Some of us collect watches and keep all of them, some of us just buy and later sell and like me probably had over hundreds of watches since your watch ''addiction'' started.
Some of you also buy alot of watch strap and bands to satisfy your taste.
I've learned many things in the years about watches, the different parts, material used for watches, crystal material this vs that, etc... but one thing that is still not clear to me is all the different kinds of materials used for making watch straps.
I've had straps made of: Rubber, Silicone, Urethane, Polyurethane, etc...We know also that sometimes more expensive does not mean more quality.
For exemple the most durable one I've owned is the Citizen strap with the depth rating printed on which can be purchased for $25. ( which I don't know the material it's made of)
What is the difference between all these materials?
Which is the most resistant in the long run?
Which has less tendency to tear?
Which is the best for a watch that will be used for diving?
