Back to Switzerland in the 60s
When the makers of the greatest dive watches needed a rubber strap in the 60s and 70s.
Sometimes the simplest design is the best…
When dive strap debuted in the early 60s, it has quite literally changed the shape of diving -
or at least the shape of dive straps! Before, dive watch straps were usually made from rubber.
They were sticky, uncomfortable and would often blister and crack when often exposed to the
sun salt and cold. These straps were even harder on the divers wearing them. Without ventilation,
the skin didn’t breath. The strap changed all of that.
Our original straps were manufactured using a compound called isoprene. And just what is isoprene?
Isoprene is a, liquid hydrocarbon that is obtained in the processing of petroleum and is used as a raw,
chemical material. Isoprene was far more durable, and maintained its look.
We used our old recipe, made it non-allergic, non-toxic and added even more durability and softness to
rubber WITHOUT using silicon (the dust magnet) to bring back the forgotten dive watch strap, which is
probably the best watch strap you’ll ever buy.
