Interesting, but pricey. May interest those who like a rubber strap.

Well that was disappointing to say the least! I was hoping for a Rolex on a condom at the very least.

Don't own a Rolex. But I do find it interesting that a company that makes rubber straps has a concept tab on their webpage. The "concept" is to charge people $200 bucks or more for a vulcanized rubber strap. Capitalism, got to love it.

I'm surprised by how good they look, but not surprised enough to pay $220 for a rubber strap for my sub.

I keep rubbers away from my Rolex in the hopes that it will reproduce.

The prices dont really surprise me. Now if this was a strap for a less expensive brand It would raise questions. The company probably feels that the majority of rolex buyers arent exactly worried about how much things cost. I know occasionally someone will buy a rolex who cant afford more then one but I think the majority of rolex owners are pretty well off. There is no denying though that its a very high price for something that can be cut out of the sole of my shoe.

Ugh...rubber on a Rolex? Rubber straps are totally Casio - and they are uncomfortable besides. There is nothing watch-related that can be finer than six ounces of stainless steel fastened with a deployment clasp around your wrist.

You silly douchebag, what's wrong with Casio? Furthermore, you are making the mistake of assuming the value of a watch is based entirely on its cost or that the way the watch is attached to your wrist is anything more than an expendable fucking accessory! What, we are supposed to ooo and ahh at your comment because of one grainy photo of a Rolex? As for being uncomfortable, they may well be...TO YOU. It's douche nozzle replica watch fan boys like you making generalizations that piss me off on every forum I am a member of, be it watches, firearms or any of the others...I personally don't think you are going to last long here if you keep running your cock holster like that.

I only wear rubber or NATO. But those straps were rubbish for the price being asked.

The clasp on the Sea Dweller strap was stamped metal and they want $220?!?! LOL

I can get a couple of Isofranes or a bunch of Benetto Cinturni 317's for around the same price. What a joke

My 16600 is on a BC now. Great strap, superb quality, very comfortable, feels durable, and kinda pricey at $50 or so. $220 is a joke.

Pics or it didn't happen. A link would be nice, too. I'd like to try something like that on my 5513.

It's a Bonetto Cinturini but I can't remember the number. This is the same company that supplies Isofrane, but at approximately half the price. The buckles aren't as nice as you get with the Isofrane.

Nice! A link for online purchase, or did you get that in a retail store "down under"?

1) I never said anything was wrong with Casio. I *did* say that rubber straps do not belong on a Rolex.

2) Some people like different things. I want a big hunk o' stainless steel with an automatic movement. Nice big solid steel brick watches turn me on. About that 'expendable fucking accessory', that would be your view - which I will be quick to point out is just as legitimate as mine.

3) About that Rolex photo - I dont care if you ooh and ahh or not. I posted it because I thought others might want to see it. Apparently not. The family heirloom part matters more to me than the Rolex part. Besides, I don't really like it that much - I only keep it for sentimental value.

4) Yeah, the rubber / plastic bands are uncomfortable to me. Others call them perfect. Opinion.

5) Douche nozzle replica fan boys? Surely you can tell the difference between a homage and a replica, right?

Obviously, since I don't own any replicas or homages. Nice to see you can count to five.

Rubber on a Rolex? Unfortunately, that's a decision that I will never have to ponder.

I like the look of a Sub on a black strap, rubber (flat, not vented) or otherwise, including Zulu straps. 200 bucks is too much, though.

If I had a Sub, I would certainly make the occasional strap/bracelet swap. Same as I do on my current watches.

"Homages" are basically replicas without ripping off the actual logo of the real watch; stolen designs, made by lesser companies that can't design their own watches and worn by poseurs hoping to confuse unsuspecting non-wis into thinking they spent real money for something nice.

If you can't afford a real Rolex, no biggie, but why don't you invest your money in something affordable that isn't a ripped-off design?

I think homages are weak.

There are no such things as homages IMO. They are all rip-offs.

I get being inspired by an awesome design and taking it further. But just rebadging someone elses work is theft.

This is pointless. You enjoy your homage watches and I'll enjoy my Casios and rubber straps. Let's get back on topic.

Which was exactly what I was about to propose.
