    TROPIC RUBBER

    Hi

    I am looking at two black tropic rubber straps that i can wear with a 22mm lug Seiko Samurai and 20mm Scurfa Diver One.

    The problem i have is my wrist is about 6 inches and as i am in the UK i would prefer not to be hit with custom charges. Any tips on what i can get around the 35 pounds mark

    Many Thanks

    ZULUDIVER on Watchgecko has a solid design, and decent reviews from what I have read, though I do not own one personally. I recently bought a Hadley-Roma silicone strap with outlined stitching, and am very happy with it.

    I believe they also make different styles and may be worth a look - mine was $20 including shipping:

    Look at watchbandcenter.com in Germany.

    They carry a good inventory of smaller sized straps.

    Might also look at Watchbandit in the UK for another suggestion.

    Good luck.

    Just so you know i got a 20mm and 22mm Tropic Rubber from Watchgecko for about 25 pounds each. No complaints as they are they very good although the 22mm is perhaps a little too long. Are they made by bonetto cinturini?

    Also in case anybody wonders the Borealis Rubber Straps are excellent value for money.

    Speaking for tropic straps, I just ordered mine from a dude in Taiwan - looks identical to Uncle Seiko ones. Will provide feedback on those!

    The watchgecko version of the tropic rubber strap is very soft and pliable. I love mine.

    Dagaz Tropic Diamond strap, $30. Only 20mm though. Had mine 1 year, 6.75 wrist. It will fit you no bother. No import tax when I got mine; I live in the UK. Was here within 10 days. I like it a lot.[ATTACH=CONFIG]14225109

    I do not own Uncle seiko's, but I see no faults on this one.
