No I am not a huge rubber guy either, although I own probably 10 rubber watches. But I truly understand why they are doing it. Very smart business move, if they can remove $30 out of every watch, then they will continue too cater to the people they are marketing. A lot of people on here and other boards complain about Invicta, but they are so F-ing smart during this down turn it is incredible!!

I do not like rubber straps on any watches regardless of the brand. The only watch I currently have on a rubber strap is my Orca, and I would swap that out in a second if I had the metal bracelet for it.

Oh trust me Rip, it's never been a question of their business savvy. They clearly know what they're doing.

I own 8 timepieces on rubber, but I would say that the majority of my collection is on SS bracelets. I think there are pros and cons to both rubber and SS. The rubber ones are nice because if I bang into a wall or door jamb it usually doesn't leave a mark on the band whereas with a SS it will surely leave a scratch, blemish or a dent. I think rubber is much more comfortable too. Now when it comes to looks the SS is my favorite hands down.

Yeah WG, I still kick myself for not getting on the Sea Vulture band wagon.....it was the rubber that stopped me but in retrospect I wish I would have pulled the trigger.

That's the only rubber strap watch I still wear. Get one, they are GREAT!

. . . I have never been a fan of rubber. Don't own anything on rubber. Even though some really high-end brands are using it, Ullyses Nardin et al, it has always seemed cheap to me . . . nothing to do with the comfort or feel. Give me metal or leather, or give me nothing . . .. :madd
