The Sailcloth Story

The Sailcloth story began way back in 2019 at WatchGecko with a flat two-piece design, but due to customer feedback we later introduced a popular padded version, as well as various rally-style, perforated options. Fast forward to the present and our Sailcloth offerings are some of our most popular. Beloved by our customers thanks to their durability, versatility and timelessly stylish look, the Sailcloth strap collection has grown to encompass various designs.

From the popular Mayday range to the Maverick and the Typhoon, our sailcloth straps are built to last. Whether you are diving, hiking, running, or enjoying the day-to-day adventure, they are tough, secure, and ready to go where you do.

Multi-Layer Sailcloth

Our latest Sailcloth straps are made from a thick PVC sailcloth rubber which has been layered for durability, flexibility, and comfort. The premium PVC rubber is able to outperform all other sailcloth materials on the market which makes this a great choice for those seeking adventures in extreme environments.

Offering a unique ruggedness, the full remborde construction of our sailcloth straps is commonly mistaken for nylon or leather, so our Sailcloth collection really acts as a one-stop-shop for stylish strap alternatives.

Why we love Sailcloth:

  • Triple layered with high performance PVC rubber
  • Engineered for excellence with an unbeatable combination of rigorous function, comfort, and style
  • Equipped with quick-release bars for convenience in every move
  • Ready for anything with high abrasion resistance
  • Featherlight, waterproof design for any adventure
  • Rugged stainless-steel hardware

The Tudor Black Bay 58 surely needs no introduction by now. Having launched in 2020, the Black Bay 58 has since become one of the Swiss watchmaker’s most popular models. Considered by many as a must-have daily beater, you’ll need a strap fit for the everyday to work alongside it. Enter, the Mayday.

This original padded variation has led the way for a whole host of other Mayday variants (we’ll get to those in a moment) but is still a firm customer favourite, and for good reason. With the smarter looks of a leather strap and the functionality of rubber, the strap has been finished with a remborde edge to ensure it’s as tough and functional as it is stylish. A subtle solution for everyday wear, the Mayday Padded Sailcloth is a perfect contender for wear with the Tudor Black Bay 58, amongst other vintage-inspired models.

Next up, the Rolex Explorer II. Introduced back in the 50’s, the Explorer has held on to its infamous status as one of Rolex’s most popular watches. Teeming with vintage charm, the Explorer looks great when allowed to lean into its sportier side and that’s just one of the reasons it pairs so well with our Mayday Navigator Sailcloth strap.

This version of the Mayday comes with small, perforated holes for a subtly stylish edge that also works to drain water and allow air to ventilate the skin. Triple layered with a vegan-friendly Lorica lining, the Navigator exudes premium comfort for life on the go.

Now for a pop of colour. The outer stitching and matching Lorica lining of the Mayday Regatta comes in orange, red and blue. The subtle hint of colour contrasts nicely with a wide range of popular watches, particularly the Baltic Aquascaphe GMT with its orange and blue bezel.

The Mayday Regatta is no exception to the featherlight, waterproof, comfort you’d expect from our Mayday range and still comes with rugged stainless-steel hardware for a utilitarian touch. With its fusion of layers, the Regatta strap is incorporated with quick-release spring bars to ensure that securing your Baltic is fuss free.

Back to Tudor now and it’s the turn of the Black Bay GMT which pairs perfectly with our final Mayday offering, the Anchor. Bringing out some colour with red stitching and Lorica lining, our Anchor strap makes a bold statement with the Pepsi bezel of this Black Bay model.

With its perforations that ascend and descend in size, the Anchor offers classic style and functionality. It’s waterproof, just like your Tudor, and the top layer of black PVC rubber is adorned with an embossed sailcloth pattern as a mark of rugged style, and robust, abrasion-resistant finesse.

Last but not least, the Maverick MK11. Now, if you’re lucky enough to own the Seamaster 300, you’ll appreciate how truly versatile is. It’s one of those watches we lovingly refer to as a ‘strap monster’ as it’s more than capable of making any strap system look great. This can be a blessing and a curse though, as it can be hard to choose exactly which of the plentiful strap matches is the right one for you.

Bearing in mind the Seamaster’s blue ceramic bezel and white enamel diving scale, we’ve gone for a strap that leans into its aesthetic like they were made to go hand in hand. With its subtle pop of colour, the blue ZULUDIVER Maverick (MKII) is a sophisticated yet functional choice that perfectly complements the colourway of the Seamaster. Presented with waterproof rubber that has been moulded to look like sailcloth, this strap features medium padding for guaranteed lightweight comfort.

Offered with our upgraded Sub-Aquatic saltwater resistant 316L stainless-steel buckle, the Maverick (MKII) is ready to go the distance, straight into the depths with your Seamaster.

So, there you have it…

Some of our most loved watches, and a premium sailcloth replacement strap to go with each one. You can view the whole collection here. Let us know down in the comments which combination you might be ready to try next!
