    Hi folks, I've a Black Monster I'm looking for a decent rubber strap, not really sure of the stock offering from Seiko. All thoughts much appreciated. Rocking it on a "dirty bond" nato just now.

    Check out Bonetto Cinturini straps on Holben's or other sites. I also have a Bonetto Cinturini rubber nato that I like. Got that one from Watchgecko if memory serves. BC makes really good rubber straps (not silicone) at reasonable prices.

    If you are Stateside, then yes, Holben's will be your best best. He ships fast as well. I ordered a BC-317 for my Zilla on the 21st and it arrived today.

    Ordered Eulit perlon from Holben's and it came most expeditiously. And while I've not ordered any BC straps, I've looked through their catalog. There's considerably more variation than I'd ever have thought! Quite a few I like. May just get a few, just to have on hand...next month. Blew the watch and accessories budget for this month already.

    Ah, I'm in the UK. I'm sure shipping costs will rule that one out.

    I'll second watchgecko. I believe they are UK-based too. And they have a standing 10% off coupon - watchuseek.

    Yah, for UK, I'd try WatchGecko. IIRC they do have a good selection of BC straps.

    I guess, Rubber straps is good idea, Silicone also looks trendy. A silicone bracelets with a dial embedded in it. It will definitely attract the people.

    Re: Rubber strap advice

    Original ISOfrane is by far the best rubber strap I've used, albeit a little thick. If you like the style, but a little hesitant to the price, Obris Morgan look-a-like might be worth a shot. I believe they even have a thread here on watchuseek. Bonetto Cinturini is also good if you want different style of strap. :)
