  • By popular demand we are proud to present a vintage "Tropic" style genuine leather watch strap. Based on the sought after and rare rubber strap from the 1960's; our strap is made from high quality buffalo leather. Available in a number of colours, this strap gives the appearance of the rubber original with the comfort and feel of a genuine leather watch strap.

    Tropic straps were initially offered as cheaper alternatives to the standard metal bracelets on early Rolex and Tudor dive watches. As well as these, Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms and the original IWC Aquatimer also came with a Tropic strap to complement a stainless steel bracelet.
