    Omega SHOM best rubber strap

    Was thinking of getting a rubber or similar strap for my SHOM always had it on NATO and tried mesh but never quite felt right.

    What's the best rubber or similar from folks exp?

    Hirsch Pure, a Breitling rubber, or Sinn are the best Imo.
    It's just a matter of time...

    Hi ! I know this is a few years old at least but wondering if you ever found the right rubber strap for your SHOM ? I am having the same difficulty. The one I wanted to use is too think at the joining point were strap meets watch case! Wondering if you had any luck? Best wishes. W

    Welcome to the forum!

    Over ten years since I had my SHOM, but I found the isofrane style worked.





    But it kinda cemented my dislike for rubber straps generally.



    I like it best on a Toshi leather (ignoring the dive v leather argument).

    My favourite for most divers is a sharkskin and the one I normally opt for is the DiModell. A very well made strap and robust enough for the heft of most divers. Somehow, at least to me, sharkskin avoids the 'leather on a diver' debate.

    How about a Tropic, a classic vintage dive strap

    Cheers,

    I would be inclined to put one of these on an EO / NDC type strap in keeping with its namesake and origins, failing that a nice iso strap would balance the head bulk
    They are a lovely looking watch.

    Rob - thanks so much for your speedy response! They both look great. did you by any chance ever try the one in picture? I think it would look good but the one style i tried didnt fit as was too wide at join point.
    looking forward to hearing. Best, W
