Watch Buying Guide

Earlier this month we had the chance to chat with the trio behind Austrian micro watch brand Sphaera Watch Co. about their exciting first release, the Desk Diver. Initially made available in Hesalite or Sapphire variations, the Desk Diver is the debut watch from the team at Sphaera who were united by a shared passion for adventure. You can read Neil’s review of the Desk Diver here.

Taking a quality over quantity approach, the production of Sphaera watches is capped at a quantity of approximately 300 watches per year. This does mean that the Desk Diver is now sold out, however the story doesn’t end there. Sphaera’s second collection, comprised of two Epoch models, is now available for purchase.

If you’re among the lucky ones to have gotten their hands on the debut Desk Diver, fresh out of its quirky “tuna can” packaging, or even someone who’s considering inviting the Epoch Classic Rusty or Epoch Sport references into their collection, read on to discover our best strap replacement picks.

Starting things off with one of our most popular leather options, the Original Vintage Highley is pretty much an instantly recognizable WatchGecko staple at this point. A bestseller for good reason, the Original Vintage Highley strap is meticulously crafted from sustainable leathers which have been oiled to age with grace and pick up characteristic patina over time. The Sphaera Desk Diver models are admittedly designed for adventure, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be smartened up for dressier occasions with the help of a timelessly classic leather strap option. Let’s call this your go-to strap for those everyday adventures.

If you’re after something stylish that still retains some of that adventurous edge, why not try our Vintage Tropical Style FKM Rubber Strap? Inspired by the iconic diving watches of the 1960’s, the Vintage Tropical strap is an effortless blend of functionality and sophistication. Just like the original tropic straps with their generous tapered tail, classic style keepers and a period accurate textured pattern, these modernized editions have been designed for comfort. With perforated vents carefully designed to allow airflow to the skin and easy water drainage, the Vintage Tropical strap is a great option for warmer climates and adventures that take you far from home.

Another modernized reworking of a vintage staple, our nylon straps are inspired by the military-issued straps of the 1970s. Designed to stand up to the rigors of military activity, our 1973 Warrior TerrainValor straps are constructed from a robust 1.5mm thick cotton weave to achieve a harmonious combination of sturdiness and flexibility for wearer comfort and a long service life. Offering a more breathable alternative to traditional metal or leather options, the 1973 British Military strap collection are a stylish yet robust addition to the Sphaera Desk Diver.

Our Braemore Military strap comes in a choice of four timeless military colours (marine blue, army green, national brown and space force grey) and has the appearance of those famed 1970’s military style straps but with the added comfort of a cotton canvas material. It appears neutrally in day-to-day life, from the office to dinner, but with its combat-military feel is more than capable of standing up to harsh environments and activities. Crafted as a one-piece construction, the Braemore strap goes wherever you do and ensures your watch remains securely on your wrist, even in the event of a spring bar failure.

Traditional, durable, easily interchangeable, and well-suited to sporting activities, the ZULU 1973 straps are a truly versatile replacement strap option and make adventure-proofing your Sphaera easy.
