RUBBER B – a company located in Miami, Florida – introduced vulcanized rubber straps for a number of Rolex sports models. Their rubber straps will fit seamlessley to your Rolex Oyster case and the original Rolex clasp of the Oyster bracelet will fit without a problem. I came across these straps by reading Jake’s Rolex Blog where he covered RUBBER B straps already. Go over there to see some more pictures of the straps, including some close-ups of the strap attached to the original Rolex clasp.

This rubber strap could be an excellent alternative if you don’t want to wear your Rolex with a bracelet while swimming, on the beach or just during summer. RUBBER B claims the straps to be of an impeccable quality, entirely manufacturerd in Switzerland.

As you can see on the picture above, the strap fits perfectly to a Sea-Dweller (ref.16600) and since I have one of those, I would personally pick the brown one 🙂 There are also other colors to choose from, like black, white and blue.

RUBBER B’s straps can be ordered through their website for $220.- USD a strap.

    Nice strap, but kind of a steep price for a rubber strap

      I once produced my company’s product in Switzerland, and it was very very expensive. I eventually had to move the manufacturing to Portugal, and it was 70 percent cheaper. If these Rubber B straps are made of quality Swiss workmanship, then I can guarantee you they cost a fortune to manufacture!

    For a more toned-down, less blingly look, these bands look to be a good alternative to brushing a polished center links on the oysterband.

    I have one ordered for my GMT-C and will share my experiences in the usual places (message boards, website.)  I chatted with Benjamin last week about them and he is pretty passionate on getting this band right.

    Good idea, but 220 $ is a bit of a joke for a piece of rubber, whether it fits a Rolex or not.

    I’m sure that, withing 6 months, another company will provide the same product at 1/4 of the price.

      This is impossible. Swiss people don’t work for the same price as Chinese. Plus, I bought this strap and when I saw the inserts and the moulding levels, I understood why it is this price. It does not bend at the case, and is not stretchy at all. Very high tech product.

    I posted a review at http://www.minus4plus6.com/rubberb.htm  Can you post a link to it?  No worries if offsite links create problems with advertisers, etc, but I thought I would ask.

    I got a Rubber B on my 116610 & love it, I meet guys with Rolex & they always ask where did you get that. Plus if you got a $8k watch what’s $200?
