    Does the Aviator now come on a rubber strap?

    I just ran across this pic on the 'bay. Does Ball now offer this strap in 22mm to fit the Aviator?

    That looks like exactly the same strap that I got for my EMII Diver Chronometer. If so, it's a 21mm Ball strap. Quite comfortable from the beginning. MSRP was $165 a few months ago.

    Yep! I've got the 21mm version of this strap on my "White Train" and used it on my EMII COSC diver too. It looks great, although it is a tad too short for a dive strap.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see this style strap on the 22mm-lugged Aviator. I wear my aviator on an aftermarket rubber strap and would love to have a Ball OEM rubber strap to fit it.

    Interesting!

    Unless the seller has been doing some photoshopping (a possibility, I admit), there is no doubt that the rubber strap in this picture is a 22m version of Ball's EMII COSC/Night Train 21mm strap. It doesn't look aftermarket.

    I agree with you 100%. I sent the picture to him when I emailed him earlier this afternoon.

    I still think it looks better on Buffalo strap especially with two rivets(one rivet on calf not so nice..)! We all know strap are not OEM by most of swiss watch company so it could be aftermarket strap but the "T-pin" bucket do resemble BALL bucket(seem in skylab calf strap) as view from the side of that T25 Aviator pic.
