Earl Grey Thanks Don,
I've got one coming.

Should suit my black H3 P6600 which is currently wearing a NATO, which is OK, but it has to be tight as the watch is heavy.

Thanks for the revoew! Does the ford-mercedes thing mean the isofrane will be in for repairs in 6 months? Or is this a pre-1996 mercedes?

Unless it stated that it was an Isofrane strap, either on the website, or in your packaging of the watch, it is not an Isofrane strap, but an Isofrane lookalike...which I have had with some watches, and while it is decent, if you put it next to a genuine Isofrane, it is no comparison.....
Hi Don, you are definitely correct; especially with the smell of the strap... definitely unique, soft while substantial.

Really, I think people really have difficulty absorbing the cost of a strap that is $100 or more considering the manufacturing cost is likely something significantly south of that.

I would believe that Isofrane thinks they have the market cornered with what is a trademarked design.

Only 200mm length? I've got an 8 1/4" wrist and that sounds a tad short. I'd hate to spend $100 for a rubber strap only to have to have the end barely tuck into the keeper.
It should fit fine!

These are the most comfortable rubber straps

Also remember they are based in Austria and use the euro and they ship FedEx and you receive the strap in a matter of a few days so the price looks better all the time.

You can spend that much or more on a Di-Modell or Hadley-Roma leather strap.

So It's the quality that you pay for.

its not your review , its the dam price ! it just plane cost to much, ya, it mite well be the best rubber strap in the world, but $100. im all about practiical,and things that feel good, but i think that isofrain profit / mark-up , is just to high ! its only rubber that came out of a mold, not a real expensive process, if ya think about it !
There is no denying that. You are paying a price for a great rubber strap because they can charge it. This is mainly because of their history, quality, and exclusivity.

It probably cost $10 to manufacture the strap. If you find another manufacturer or vendor that will sell exactly the same spec,quality and feel of the isofrane rubber at a much cheaper price, please let me know and I will jump on it. In the meantime, I'll keep buying isofranes.

Yeah, they are on top of the ball with that. They ship lighting fast, and it only takes like 2 or 3 days to arrive.
