Hey lads

I'm looking for this gator strap (new ones have the rubber lining at the back so it's semi-water proof). Any recommendations (or any AD's that ship across to California?) that has decent pricing?

Cheers!

OB always quotes me a slightly better number than a AD. Just short of going used, that's about as good as it gets.

Jared used to take coupons on Omega accessories, but noticed they were added to the exclusion list a few years ago.

^ Nice strap. Prob is non OEM straps are not curved and the PO is 16mm thick. The OEM rubber/leather are both curved to give it a flush look on the PO.
I guess if I can find a custom strapmaker who's got a OEM strap and can do a custom.

I checked out some custom straps but man, at $200 + for customs, you are better off with getting OEM straps as most AD's do warranty straps (at least for a year) . Plus Omega is now using rubber backend on their gator straps. I think I'll just keep an eye out in the FS section for pre-owned oem straps. Cheers !

Some customs are more expensive yes. But in many cases they are better than OEM. You get what you pay for at the higher ends.

I’m hunting for a strap with two functions: First for my Aqua Terra 150, second for the FOIS - both at 19mm lug widths.

I asked around for the Omega rubber strap OEM part number, but all I got back was the sound of crickets.

Thank you @Michael Day ; you have been helpful and it is appreciated.

nimzo,

I'm not sure which rubber strap you were enquiring about, but a quick Google search turned up these part numbers:

98000416 - OMEGA OEM Rubber Strap 19mm
94521873 - OMEGA OEM Deployant 18mm

This rubber strap had Speedmaster embossed on the back of the strap. Not sure if that's what you want.

Anyway, I hope this helps you with your search.

René

They will also curve. I prefer without.
