Hi.
I really like thè look of an everest rubber band for my sea dweller 16600.
Anyone have recommendations for other brands?
I just haven't managed to see an everest in the flesh only photos.

I bought one of these - https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/qTZd71w0

Couldn’t believe the quality for the price, it’s actually feels ok, it’s not a rubber B but come on it’s a 10th of the price.

Personally I’d pull the trigger on a Rubber B. They are stupidly expensive however they look epic and feel of quality. Look just right in my opinion. I use mine all the time on my submariner.

Looks like putting after sale wheels from Halfords on a posh car, but each to their own of course.

(Not that they sell wheels as far as I know, but you get my gist).

For me the sea dweller looks good on a rubber band as thats its natural element. It is a divers watch after all & i like the lower key less rolexy bling look.
Will check out these other options thnks

Ive a Rubber B strap somewhere , they suit the steel subs. They look great on the older models. Very comfy , very attractive and very pricey. Its hard to understand where the price goes , however vulcanized rubber it is.

I’ve used rubber b straps for a while, this one is on my dsdb, I have one for my sea dweller 43 and 2 subs aswell.
Great quality and at 250-275 they aren’t too bad price wise. Considering the value of the watches they go on.

Equally it saves wear and tear on the bracelets. So it’s win win

That looks really nice. Is it possible to change the strap yourself or does it need to go to a shop?
It would be nice to use the rubber strap for casual/work and then change to the SS one for more formal occasions.

Get yourself a decent spring bar tool and you can change as often as you like in a few seconds.

Will post phots of my other rubber b's when the jet lag has worn off

alot of the new seamasters are on rubber straps, think they look great!

A brand of rubber strap, originally for Rolex but now for other brands too.

Will ask here assuming the OP doesn’t mind and it is on topic...

Has anyone got any experience of Vanguard rubber straps?

Looked at them today and at £130 they are usefully cheaper than RubberB/Everest.

Seen one Youtube video suggesting it is better than both but keen to hear thoughts on here?

Do. The strap looks identical to the others and has a nice taper to it. The buckle is different and I’m not sure I like it as much as the other two though...

Although actually saying that is woeful.
