So I've just got this beautiful forrest green rubber strap, Bonetto Cinturini from Gnomon in Singapore.
I love it. Fresh new look and my first watch has feels like it's brand new again.
Ain't it sweet?!
But I'm just curious, about these Italian rubber Bonetto Cinturini straps everywhere.. Please can someone tell me, how do I know what is real and what is not? There is no brand stamp, on the rubber or the hardware, and I've seen them on ebay from St Korea and Lithuania and elsewhere, for quite cheap.
And of course watch gecko has their own colors and styles, seemingly made exactly the same as Bonetto Cinturini.
I can't buy these straps from Bonetto Cinturini themselves, tho they will send me their catalogue.
Should I be searching the Web in Italian to find a distributor? Or do B.C themselves just make all the rubber straps in the world this side of Hirsch?
What's the story?
