Vintage Leather "Tropic" Watch Strap by Geckota
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 vegetable tanned Genuine Italian leather. Available in 4 colours, this strap gives the appearance of the rubber original with the comfort and feel of a genuine leather.
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.
The strap's width reduces by 4mm at the buckle (20mm lug is 16mm at the buckle).
This strap also features a solid polished stainless steel buckle with solid tongue and has been lined with soft nubuck.
