Skully needs a RUBBER

Post by bodypeersur on Mon 16 Aug 2010, 11:09 am

Okay, I still haven't been able to find a worthy rubber or silicone strap for Skully and the VERY COOL skull buckle sent to me by Robert. Mark gave me a couple links but nothing that I felt was "perfect" for this combo. I did see a Hirsch rubber strap that caught my eye but way over priced! So I'm still in search. If anyone has anymore links to some great rubber straps, post em up!

I have liked some of the straps and rubber that I have gotten from International Watchman and his prices are the absolute rock bottom to boot!

Tim, Tim, Tim...that was a picture I didn't need!!!! I'M BLIND! MY OPTIC NERVES ARE FRIED!!! But really, great offer buddy. The lugs of the watch and the buckle both require 24mm. Many of the ones I like are 24mm at the lug but 22mm at the buckle.

Ah, oh well, since it came from Noah, and it fits Seiko, 22mm is the size, at the lugs.

Nope, Isophane drops to 22mm at the buckle as well, but thanks for the research Mark.

most rubber taper, save the cool buckle for another project and buy a hirsch extreme... i know they arent cheap and have to come from Europe but the a friggin cool looking and i'm going to get one in 24mm and use it for my seal, zilla and a couple other watches! If you want something special and different it's the way to go!

I don't think so. It looks like a dual deployant. The one rubber strap that really catches my eye and it just won't work with Skully. Oh well, the search continues.

How about Maratec? Syntheitic, size is right. I have one that is black with red stitching.

Thanks John but I'd really like a rubber dive strap. I know they're out there...somewhere. My only other choice might be black buffalo.

Yes I did John, but I think they all taper 2mm at the buckle end from what I can tell.

I'd contact them Duff. A few of them are listed as Panerai style so they may be same width the entire length.

I think the only ones that don't taper are the double tang straps. The skull buckle I'm planning on using is a single tang, but I'll try getting in touch with them.

All the rubber dive straps taper. They have some in leather and shark. I just think if I'm going to remove the bracelet, rubber is the way to go.

The one I listed Duff is 24/24mm. The lug end is 24mm with a flare over the lug and then it narrows back to a 24mm at the buckle.
