The ZULUDIVER Kingsand Curved End Rubber Watch Strap (MKII) makes the ideal rubber watch strap for a Rolex
Traditionally I am a die-hard Bond user for my Rolex Explorer II, but late 2021 the ZULUDIVER team asked me to trial an early production model of a new watch strap which was collectively judged to be a bit of a ground-breaker. It was the ZULUDIVER Kingsand Curved End Rubber Watch Strap (MKII). Initial speculation that it would look superb on a Rolex proved to be correct. So much so, that the strap is still attached to my Rolex three months later.
The finish and fit around the case is excellent with the Kingsand bringing a totally different look to a tool-Rolex, or any dive watch, at a fabulous price. ZULUDIVER have absorbed the construction feedback regarding the first iteration of the strap and with the new MKII they have also upgraded the buckle to the ZULUDIVER premium range. The strap itself is made from high quality durable rubber, which has a smooth flat finish and a moulded, contoured, curve design.
I can positively report that the rubber becomes extremely supple after prolonged wear making it incredibly comfortable on my wrist, especially with a heavier watch. Measuring at 120/80mm (excluding buckle) the strap has a feature to hold the first keeper in place. The good news from the trial is that it also fitted the Rolex Explorer with standard straight spring bars, so no alterations were required.
Kingsand Strap Specifications:
- Length(s) - 125mm/80mm
- Thickness - 2.5mm/4mm
- Tongue width - 3mm
- Buckle and clasp - stainless steel
- Price - £34
Specifically, the Rolex rubber alternative strap market has been dominated by a few brands for many years. We all know the names and equally the high price of these products. The introduction of the ZULUDIVER Kingsand presents a new quality option, which can be fitted for a fraction of the price of the competitive models. Experience a Kingsand on your Rolex Explorer, Submariner or Seiko Prospex for a stunning alternative outdoor look.
