Thanks so much. Great pieces there - the white Aqua Terra is super for summer as well.Yes it’s the same. Just asked my AD this question as I have the rubber and was curious about adding an OEM leather for cooler weather or to dress it up a little.
I absolutely love the rubber strap though. It’s extremely comfortable and I like the look, especially with the metal pieces to integrate the look.
I've had the alligator strap for a few years, which has held up well. The rubber may just be better in the heat.
