    Agree about the gray, although I've heard that getting the pigments right with this particular rubber compound isn't as easy as flipping a switch. Hopefully in due time!

    Re: The New Isofrane

    Hello
    I recently acquired a black Isofrane 20mm, and it seems to me it is noticeably softer than my other Isofrane I had, an orange 22mm.
    Since I don't have it anymore I cannot directly compare them.
    Did any of you notice something similar or am I dreaming?
    Is it possible that the coloring affects the softness?
    Thanks in advance

    I doubt it'd be the pigments - was the strap used? I've heard they do tend to soften a little with time and frequent wear.

    Thanks, yes this one is used, the prior one was not, so that could be a factor

    It's not your imagination. The black ones are noticeably softer than any other color I've owned.

    The New Isofrane

    Where can we start the petition to get the NATO green iso in 24mm? I have a Panerai and Blancpain desperately waiting.

    Re: The New Isofrane

    I bought a dark blue one for my Omega SMP Bond and was thinking I'd never give so much money for a rubber again, then I strapped it for some days and get why it is said to be THE rubber. Soft, supple, resistant, went hiking, mtb , sauna and after all it just cleans with a bit of water and still kept its vanilla scent.

    Some of you notch them in narrower lugs to balance top heavy watches ? Like Planet Ocean, MM300 or heavy divers with 20mm lug width ?

    6105 feels a bit top heavy (heavier than my Black Bay at least) but fit is sturdy enough with a 20mm iso
