Rubber B has developed 7 stunning bracelets for the Patek Philippe 5980R-001.  Although there are two different shades of brown (Expresso & Chocolate) that can match the original crocodile leather band that came with the 5980R, there are several other color bands that can help make a statement.  The Rubber B bands are durable and able to withstand the rigors of an athletic lifestyle.  All Rubber B bands are manufactured in Switzerland from Vulcanized rubber.  No coating, blends or bonding is used in the manufacturing – ensuring long-lasting strength.
