20mm Hybrid Rubber Strap for C60 Sapphire

Post by richard.gorton »

Hi,

I'm new to the forum and have done my best to find answer to this question so apologies I haven't been able to find an answer- this is my first post too so be gentle with me if this question has been covered before.

I've just ordered the new C60 Sapphire and as well as the metal bracelet I've ordered an additional strap, the 20mm blue/ orange hybrid rubber strap. I'm not a fan of pin buckles so I want to replace it with a deployment buckle but whilst the lug end is 20mm I can't find the width of the buckle end, so I can order the right clasp. If anyone has this strap I'd be really grateful if you could let me know the width.

Thanks again, I'm a big watch fan and for years have debated whether to get a Christopher Ward, so my first one is on its way! :D

Richard

Welcome to the forum Richard and congrats on the Sapphire :thumbup:

I briefly had a 40mm GMT in my possesion and I'm 99% certain it tapered.
IIRC, from 20mm at the lugs to 18mm at the buckle.

If I'm wrong, somebody please correct me.

Thanks Ryan, I would expect it to taper but wanted to be sure before I bought the clasp. My watch isn't being delivered until mid July so I'm hoping to find out so I can have the clasp ready. I'd guess at 18mm too but wondered if anyone had bought the strap and could tell me. I've emailed Christopher Ward too so will update this thread if they come back to me in the meantime.
Thanks, all the best
Richard

You're on the right tack, Ryan.

20mm hybrid strap will taper to 18mm.

Thank you Guy, and Ryan for the fast responses, I like this forum and great to feel part of this community. I have a feeling my C60 Sapphire won't be my only Christopher Ward watch :)

Thanks for your help,
Richard

Hi Richard,
Like you, I really prefer a deployant to a buckle, and have often swapped them over. I don't know which type of clasp you are intending to fit, but the CW Bader clasp also has a limit on the thickness of the strap at about 3mm I think. If you're intending to use the CW one, the hybrid strap may be too thick.

Maybe others could advise, I've not tried it.
There's always time for one more.

Hi Paul,

I have seen quite a few good options at Watch Obsession and they do allow for varying thicknesses, there's plenty that seem to suit the 3mm thickness.
I'll let you know how I get on, thanks again for the comments.
Richard
