C40 with C700 silicon strap

Post by triffidman »

Comments welcome - the photos speak for themselves. Much prefer this to the leather C40 strap though, as it gives it more 'beef'!!

Interesting and OK but I still prefer mine on the black alligator strap.

Yes, I like it on the alligator strap - very classy. Am I right in thinking that's the CW 'true' alligator strap, or is it similar to straps on the C60 for example? In their strap section, they don't have any 22mm alligators at the moment :( which is a shame.

It is a proper CWL C40 alligator strap. Hence it is shaped to the case.

Rubber on a non divers watch, that must be a fetish. :lol:

Prefer the steel bracelet myself. :D

The word "Rubber" sounds pervy in some contexts - "Silicon Strap" on the other hand.....hold on a minute, that sounds even worse! But it's not a fetish of mine I promise, but it's even more unique amongst friends now which I like.

Worth the £35 that CW charge for it though, it's such a solid feeling strap and buckle. They never disappoint do they.

A lot more 'beef'. Those keepers could probably restrain a cow!

I like the pattern on the strap, but it's the thickness of it, that you obviously like, that dampens my enthusiasm. What I do like is seeing watches on different straps - it helps me get ideas. Thanks!

Although I like the look of this silicon strap, I prefer the leather or the bracelet on the C40.

Looks sharp, and the same thing that turns Dom off is exactly what I like about it. A thick rubber (silicon) strap that has the same wrist presence as a chunky leather. The C40 is a thick case, the thick strap works well with it, and gives it a distinct look from other silicon straps.

I love alternating straps and thank you for the idea! I might grab a silicon pattern leather strap with red stitches for my c40 8)

Though I have to say, it is ultimately a bracelet watch.
