    Re: The New Isofrane

    I just received my Isofrane 20mm blue rubber strap for my Omega Seamaster. Great quality product. However what absolutely surprised me was how quickly they shipped the strap. I placed the order Sunday night, the order was shipped out early Monday morning from Austria and I received it by Wednesday morning in California. Amazing!

    Re: The New Isofrane

    And this has been my experience on two occasions to NY instead of Cali so they don't give any coastal preference.
    I can easily imagine buying another 3 or 4 ISO' s for my other divers. Yes, they make everything look great. Yes, they are amazingly comfortable and yes, the price is tough to swallow but I find it tougher and tougher to argue the price the more I wear the straps. Expensive for a rubber strap but head and shoulders above the rest IMO and I reckon, lots of others opinions as well!

    ISOFrane is the perfect strap for top heavy watches:













    And it just looks dang cool.

    Great review!
    I agree, that is a bit steep for rubber...although some of the OEM prices on rubber straps from the big houses are Insane!... not to mention the quality, thickness, and build is most likely won't measure up to Isofrane... but boast the logo of the brand. That too makes those straps hard to switch among watches, unlike these which will kick a$$ on any diver. I guess this proves the difference of the fleabay desk diver rubber straps and the ones people actually put over a wetsuit when they need the watch to preform underwater.

    Thanks again, great write up OP!

    Good for TOP HEAVY. Guess it would work well on a Milgauss. ;)

    Re: The New Isofrane

    Damn their shipping is fast! I placed an order yesterday at 5pm MST for my first Isofrane to go on my incoming Miyota Armida A1. I got a tracking number this morning at 8:20am. Tracking says that it's due for arrival before 10:30am tomorrow morning! I would expect that if it's coming from the next state over, but not Austria! That's sweet. I won't have anything to put it on though since it's gonna beat the A1 here!

    It takes about five days to come from Vienna to the USA.

    FedEx does not have their act together and do not believe the phone call or even the tracking information from FedEx.

    All 5 of mine (5 separate orders) arrived in Illinois in 3 business days or less. Overseas FEDEX order delays, for me at least, have usually been customs or weather related.

    Re: The New Isofrane

    Looks like I'll have it tomorrow. I've never noticed FedEx tracking to be inaccurate like that. No worries though, it's still damned fast. In fact, I received the Armida today! 42 hours after I placed the order Sunday afternoon I had the A1 in hand from Hong Kong. That's pretty crazy!
