1k.

I went through a similar thing when I used to have a Ti Luminor Marina on blue alligator, quite fancied getting the Ti bracelet to match. PAM wanted £1950.00! and that was two years ago.
At the time I wished I'd gone for the Ti bracelet version then bought in the strap, would have been much cheaper that way as the whole package price between the two was only a couple of hundred if memory serves.

Not so bothered now as its gone anyway.

Ti bracelets are obscene, my daily beater is a titanium Seamaster which is now about 14 years old, where the st/st pins are harder than the ti links they have worn with wearing the holes elongated, the strap hence now has really sloppy links and a huge amount of deflection. There is no solution apart from a new bracelet, over a grand! It's now on a nice kevlar/leather strap!
