    crown & buckle perlons: the only non-eulits that don't suck?

    Perlon is my strap of choice for summer. Everyone knows eulits are great but the colour selection is so limited. I've tried some other "perlons" (using quotes because I'm sceptical that anything other than eulit is actual perlon rather than nylon) but have found them all underwhelming:

    -cheapest nato straps: utter garbage which is where it ended up within 10 minutes of arrival
    -miltat: I got a couple of these for my 22mm watches and they are pretty terrible
    -semper straps: again, better colour choices but low quality

    This year I decided to pick up a couple of c&b's perlons to try and I'm pretty impressed so far. I really like the colours and the quality is outstanding. The only thing I would complain about vs. eulit is the buckle. It's quite sturdy but a little bulky vs. eulit. But otherwise, great straps!

    Here are some photos of the one I got for my dagaz thunderbolt. I got another for my mww rattler and will try to post more pics when I do that strap swap in a couple weeks. Oh and here's the link to the c&b page:

    Thanks for sharing. I've been curious as to how the C&B perlon stand up to Eulit.

    I got one from Cheapest Nato and when I received it I was thinking "This can't be what everyone is raving about, can it?!" Glad to see I have better options out there.

    The weave does look tight indeed. Very nice color too.
    Reminds me of a vintage 16mm Eulit on my Marathon.

    No pix handy, but I'll definitely give a thumbs up for C&B perlon.

    I guess I was spoiled--tried Eulit, then C&B, and at some point picked up some sale straps in wacky colors from WB in the same order with more Eulit. Damn, those cheap "perlon" straps are crap, compared to both Eulit and C&B. Rough, stiff material, poorly finished, and cheap, thin, stamped buckles that feel like they will bend or break in use. Cool colors, though...

    I was well pleased with the Perlon that I got from WatchGecko but after seeing yours it doesn’t really compare. Happen I’m missing out on something.

    Re: crown & buckle perlons: the only non-eulits that don't suck?

    Looks like there are 2 kinds of Perlons at C&B. the $16 ones are the ones shown, the $14 ones look like all other ones I've seen.

    FWIW, I tried a few Perlons as well. Clockwork synergy has some double perlons, which are quite nice actually. my only complaint is that the weave wasn't tight enough and eventually the "pin hole" would stretch out too much. still could get it tight, but I'd assume after extended use it would work itself too loose.

    but they were very comfortable and soft compared to the "regular" perlons I tried.

    Yes I ordered the "melange" type straps because they looked more interesting but the cheaper ones there are presumably good quality also, just a bit less interesting looking.

    Good to learn about a Eulit alternative. I have a Parma 2 piece on my Ray II, super comfy. The C&B 'linen' color looks very interesting.

    The C&B perlon straps are great. I don't have any other perlon straps because I'm satisfied with the C&B.
