Im currently in the market to buy a fitted rubber strap for my Seamaster Pro Ceramic. I think a rubber strap would give the watch a sportier look and be a nice change of pace compared to the Bond bracelet. I was just wondering if there are any other (less expensive) options than to purchase a second hand Omega 98000085 strap? The Omega straps are priced astronomically high since being discontinued for the Seamaster. I've also read that the Rubber B straps for the SubC "fit" the Seamaster, but is not a perfect fit. I would prefer something that is made directly for the SMPc. What are my options? Pictures would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for the reply! I'm not a huge fan of the isofrane styling. I was hoping for a strap that is fitted to the SMP case, instead of just straight across the lugs. The Rolex Sub seems to have a lot more options out there.

I think rubber straps from the 42mm Planet Ocean would fit with curved springbars

Thanks! I was at the Omega Boutique a few days ago and the technician told me they wouldn't fit...maybe he didn't want to be bothered. Are you referencing the 2500 or 8500 42mm Planet Oceans?

Ok cool thanks again. I'll look into the PO straps. I guess the used market is the best place to find them. The OB charges a pretty penny for their straps. Does anybody know of any other options out there?
