    New member and have a few questions

    Hi guys just joined the forum so please bear with me and hopefully posting this in the right section.

    only became big on watches a few years ago and its become a bit of an addiction. Anyways i was recently out looking for a half decent reasonably priced casual watch to wear daily as i got a few scratches on my mont blanc while at work and ended up buying a tw steel tw680. Not really been that big on them but actually really liked the look of the tw680...but i am not keen on the ''rubber'' strap which i'm guessing is silicone since every bit of dust and hair sticks to it.

    Does anyone know any other straps that i could replace it with that is resistant to dust and hair?

    Welcome aboard! I am not a big strap guy so I'm going to leave you in the hands of more able bodied members. I'm partial to nato straps on my casual watches but that's just me. Good luck.

    Of course it's all personal taste but I, personally, would go with either a NATO or a thick distressed oiled leather strap.

    Welcome to watchuseek! Looking at pics of the TW680, it looks like the strap was designed specifically to fit that watch. You might have trouble finding an exact fit in another material. You could try finding a strap in the material you like, and notching it to fit like the original one, or use a NATO or similar one-piece fabric strap.
