New Vintage Style Tropic Rubber Straps - Now Available
The tropic rubber straps we all love finally received a modern makeover!
Our new tropic rubber straps stay true to their vintage roots with diamond-shaped perforations, raised notched edges, and a waffle pattern underside. Made from soft medical grade FKM rubber in a more accommodating length (130mm x 80mm), it's perfect for both vintage and modern dive watches alike.
