    I have a Autavia 11630MH (orange) with a post sale small stainless bracelet
    I want to replace this and as an original beads of rice is just ridiculous money I would be interested in suggestions based on what you may have seen
    Modern BoR copy , thick leather, black vintage look leather?
    Also is it worth adding a Heuer buckle?
    Thanks for your help

    Hello Roger - I think you're on the right way already.
    Original BoR are surely all the rage but they are so expensive it's questionable whether it makes sense.
    Replacement / modern-copy BoR are an option but like the original ones they have hollow end-links so they tend to sag at the link junction after a while. Luckily Cal.12 Autavias look good on the vast majority of straps.
    My suggestion is to get hold of a racing strap with small holes and ideally one with orange accents that match the dial.
    I have made a similar combo on my 510.500 (black dial with orange chrono hands) and I love it.
    A (modern) Heuer buckle would then be the icing on the cake.
    Cheers,
    Fabrizio
