RubberB and Everest Straps

Recommended Posts

 

I am considering picking up a RubberB strap with buckle for my Explorer 2 and an Everest rubber strap with buckle for my coke GMT2.

Besides the insane pricing. .one thing that troubles me would be the strap length. I have smallish wrists at 6.5-6.75" and my wife who would occasionally wear the coke has got 5.5" wrists.

Will the everest or rubberB fit us?

I have broached this question to both manufacturers and got no reply at all?

My wrist is 175 MM or 6.9". I have 2 RubberB straps for my SubC. Some pictures for your reference. I am using the third hole from the watch lugs.

Below is the black alligator strap c/w SEL from Everest. Everest provided a stainless steel tank buckle but I switched the buckle for this which I bought online.

I have a RubberB on my Sub which I think has the same lug to lug length. My wrist is also 6.5" and I wear it with like 4 or so holes left to spare on the strap. So I'm guessing even your wife may be able to pull it off.

I have gotten another rubber strap from Everest which I did not mention in my previous post. Although I have this set of rubbers from Everest, I have yet to mount it on my SubC. This rubber strap (pictures attached) is the type where you need to use your own clasp buckle from your watch' bracelet unless you buy an additional one.

IMO - Our wrists (yours and mine) are similar in girth. Therefore, either the straps from both suppliers will fit you. And, may I add, my wife's wrist is only 5.3" or 135 MM. She wears the Blue SubC on the last hole. Well, it's a bit loose but still looks great.
