Thread: Orange rubber straps

  1. #1

    Orange rubber straps

    I'm looking for an orange 20mm natural rubber strap (scented or not, doesn't matter) to save the dings and scratches on my jubilee bracelet. Seems like my options are:






    I have a Hirsch Pure in black that fits the watch perfectly, the smooth texture looks good with the watch. I haven't seen one with the Zodiac branded tropic style, but it seems like it would fit the watch perfectly.

    Are there any others? No silicone, natural rubber only.

    Funny you mention the Zodiac I was going to purchase that one for my Seawolf.

    I don't know how to buy them, but Bonetto Cinturini sells orange straps.

    Thanks. I've tried them in the past, they're decent quality but a bit thick.

    True, true. That style especially.

    This one is thinner:

    This is only 2.75mm thick, but doesn't taper:

    I've had a few BC straps over the years (I am also like 94% sure they're the supplier for Marathon's rubber straps) and the quality for the price is simply unmatched in my experience.

    The first style you posted is the same as the Glycine rubber, too. Possibly the same factory/supplier.

    If I recall correctly, that's what came on my GSAR and TSAR. I preferred the thinner one they used on the JSAR, but I don't think they ever made that style in 20mm.

    I might try and dig up my old rubber straps and try one out. Although, I don't really have any watch that I would wear on rubber anymore.

    Sub on Everest or RubberB is nice. The fitted ends give a nicer finished look to it.

    I have this one on my Oak & Oscar and love it.
