The H2O MARLIN 40mm will have a thinner bracelet which makes it necessary to change the screw heads. The space required for the hex heads is not available or the screw head walls will become too thin and will not hold against the torgue of the screw driver. Therefore we will use slotted screws on the 22mm wide / 3.6mm heigh bracelet.
My engineer will work on the next weekend on the H2O rubber strap and the end link, which will allow standard straps to be attached without loosing the look of the bracelet end link. In this case not only normal leather straps could be attached but also ISOFRANE for example. We will make a H2O MARLIN rubber strap that will also fit to all our other watches and takes over the two groves from the end link. It will be a 24mm/22mm or 22/22mm design and using a butterfly clasp. I´m not sure about the material, because personally I would like to go for the best possible high end rubber material instead of standard EPDM which all my competitors are using. This special rubber material would almost tripple the purchasing costs and would be the same material AP or Hublot are using for their rubber straps. It would withstand sea water or UV rays much better compared to EPDM and last about twice as long. At the end it´s all a matter of product quality we want to reach and price.
