    I saw the Oris F1 Williams Team Rubber strap watch at a store and ever since then I've been thinking about getting a watch with a rubber strap. Are there any one's that you guys would recommend? Something all black or mostly black. I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to watches so need some advice.

    Thanks in advance!

    Every watch, with standard lugs, can have a rubber strap if you want to. Just buy a separate one and install it. I have many watches on rubber, that originaly came with a leather strap or a steel bracelet.

    This Oris look nice. But I wouldn't get it. Non-standard lugs are always a problem. Sooner or later you'll have to replace this rubber strap, and the only option will be to get a new one from Oris. No other will fit.
    Have a wonderful time...

    I would recommend the Tissot T-touch Trekking. That is if you don`t have a problem with quartz. I have one for almost 2 years, and have no problems.

    How about something from Deep Blue's Daynight line? Several different styles of Black PVD around $500. Automatic, has tritium lume tubes, and one of the coolest things is that the watches come with 3 straps - rubber, bracelet, and NATO included! I havent pulled the trigger yet myself, but I definitely want to add a watch with lume tubes to my collection and Deep Blue is a top contender!

    Bad way to pick your watches - by color. Would you pick a car by color? Girls do this and this is why Suzuki and similar car brands are still in business ;)

    Do some reading and pick a proper watch. There is this one, which has waterproof leather band, 500m water resistance, hard-coated against scratches and very, very well built.

    The 1st Rule of WUS Club is: No Pictures - No Help.
    The 2nd Rule of WUS Club is: No Pictures - It Didn't Happen.
    The 3rd Rule of WUS Club is: Read the rules on top of the page.

    How about the Mido All Dial Diver? The SS bits give a nice contrast to the black dial and rubber strap ...
