Ok the Orbis Morgan Rubber Strap finally arrived today and immediately threw it on my Steinhart Smurf.

What can I say, for $18 delivered it is outstanding, it is fairly soft and pliable right out of the package, the length is perfect for my 8” wrist and only had to use one retainer.
It wears very comfortably, my wife likes it’s looks great.The only draw back is, it doesn’t smell like vanilla to me, smells more like Hoppe’s gun cleaning solution, which isn’t a bad thing if you are a shooter.


I think I am going to order an orange one for this Orient.

I'm wondering if it will work for my 6.5" wrist. Looks sweet for $18!

I wonder how many people have emailed OM asking for 24mm. It's time ! The watch community need those 24's :)

Whoa, that looks phenomenal Chazman ! :eek: Haven't seen this combination before with this watch, but boy oh boy, it is outstanding ! ..It's amazing how different a new strap can make a watch. The color, but also style give the Smurf more of a sporty tool feel. :smileyface_hand_cla Nice job here sir. Keep on enjoying this one, and this combo !!! Congratulations !

That strap on the Steinhart looks good! I've been on the fence on ordering one and now I'm about to leap for another one.

I got one for my SKX179 and fell in love with them. Excellent straps, I can't believe they are not more expensive. I had to order a few more.

Anyone know of Obris-franes have

1) a sweet scent to them.

2) no static dust issues?

I used to have an Armida frane that was totally awesome for the price........robust, sweet scent, and no static issues like some other iso-frane like straps........

Anyone know about the Benarus - frane straps?

Some of the obris have a vanilla scent. The one I have does. Some have a slight tire scent though they have said they improved this.

Benarus strap is just like the Armida in my opinion.

All of them including the obris do not attract dirt or lint.
