    Rubber/Leather Inlay Straps?

    I love rubber straps that have a leather inlay, like this from the IWC Ingenieur...

    Is there an affordable aftermarket option? I've never seen one.

    A Hirsch Robby strap does not have an inlay, but does incorporate a rubber base into the strap, for one suggestion.

    ... to add to that, the entire "Hirsch Performance Series" which the Robby is a part of, has all different types of material inlaid into rubber. Not exactly like the IWC, but some of the nicest quality straps around. It may seem counter-intuitive if you live in the states, but the best source for this line of straps in WatchObsession in the UK:

    Actually a better match would be their Paul line. These are quite beautiful.
