    Best brand new Tropic Rubber Band?

    I notice as much as you hear about Tropic Rubber straps, they're not seen all that often. I'm interested in picking some up for the divers I'm hoarding, but there's no info saying which would be the best ones to buy. Otto Freis like hte one posted below have the perfect look and seem to have a good price, but I'd be concerned about it being a dust magnet. What would you all recommend?

    Example:

    Check out bonetto cinturini or hirsch to see whether they offer any tropic style brands. Both are OEM manufacturers for a variety of watch brands, both use caoutchouc so they are very soft and flexible, and do not attract dust which silicon does.

    BC pure rubber straps get my vote. Silicone and latex straps are the ones that tend to attract dust/lint/etc.

    Thanks for these. I'm looking through the catalog, but am not sure- do you guys know a model of theirs that looks most like the tropic strap from Otto Frei?

    Thanks David, this looks great? How does the quality feel to you, would you say its lint attraction is annoying or is it not a big deal?

    the strap feels great, no issues with it at all. it has been sitting on an open shelf for months (when not on a watch) and no dust at all.

    That looks good. Roughly, what's the thickness?
