The TROPIC® strap is probably the most iconic of all rubber watch straps. The TROPIC® strap was a staple choice for dive watches back in the 1960s, and it’s now been recreated by Synchron Watches for today’s dive watch enthusiasts.

The new strap is a near identical reproduction of the original TROPIC® straps. The surface has the iconic crosshatched “tapestry” texture and diamond perforations that define the TROPIC®, with the perforations widening on the underside to improve airflow for the wearer.

The strap is made from a proprietary vulcanized rubber that’s designed to be both comfortable and durable. Meanwhile the buckle is made from solid stainless steel.

Key Features

  • Length: 125/85mm
  • A near-identical reproduction of the classic tropic dive watch strap from the 1960s & 1970s.
  • Perforated to improve breathability for the wearer.
