We are pleased to now carry the new Maratac™ silicone rubber deployment watch strap. These high quality silicone rubber straps are perfect for persons with latex rubber allergies. Besides having anti-allergy properties silicone rubber also is considered non-toxic and resistant to UV rays.
The stainless steel deployment buckles feature push button release and flip-lock clasp.
I bought this band for everyday wear of an IWC Pilots watch that came with a leather strap. The bank fits perfectly and looks great with the watch. The clasp makes it much easier to wear than the buckle type clasp.
I have been looking at this band for sometime now, and I wish that I would have got it sooner. I love it! Shipping was incredibly fast, Thanks CC
Silicone Rubber Deployment Watch Bands by Maratac ™
Bought two sets to have extra silicone material in case something went sideways. But they're both rugged and comfortable. Very tough material, e.g. does not stretch, so cut them bigger than you need (you should be able to slip your index finger under the closed strap. Do that and you'll have the best fitting strap ever.
Wore one of these for a couple of years until it finally started tearing at the clasp. To be fair, I abused the watch band quite a bit - the clasp itself was heavily scratched by the time the silicone part started to separate. It was one of the more comfortable bands I've had outside of a fine Milanese SS one, and very fast to put on as opposed to the buckle versions of silicone bands you can find on Amazon.
It also was very easy to trim to the correct size - just be sure to follow the directions on the site about where to trim and trim SLOWLY, one piece at a time.
If you think this style is for you, I'd buy two to have a backup - County Comm is fantastic but things do go out of stock over time.
