THE HISTORIC TROPIC STRAP
The symbol of deep sea exploration from the beginning of the 1960’s through the end of the 1970’s, the Tropic strap has equipped the most legendary dive watches. It is indeed the official strap of the earliest Rolex Submariner, Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, and Jaeger LeCoultre Memovox Deep Sea. Its distinctive design was also the privileged companion of the “Skindivers” of this remarkable period.
Created with natural rubber, the characteristics of the strap remain intact under water making it particularly suitable for scuba diving. Its size does not budge, neither does its technical resistance. The strap will stay free from odours and humidity: features that it alone mastered during the 1960’s.
Available in 20 mm
OUR VERSION IN NATURAL RUBBER
Like its predecessor from the 1960’s, the Joseph Bonnie Tropic strap is made of vulcanised natural rubber. A process using high temperatures where sulfur is incorporated into rubber to modify its structure.
Vulcanisation makes the rubber more resistant while retaining suppleness. It also gives the material a lustrous sheen that immediately distinguishes it from silicone reproductions.
WHY DO WE LIKE IT SO MUCH?
Because it is not just a simple sports strap.
Unlike most other rubber and silicone versions today, the quality, engineering, and minute details of our Tropic strap make it as comfortable underwater as it is above it.
It will easily enhance the presence of a variety of watch case thickness with its one-of-a-kind retro touch.
Now available in 6 amazing colors, the JOSEPH BONNIE TROPIC strap can be worn either with a large keeper or two smaller ones. 2 original designs from the sixties.
Clearly, this Tropic strap is ideal with any dive watch, from the most legendary and historical to the lesser known ones.
It also works very well on chronographs, sports watches, and a variety of other models.
