There are those who eagerly anticipate the complex high-end novelties currently on display at SIHH, and then there are those who find equal joy and excitement in a cool new watch strap for their G-SHOCK or diver.
Singapore based watch strap specialists Vario couldn’t find a 1-piece Cordura strap anywhere so they decided to go ahead and make one. They now offer a 1-piece Cordura (1000D for toughness) for 6-8 inch wrists and it looks great on your favorite diver or G-Shock. In fact, they were designed very much with G-Shock users in mind. The straps are 2mm thick, so they may not fit watches with short lugs though curved spring bars will help.
The straps have to be installed first before putting the spring bars on so the rivets won’t scratch your watch lugs if you try to pull through, a little fiddly, but the look is worth it.
Vario will also be making Cordura straps in 20/22/24mm for other watches.
There will also be a 2-piece Cordura with a leather strap from Vario but it’s still at the developmental stage.
