    Finally I can wear my sun023

    I've had it over a year but found the original strap couldn't handle the heat of this piece. So I tried a few leathers which didn't turn out right, so I moved onto the obris Morgan straps but they don't do 24mm, yet I wore it on a 22mm for a while which didn't turn out right.

    So I thought of flipping it and buying an apollon, and I see the rubber straps are supposed to be made of high quality along with the clasps. So I ordered the apollon along with two rubber straps and three clasps, two clasps can be worn with the Seiko and three with the apollon.

    I was more excited in getting the straps than I was of getting the Apollon. So it arrived Thursday and today I got round to adjusting the rubber, my god it was big. Finally adjusted and fitted, it is really comfy up there with my tissot touch strap which I think is the most comfortable rubber out there. And at €40+ including clasp it's a bargain. Now don't all of you go rush out and buy one.

    Glad you're happy with it. I wear my 021 on an Isofrane and the two could have been made for each other in my book.

    It's a real chunk of rubber, quality all round, took me half hr sizing it up, was a difficult cut with it being so thick and stiff.

    Substantial looking and agree that Steinhart make some good quality straps for very reasonable prices. I do however have a personal rule that prohibits mixing brands but that's probably just me. Enjoy!
