    Best Orange Rubber strap for PO8500

    I know there are lots of threads with various straps on various watches, however many dont actually state which brand of strap it is.

    I am looking for a good orange rubber strap for my Planet Ocean 8500 (42mm).

    I know there are lots of $30 straps out there but I dont love the idea of a strap that may tear etc, so I am looking for a high quality strap, similar to the Everest straps on the Rolex. (I assume the curved end Everest wont fit the PO?).

    Any recommendations for a good 20mm orange rubber strap under say $200, ideally with the curved ends to look closer to the OEM - but not a deal breaker. I am thinking maybe a Hirsch Pure if I dont get any better suggestions.

    Thanks!

    I'm following because I'm looking for suggestions too.

    For now, I use Hirsch Accent, Robby, and Ayrton. All are water resistant. When I'm using sunscreen or oil, I love my Isofrane.

    Surely you can pick up the OEM orange strap for $200 or thereabouts? It's £175 in the UK if I rcall correctly. Looks amazing too. I've had the 8500 OEM rubber on my PO for 5 years now and still looks and works as good as new and I've swam, ran, cycled and skydived with it.

    Not a full rubber strap however the Hirsch Robby is a combination rubber/leather strap. I like it a lot and I get a lot of compliments on it when people see it.

    How about this? Omega OEM strap for PO 2500 but it will certainly fit the 8500.

    I am letting it go (on the sales forum) well below $200.

    PM if you are interested

    Hirsch do some great high quality straps. Any of the "performance" range will suit your PO. I had one on a dive watch a few years ago and theyre very tough. From memory the OEM rubber requires the deployant clasp doesnt it? In which case the £200 price quoted here will jump closer to £400. I think most Omega clasps run around £200 but theyre great clasps.

    Borealis makes a fun rubber strap which I have on my Orange PO8500 in the summer. And they are below $30.
