    Seiko skx007 Hirsh rubber and leather straps.

    Hey everyone. Starting off, gotta say I love the skx to bits. Heard lots about it and finally gave in. Although the stock Jubilee strap doesnt really feel good to me.

    I went to a bunch of different stores and took a liking to a couple of rubber and leather mix Hirsch straps (rubber underneath and leather on top). The manager told me it's a relatively new thing and couldn't attest to the longevity of them. They felt nice when I held them
    but do you guys have any opinions about them. Comfort? Quality? Looks? Also added three pictures, which one looks the best? Interested to hear.

    I like the first one. If you want a better jubilee, check Strapcode. They make jubilees and oysters for the SKX.

    I have a couple of Hirsch Robbys.

    Thanks for the tip. Been looking at the Super oyster but want something lighter aswell. The color matching on that monster is really sweet. Is it only rubber or a mix of materials?

    And how is the feeling on the wrist after wearing it for couple of hours? Think the inside is the same pattern as the ones i found.

    The brown looks great but I am a "Brown strap on anything looks good".
    I like the idea of a rubber layer. It would be anti-slip and wouldn't absorb your skin oils.
    On the idea of it lasting longer, leather straps are organic. They will stretch, be affected by moisture, and will eventually wear out. Treating them with leather conditioners/creams/water proofing will pro-long the life. The rubber will help prevent some of this.
