Rubber B VulChromatic Strap for Rolex GMT-Master II BLNR
The GMT-Master II BLNR, Reference 116710BLNR, is a favorite amongst Rolex enthusiasts worldwide due to its bold, sporty aesthetic. With a turn of its 24-hour ceramic bezel colored in black and blue, it allows the wearer to reference the time anywhere around the world. A GMT complication is useful for those who travel as part of their career. While one can still check the time on their smartphones, a wristwatch is much easier to check discretely during a business meeting.
In the Rubber B e-Boutique, we offer the ultimate rubber strap for the BLNR. Shown in the photo above, the Jet Black/Pacific Blue VulChromatic strap configuration is the perfect match for this wristwatch. Micro-callibrated using ‘blocked integration’ engineering, it creates a flawless mount onto the case with no gaps or movement. You also have the option of purchasing a strap that incorporates the Oysterlock clasp that comes with the GMT-Master II. The design and execution of our straps maintain the integrity of the timepiece, giving it a luxury look that can go with you on any adventure life may bring your way.
The freedom that a quality rubber strap configuration gives the wearer is unparalleled. Swiss made using the finest materials on the market, they will last for years without fading or losing their shape. We offer a variety of colors and styles for the Rolex GMT-Master II BLNR, including straps with a 316L tang buckle. Visit rubberb.com to browse our entire collection of straps for Rolex watches.

Rubber B Tuxedo Velour Straps for Rolex Midsize Models
With Rolex watches being featured in early James Bond films, the brand has been tied to the adventurous sophistication of the 007 franchise ever since. To honor the tradition of wearing a Rolex with a tuxedo, have created our Tuxedo Velour straps for watchmaker’s midsize models. Made in Switzerland from 100% vulcanized rubber, they offer a black tie aesthetic that is equally equipped to handle outdoor activities.
One of the advantages of a luxury rubber strap with a formal flair is that you don’t have to change your watchband to transition from casual settings to events like weddings or galas. You can go from shopping on the streets of Venice to a gondola ride to a fancy dinner in St. Mark’s Square without changing your wristwatch. The Tuxedo Velour strap looks particularly spectacular on the yellow gold Datejust 31 with fluted bezel shown above.
The combination of the old world charm of a classic gold Rolex and the versatility of a rubber strap creates the perfect configuration for anyone with luxury style and a desire for comfort. We offer Tuxedo Velour straps for Rolex Midsize and Ladies models, including the Oyster Perpetual 34 and 31, the Yacht-Master 35 and more. We offer versions for the OP 31 that incorporate the deployant clasp that comes with the watch in addition to a tang buckle version.
The Oyster Perpetual is Rolex’s most versatile and simple model. Bearing the name of two of the watchmaker’s most important innovations – the Oyster case and Perpetual rotor – it is available in several sizes and configurations. The Oyster Perpetual 31 is ideal for smaller wrist sizes and in our e-Boutique we offer several vulcanized rubber straps designed to fit this model precisely.
Made in Switzerland using only the finest quality materials and manufacturing practices, Rubber B straps are micro-callibrated to create a flush mount onto the Oyster case using “blocked integration” engineering. What results is a flawless fit with no gaps or movement between the strap and the watch case. For additional comfort and security, we offer straps that incorporate the deployant buckle that comes on the original bracelet. This creates a customized look that maintains the integrity of the original timepiece.

From Pink Flamingo to Sky Blue, Red Devil to Chocolate Brown, there is a strap color for everyone. If you don’t want to add color, you can check out the Jet Black and Arctic White straps shown in the photo above. To shop all of our straps for Rolex Oyster Perpetual 31, visit rubberb.com.
Rolex Oyster Middle Case in 904L Stainless Steel (photo: Rolex)
Over the past century, Rolex has achieved many milestones in watchmaking that have cemented the company as one of the leaders in luxury watch market. One of their most enduring innovations is the hermetically constructed Oyster case that was introduced in 1927. Consisting of a solid middle case, screw-down case back and friction-fitted crystal and bezel, the Oyster guarantees a depth rating of 100 meters on all models.
The middle case is stamped out of a solid block of 904L stainless steel or precious metal with the case back featuring the characteristic fluting that creates a tight seal. A special tool is required to remove the case back and access the movement inside. The sapphire crystal is mounted on a gasket and fitted against the flange of the case. It is then clamped tight by the bezel or a sealing ring.
After the case is constructed and the watch is completed, it undergoes stringent testing in-house before going out to dealers. They are immersed in water and subjected to pressure that is 10 percent greater than the pressure found at the guaranteed depth of the watch. This ensures quality control and allows the watchmaker to guarantee their products without concern about reliability after the watch leaves the manufacture.
The shape of the Oyster case is often imitated, but its construction is something that only Rolex can offer. This sturdy case has been around for longer than most of their iconic models and shows no signs of going away. Aside from the Cyclops lens, it is perhaps the most visible symbol of Rolex’s commitment to innovation in watchmaking. For more information on this and other features, visit rolex.com.
