Anyone have experience with aftermarket straps for a TT1? Mine came with the Oris rubber strap, but I would like to buy another strap to have options. Can I buy one from a company like Hirsch?

Got a toshi strap made for small seconds diver, great service loads of strap colours and stitching and handmade for about a 100 euro
Can you post a picture?

I'd be keen to see how it looks!

I know that you can buy adapters so u will be able to waer regular 24mm straps. But the adapters are like 26mm (i think) and the luggs are 24mm

I'm not that keen on bracelets or rubber on my daily wearers so I cut up an old baseball glove leather I had lying around. If you have one made the leather needs to be quite stiff because the over all width will be 24mm with only a 10 - 12mm piece attachment point. If the leather is not stiff it will lift at the edges and look meh.

You can try this guy on the bay for a custom made strap as well. Good luck

If the TT1's outside lug dimension is 26mm, you can buy an aftermarket Bell & Ross BR02 strap and then cut the inside portion down slightly to match the inner lug dimension of the TT1. HERE is a source for BR02 straps.

Since the leather seems to be a bit of an ordeal, does anyone have any good rubber straps, aftermarket or otherwise? The TT1 I bought has the oris black rubber strap, its just a hair too small for me and I am kinda stuck. I would rather have an Oris strap, but spending 200+ is iffy... or a nice aftermarket with a clasp that looks nice.

Thanks again for any help.

$200 is a good price for an OEM Oris rubber strap. My AD quoted me over $500 for a rubber strap with clasp for my Aquis Maldives. Complete rip off.
