    Doxa on Bonetto 295 rubber?

    Anyone wearing your Doxa on a Bonetto Cinturini 295 rubber strap? Considering getting one myself and would appreciate some pictures!

    I guess I'll answer my own question then... The best and most comfortable rubber strap I've ever tried on my Doxa! And the list includes ISOFrane, Other Bonetto straps and various tropic straps. The only other straps that come close in comfort are the vintage tropic straps but those feel too fragile for daily use and diving. It has a nice taper too that looks super with the Doxa case and gives it a nice vintage touch.

    And some pictures...

    I like that! I'll have to give it a try. Looks vintage, like it is meant to be on it. I do like taper...I currently have mine on a TimeFactors two piece Deployant which I really like. Sometimes getting a new strap can be like getting a new watch!

    Yes, it does look great on the BC, (and the Timefactors too) but honestly, how could that watch, (or any Doxa) ever NOT look good???!

    Give it a go, you won't be disappointed! The rubber is a bit thinner than most other rubber straps I've tried which adds to the comfort of this band.

    those both look great! i'm also glad to hear that there are some comfortable rubber straps out there, my watches are typically on a bracelet, but the rubber one's i've tried have all been too stiff and uncomfortable. may have to look into one of these!

    The styling and build quality of the 295 is great, but I found it far too skinny to comfortably support anything over 42mm. It's a true vintage-style strap, so if you've got a period-correct vintage diver, go for it. I tried it on my 1500T, and found it laughably insufficient.

    It's true that any watch larger than the classic size Doxa Sub might feel a bit top heavy on a thin strap like the 295 but the conservative thickness of this strap is what makes it so comfortable. A perfect fit for the classic size Sub!

    I love the Iso, but they are a little thick for winter wear, will have to try the 295
