    Been loving my WatchGecko Swiss Tropic Rubber strap in 20mm.

    Can anyone tell me if the Ofrei version has a noticeable smell? I really like this style of strap, but I don't want a strap that I can smell when it is on my wrist. Also curious how strong the smell is on the WatchGecko version. Do you notice it when it is on your wrist? When eating, etc?

    .haejuk- It's a fair question. The WatchGecko grapefruit scent isn't overbearing, you really only notice it if it's right by your face and you're paying attention. Granted I've had mine a few months now, but the scent hasn't been an issue.

    I haven't handled the OFREI ones, but I'm happy that this one doesn't attract any lint unlike silicone.

    Thanks for the answer. For now I was able to find an Amazon seller that sells the Ofrei one (probably) for $15 shipped. If I can't stand the dust and lint I might try the WatchGecko one. I wish there was a higher quality version that was unscented, but I can't seem to find one. I love the 20mm tropical strap that comes with the Oris Diver 65, but those are pretty expensive and don't come in other sizes.

    Are you able to compare the smell to a Bonetto Cinturini? Just wondering if WG tropic is weaker or similar smell strength. I have a Bonetto Cinturini at home and the scent started bothering me pretty quickly.

    The Ofrei strap is a dust magnet. Not even worth the cheap price IMHO.

    Correcto, its so annoying. As you said, does not worth it.

    You know who sells the very same strap but anti-dust treated?? Meranom in Russia, he even has more color options Blue, Black and Orange. I have the 3!

    The cheaper 'Tropic' style straps I've had are silicone but no longer pick up lint after a good wash with some hand soap. Still going strong after a few years. However, I'm sure the WG ones are better quality as reflected in the price. You get what you pay for (usually).

    The main problem with the cheaper ones I've found is that they only fit 1.5mm spring bars, not 1.8mm.
