    Hello Everyone,

    Looking to see if anyone has tried this. I have a Monaco Caliber 6 that i dont like the band (snake skin). I am thinking on getting a formula one band that is Ceramic & Steel. I think the contrasts will look very nice. Has anyone tried this or know if it will work. Not sure the connection will work. Thoughts/Ideas?

    I don't believe it will fit.
    The Monaco is 22mm at the lugs, that bracelet is 21 or 20 I guess.
    I also doubt the curvature would sit well in between the Monaco's lugs.

    There are alternatives for the Monaco; rubber, black, rally black etc... or you could go the custom-made way.

    I'm not sure either- even putting aside the question of size, you'd want to be sure that the end pieces/ connections will give you a look that you are happy with

    I do know they make a 22mm of that, but as you guys say its all dependent on the look.

    @elbeik
    In my collection, i have a bunch of leather but not many steel. Also thought that this would look nice together.

    @Calibre11
    Im with you. The hard part is most TH Boutiques dont have one laying around that I can throw on to see if I like it. You would think though for as much as a manufacturer band costs you would be able to do so.

    It will look nice based on color matching.
    However the Monaco is very angular and that bracelet is curvy. It will not embrace the lugs as it should.
