This PF becomes such a different watch when on its bracelet.
I've had this watch on a leather strap since buying it a couple months ago and enjoyed it that way. I had to have a few missing screws and pins replaced on the bracelet before I could switch from the strap and that was accomplished this past Friday.
I have to thank Naomi Alonso, the Operations Manager at the Parmigiani service center in Florida. She was very helpful and professional in answering my questions and having the bracelet serviced. To my surprise this was at no cost, even the return shipping was provided for free. I now know who I'll send the watch to when it's time for servicing.
The bracelet has turned it into a completely different watch, in a positive way. The strap made its 40mm size appear much larger, almost too large for its design, due to the widely set lugs. But on the bracelet, the lugs appear more proportional and the overall look seems more coherent. And the brushed titanium center links contrast nicely with the polished steel outer links and the rest of the watch. Nicely done, Parmigiani!
This is not an easy watch to attach the bracelet to! It's an odd set of proprietary pins and spring bars, coved by tiny steel plates. I'm sure PF must have some specific tool to facilitate this, I, however, do not. lol
Overall, either on the leather band or now on the bracelet, I'm very pleased with this PF.
