Six Replacement Straps for the Omega Edizione Venezia Timepiece

If you look at most watches in the world, they have a metal lug (or bar) that keeps the leather wristwatch band in place.  There are many watches that have this kind of set up including low cost and high cost watch brands.  However not all bands that come with watches are made with the same kind of precision, materials and design excellence as the Rubber B replacement wristwatch bands.

Leather watchbands are extremely costly, develop odors, and experience deformation from perspiration. They crack and crease due the deteriorating nature of humid cardboard filler pad. A Rubber B Structure Series™ contains no filler pad: the leather surface fits crease-free and smoothly fused to the shapely rubber base for the entire life of the strap. The wearer no longer worries about the temperature rising, causing them to perspire, and ruin their leather strap. At the end of an active day, a Structure Series™ rubber base can simply be wiped clean with a damp cloth, avoiding any damage to the fine leather surface. No other leather watch bracelet can match the endurance of our Structure Series™ watchbands.

Another consideration when buying a replacement watch strap is making sure you can completely fit the metal lug.  This is why Rubber B has several lineups to fit the 22mm lug, the 20mm lug and the 18mm lug.

The Omega lineup of fine watches come with several models that will require the user to replace the leather strap after continued wear.  In fact, wearers might opt to change these bands immediately since these original bracelets provided by Omega are not as high quality or wearable as the Rubber B line of replacement watch bands.  For collectors of Omega watches, it is recommended to keep these original bands in a safe place untouched until attempting to resell the watch to a collector.  By purchasing a replacement band at the time of purchase, you preserve the original value of the watch, since the metal case of the watch will sustain wear and tear well over time, while the Omega original watch will not have longevity.
