Dive watch fanatic since 1980
I've been looking for a bracelet to mate up with my blasted MkII Sea Fighter to little success. I received the watch from MkII with a generic stiff rubber strap...they were out of their nice soft ribbed strap at the time. I've never liked it much, but yesterday I slipped on the metal keeper from the even worse Eco-Zilla rubber strap and it did improve the looks, if not the comfort.
I do seem to remember somebody mentioning a bracelet that's now available from MkII, but I cant seem to find any info on it. Failing that, now I'm thinking that this Isofrane strap may be the way to go.
I've never seen or handled one, and know nothing about the history other than what I've read here. I hope it's really as comfortable as some here claim.

I hear you...I have it in my favorites right on the tool bar....first click when I hit the net now....

I was lucky enough to attend a GTG last night and met an awesome dive watch collector who had an Isofrane prototype and all I can say is that this strap is incredible. It was comfortable and well made. I was afraid it might be too long for my 6 1/2 inch wrist and though it was long it worked. It was also mounted on a Kobold AD which is a big watch and still worked. I was on the fence prior to trying it due to the length, but this is a must have strap.
