Despite the arrival of sweaters and boots in some of the stores, we’ve got plenty of warm weather left in Texas. Did you know many brands offer watches with rubber straps?
While specifics vary from brand to brand, the benefits are the same:
Waterproof and Weatherproof
These kinds of benefits allow you to enjoy the water, the beach, and outdoor activities – you name it! And that’s why we love these watches for summer and beyond.
TAG Heuer and Breitling both use rubber for their straps. Luminox straps are made of polyurethane, and listed on their website as PU straps. Patek Philippe has a patented “tropical” composite strap on their popular Aquanaut series, and Rolex has the patented “Oysterflex” available on Yachtmasters and Daytonas.
Please note that the care is the same for all brands: always rinse off the watch after you’ve been in a pool or the ocean, or after a heavy workout. Never use harsh cleaning solvents that may cause more harm than good. Do use a gentle body or bath soap and warm water. Alcohol-based products and fragrances can also cause damage, so use these products before wearing your watch.
For those who love their precision timepieces and the great outdoors, stop by and take a look at some of the watches we carry that offer a rubber strap.
