    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    May I ask; have you tried this strap over a wet / dry suit for fit and if not do you believe there would be any issues during an actual dive due to its length or ease of adjustment for squeeze during a dive?

    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    Not yet Bill, but I will try it on over my 5mil and add that information to the post. Doubtful that it would fit over a dry suit, but I guess it depends on the style of dry suit.

    But thanks for reminding me of another item on my 'wish list' for ISOfrane - an extension piece such as is available for the TF strap and previously available for the vintage isofrane

    Thanks, Nalu and Subkrawler as well. I just placed my order for the pvd buckle version. I think it will look sweet on my Dwatch, and just in time for the warmer weather.

    Nalu, your pics rock.

    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    Thanks for the comprehensive isofrantic review. I was at first a bit put off by the price of the new Isofrane, but it really looks competitive to the vintage, which border on unobtanium and a bargain compared to the Omega variants. Thanks to the kindness of fellow a fellow Brooklynite, I am able to enjoy my vintage Isofrane. However, I wouldn't hesitate to get a new 20mm when they come out.

    Well done, Colonel.

    Guido, I get a 192mm effective strap length. To determine whether it will fit you on your watch, add your watch's springbar hole to springbar hole distance to 192mm. E.g., the LM-7 is ~42mm, so the overall length of the ISOfrane/LM-7 combo is about 234mm/9.2 inches.

    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    Sorry again for the crossed streams on your last post :oops:

    I'd say the differences between my measurements and the official ones are easily accounted for by the fact that:

    1. I was using a plastic desk ruler and eyeballing the measurements, and
    2. I was not measuring the length of rubber, but rather from the springbar hole to tip/springbar hole.

    In any event, I think this strap will work for all but the largest-wristed of us (Shane, who is a 9-1/4" IIRC). Fortunately, there aren't too many watches with 24mm lug width that are short in the lug to lug dimension. However, there are short watches with 20mm and 22mm lug widths so I hope ISOfrane is keeping that in mind.
