Nautic Basket Weave Black Rubber Style Watch Strap
Retro Sport Vibes
A great Hommage to the well known and popular 70s Tropic straps. Made from a TPU without plasticizer but yet with a super soft and smooth touch. It can easily be fitted to almost any sports and tool watch within seconds.
They're inspired by the most popular version from back in the day – a 'basket-weave’ finish with perforations and two ‘cords’ on the edges – and come in a matte black colour that looks great with vintage and modern steel watches. They’re rounded off by a brushed finish and Swiss made steel buckle.
Length: 11,5 + 8 cm (4.53 + 3.15 in.)
I'm quite happy with my new strap because it adds a classy vintage look to my Seamaster 300. However, of course, I must admit I added an original Omega buckle to it.
It feels very comfortable and you almost stop noticing it. And you'll like the shine.
I am, however, worried about the durability of the product. 'Rubber style' is exactly right because it looks like a genuine tropic strap but it isn' t.
Well, the word 'style' gives it away. I'm not much of a chemist and I don't know much about TPU but the strap feels definitely on the plastic side of rubber. Compared to other tropic straps I own and that are made of vulcanized rubber I'm a bit worried about how the strap will age. I dare to predict it will become brittle at some point. Time will tell. Until then I'll definitely like it!
Great quality and looks amazing. I would buy it again.
Excellent tropic also available in smaller sizes
My watch looks so much better in B&S rubber strap
