  • Carefully considered details, like the distinctive buckle and ladder-style – La Scala – strap holes distinguish this high-performance mix of ZULUDIVER specification and Bonetto Cinturini strap expertise.

    For decades, Bonetto Cinturini has specialised in making high quality rubber watch straps. Since the 1980s, they’ve consistently met the functional needs of divers, swimmers, other athletes and discerning leisure wearers. They’re even made in the same factory as many luxury brands’ OEM straps!

    A broader buckle tang and distinctive strap holes

    Your ZULUDIVER 281 is no exception. It’s another practical range, distinguished by a broader buckle tang, distinctive ladder-pattern strap holes and circular ventilating apertures next to the mounting points. As you expect with ZULUDIVER, this is a serious dive strap that’s strong, supple, waterproof, saltwater and ultraviolet-A (UVA) resistant.

    Like all our Benetto Cinturini straps, this one combines durable NBR (not lint and dust-attracting silicone) with contrasting stainless steel hardware. The buckle is signed with the ZULUDIVER logo as a reminder of its provenance. A colour-matched box-section keeper echoes the strap’s elongated laser-incised strap holes.

    A great wear with or without a wetsuit

    The result? Another supremely comfortable, high quality rubber watch strap in 20 mm and 22 mm widths that looks great as well as performing beautifully whether you are wearing a wet suit or not.

    All for a fraction of the price of similar OEM straps made for luxury brands. So add the ZULUDIVER 12-month guarantee to Bonetto Cinturini’s impressive reputation, order yours with confidence and get in the water.

  • Needs more chunk


    Needs two keepers as many of the other reviewers have said. Looks ok but I expected it to look a bit chunkier if I'm honest, particularly the buckle which looks a little cheap. Fitted on my Omega Planet Ocean 45.5mm it looks ok but as I said lacks girth.

    Do not buy this strap. Soft, but horrible fit.


    Do not buy this strap.

    The buckle won't lay flat, and is in a weird position. The metal piece on the buckle doesn't stay on the buckle and stands up. The strap only has one piece to hold the strap in place, and it's clear that it really needs two pieces to keep the rubber strap in place, and flat.

    All of these problems combined gives a really bad fit around my wrist, and I can't use it at all. I've been happy with straps from you earlier, and this rubber strap was a big disappointment.

    Customer support won't answer mails.

    Great strap, just loses color


    Bought the strap for my Orient diver. I like how 6 months later it still smells like vanilla. Very smooth and comfortable rubber on the wrist. The ladder wholes make sizing nice and easy for in between sizes. Unfortunately I got the orange and it got dirty and never went back to being shiny. Other than that it’s a good strap.

    Nice strap


    Bought this strap in red for my SEIKO SKX009 and it's definitely a good combo. Rubber is soft and very nice to wear and it has a nice vanilla scent to it. I would however agree with previous reviews that a second keeper would have been nice as the strap is quite long, including the buckle 9,4 + 13,7 cm.

    Nice fit, but weak spring bars and discolouration


    Got a red one of these for my daily wear Seiko diver. The strap discoloured very quickly and looked dirty. No matter what i tried it would not clean back to its original colour



    Fully agree with the first comment - definitely needs two keepers, it’s simply two long unless you’re wearing a wet suit

    ZD missed the mark for the lack of a keeper!


    This could be a five star, however it fall short in my opinion simple because it needs two keeper otherwise you're constantly adjusting the strap, at this price point ZD went cheap which is unfortunate

    Great strap but DON'T get an orange


    The strap is great got a second one in orange just a week ago and problems already it got extremely dirty really quick amd I can't get the dirt out

    great strap at fair price


    This is a wonderful strap. It is a little thin, so I wouldn't pair it with a heavy watch, but it works very well for my titanium watches. The scent is a bit strong at first, but it is slowly fading...either way better then the rubber tire smell of some of the other brands I've had. The gray is a nice color not usually seen.

    Excellent strap


    This strap is truly a master piece i love the fact that it mimics the ocean racer rubber strap on the breitling.
    I got rid of my isofrane when i got it and ended up buying the Obris iso (was missing the style).
    But this bonetto is excelent it fits over my 7mm wetsuit and 2mm gloves (9mm of neoprene) without a problem which is important for me.
    Got it in may and wore it all the time and still smells like vanilla.

    Five Stars


    Brilliant strap

    Top Dive Strap.


    Excellent strap. Bought for my Orient Mako Pepsi to replace the steel bracelet and I love it. I swim with the watch 3 times a week and this strap is both light and secure.

    Very soft, very comfortable and the design with multiple holes means it's well vented on hot days.

    Looks great too. Bargain for the price. Highly recommended for sports and diver watches.

High quality for over 30 years

Your ZULUDIVER diver's watch strap is made to Bonetto Cinturini’s usual high standards. You wouldn’t expect anything less from the Italian firm that's created high quality rubber straps for diving, swimming, athletics and leisure wear since the 1980s.

Strong, yet super-pliable

Add the strength of vulcanised nitrile-butadeine rubber (NBR) to this waterproof, saltwater and UVA-resistance and you have the ultimate diver's watch strap. It’s made in the same Veneto-region factory that makes rubber straps for Switzerland’s luxury watch brands!

ZULUDIVER Divers Straps

The kind of divers’ straps we like to wear

Our ZULUDIVER brand grew out of our commitment to create a range of high quality, yet affordable, diving and outdoor watch straps. So we designed and specified the kind of straps that we like to wear while adventuring on land or sea, or just relaxing with friends. And of course, they’re available in a wide range of bright colours and designs.

British brand: Italian heritage

We’ve always recognised Italy’s traditional expertise in rubber watch straps. So it was logical to work closely with respected Italian manufacturer Bonetto Cinturini (based at Vicenza, near Venice on Italy’s Adriatic coast) to develop our fully-waterproof, genuine rubber watch straps.

Our spec: from the same factories as top-brands

Since the 1980s, Bonetto Cinturini have crafted superb rubber dive watch straps for some of Switzerland’s top luxury brands. The same factories now manufacture straps to our exclusive specifications – so we can harness their passion and expertise for your wearing pleasure.
