    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    Thanks Colin, great review.
    Just to add one or two things.
    1. As i am looking for a blue Strap for my Ploprof i ordered a
    blue one from O7, but the color looks quite cheap IMHO
    and does not fit at all to the blue of the Ploprof dial.
    2. i also ordered the strap from TF in 20mm (nice price by the way)
    and this one really has a strong chemical smell which i hope
    will be gone when i wore it for some time.
    3. i also own the original Omega strap in black this one is from
    my point of view the best replacement for an original isofrane strap

    Also can´t wait for the blue 24mm version from ISOfrane.

    That is a cracking review Colin But I'm even more impressed by your watch collection, there is some serious PloProf going on there!!!

    Is the Timefactors strap silicon or polyurethane?

    It says poly on the site but I can tell you from experience that it is silicone. Or if it is Poly it is a very soft silicone like poly. BTW I am not a lover of silicone and wish it had been made of a more sturdy rubber. Cant wait for the Isofranes to come in 20mm and 22mm.

    Excellent review Colin!

    I've been wearing my Isofrane on the Emperor Tuna for two weeks now and I absolutely love it. IMO it's the best strap on the market!

    Thanks for the review. What is the qualitative difference between the Platts bands and the Isofrane. I was thinking that would be a nice band for some of my more inexpensive watches.

    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    Greg, beyond the description and impressions I already noted in the review, I'm not sure how to answer your question. What specifically are you looking for when you say "qualitative differences"?

    IMO, both are very good straps and attractive for their price points. But I much prefer the ISOfrane strap for looks and refinement.

    I can see where one wouldn't necessarily want to put a 130USD strap on a sub-500USD watch, so I agree that the Time Factors strap is a great alternative for less expensive pieces. The TF strap is certainly very comfortable, seems durable enough and comes in a selection of sizes not often found in this style of strap. It is a bit of a lint magnet however.
