Frequently asked questions
Is RUBBER B affiliated with Rolex, Panerai, Patek Philippe, Tudor, Audemars Piguet or any other watch brand?
No. RB is an independent company offering customized products in a non-official capacity to existing watch brands' official watches.
How are RUBBER B straps manufactured?
Unlike other companies who use deceptive "storefronts" in Switzerland that manufacture in Asia or elsewhere, Rubber B straps are always 100% manufactured in Switzerland by leading professionals in the watch industry, providing our clients with the luxury value they are purchasing. A Rubber B strap will always feature the mould marking "SWISS MADE" and will always reliably and flawlessly mount its intended watch.
RUBBER B does not contain any blends or coatings whatsoever. Solid inserts secure your watch pins within pure, smooth, vulcanized rubber. Our factory holds exclusive patents on the MOST SUPERIOR Level of Vulcanized Rubber in the world. This ensures comfort and endurance against cracking, separation, stretching, or dust attraction. RUBBER B straps will outlast and outperform any other product on the market, Rubber B straps maintain their vigor and develop a fine patina over time.
Does the RUBBER B strap mount the Deployant Clasp that came with my Rolex watch?
RUBBER B offers several types of straps for various watch models presented on our website. Once you have selected your watch type, you will be given the available choice, according to your particular watch. Our straps do not come with spring bars or pins, as you use your OEM bars.
- The classic series is custom designed to fit all aspects of your own original
Rolex deployant clasp, and does not come with a buckle or clasp.
- The tang buckle series comes complete with its own 316L Stainless Steel Tang Buckle.
- The Velcro® Series comes in sizes based on your wrist circumference.
- The Glidelock Series & SwimSkin® Integrated Series come in sizes based on your original Oyster bracelet link count.
Does the RUBBER B Strap come in different sizes?
If a size option is available, then you will see this option on the product page. Otherwise, the size is Universal, which means it has been strategically manufactured to fit the stated size range. (please check your watch model's detail page to see which size range works with yours, as they vary by case). Wrist sizes within the stated range will have a custom, tight fit.
Be careful not to shorten your new RUBBER B strap too much or damage it, as we will not be able to accept it for return/exchange once it has been altered.
Will I use links from my original Rolex bracelet for sizing reasons?
No. The Rubber B Classic Series and Glidelock Series are both designed to be fitted to your custom wrist size WITHOUT the use of any links from your original Rolex bracelet. The finished look only includes the watch head & clasp (some older Rolex clasps have a permanent half-link attached, which are apparent in the alt images).
How will I mount my new RUBBER B strap onto my watch?
You or any watch specialist can mount the strap very easily with a basic spring bar tool. A Rubber B strap mounts exactly the same as with other Rolex leather watchbands or metal bracelets directly to the clasp. For older model clasps with a riveted screw such as older Rolex Submariners, the RUBBER B will mount directly to the "half" link on the clasp.
Never touch or modify the riveted screws on your Rolex Clasp. RUBBER B is designed to respect and harmlessly mount your Rolex watch with no modification, as shown in our detailed images.
