Default New to me Crafter Blue for my SKX Pepsi

Just got my Navy Blue rubber from Crafter Blue today. First off I can't believe it was designed to NOT take the fat spring bars. Luckily I had some slim fatties. Fit isn't quite as good as the one for the Sumo imo (small gap at case), but works fine. Tapers to 20mm at the buckle. Extremely comfortable, soft, and flexible just like the one I have for my Blumo. Overall will be nice for beach and pool this summer.

Where did you get that strap? I need something like for my citizen chrono? It looks great on the SKX

Did a double check on the package and found CB did include the correct thinner spring bars, so my bad.

Honestly, I think you are the only one who is going to notice the "imperfections" you mentioned.

From your pics, this strap/watch pairing is a true KNOCKOUT!!!!!

Wear with pride!!!!!
