Description

THE LEGEND OF THE TROPIC

There are hundreds of rubber strap models and styles, but through the years, there’s only been one strap that is known by its brand name, the TROPIC® strap. Once standard issue for the world’s most iconic dive watches throughout the sixties and seventies, the TROPIC® name is back to dive again, using a new and proprietary vulcanized rubber formula optimized to deliver unmatched wearer comfort and quality. Like the original, the new Genuine TROPIC® strap shares the same design elements, adhering to the textured ‘tapestry’ surface that made the original a beloved, multi-generational icon. Its deeply embossed back, and tapered shape are designed to increase wearer comfort, while the strap’s ends are uniquely shaped to create a seamless transition between case, lugs and strap.

    I have a Citizen dive watch with 2mm spring bars. Can the Tropic strap be used over 2mm thick spring bars? If not, do you have spring bars that will fit with ends (that go into the lugs) around 1.18-1.19mm thick?

  4. Sam Kaddoura (verified owner)

    How thick is the strap please

  5. kim Hurup

    Any chance for a 23mm tapering to 20mm an the buckle end? Would be a perfect match for my Blancpain Fifty Fathoms.
    Best regards from Sweden
    Kim

  6. Ted Plyler

    Are springbars included? If not what diameter is recommended?

  7. Paul

    The newsletter shows that only 3 colors (black, blue and green) are available. But the ordering page has total 6 color options. Are brown, orange and yellow straps in stock now? Thanks.

    • Synchron Store Admin

      All 5 colors are available in 20mm

  8. Blain

    Will you consider producing shorter straps in the future? It’s impossible to find a properly sized rubber strap for people with smaller wrists these days.

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Hi, all 6 listed colors are available, black, brown, NATO green, chocolate brown, orange and yellow

    • Luis G

      I would also be interested in a shorter length version as well! A 70- 105 or 70-110 would be awesome!

  9. David

    Please make 18 or 19 mm, for us vintage watch guys. Thx

  10. emui

    23 mm available pls? thank you!

  11. RW

    Another request here for a shorter version, thanks.

  12. Paul

    Will there be an 18mm version?

  13. Martin Issing

    Please make this available in 19mm lug width to fir all the vintage dive watches out there.

  14. D.L.

    Please let me know when you release the 22mm version of the tropic rubber strap in black.

  15. GH

    Hi. Will 19mm eventually be available?

  16. Andre (verified owner)

    How about 24mm? At least in black.

  17. Fel

    beautiful strap in size 22 and with holes in the handles for the Seiko fat spring bar? thank you and greetings

  18. Fel

    beautiful strap will there be the possibility to have it for spring bar fat Seiko? good day

  19. Ramón

    Hi. In the 22 mm strap, what is the measure of the part that goes in the loop? Thank you.

  20. Zach Phillips (verified owner)

    Any chance there will be a 19mm version someday, at least in black?

  21. Tim

    What is the maximum spring bar thickness (mm) that will fit through these? 1.5, 2.0, 2.5? Thanks!

  22. Engi

    Hello, please those Tropic straps, if purchased in Europe, are shipped from Europe ? Is the price available in euro ?

  23. Ray

    A shorter version would be ideal, as well as a traditional buckle that would also prevent keeper from sliding out.

  24. Vincent

    Like numerous others, I request as well a “short length” strap for those of us with smaller wrists. Thank you.

    • Synchron Store Admin

      The shorter strap is currently in the works, thank you for your feedback

  25. John

    Thanks for the prompt reply. 85 mm shorter part is still too long for those sub-7″ wrist. I appreciate the effort anyway. If you could offer 70 X 105, I bet you will have a more orders online.

    • JP

      I agree, 85mm is too long. 70mm or 75mm would be much better.

      Will the shorter straps be offered in the 22mm version too? I find shorter 22mm rubber straps impossible to find.

      Thank you.

  26. Brian

    What will the 22mm version taper to at the buckle? Will it have the same 4mm taper (e.g., 22mm –> 18mm)?

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Yes, the 22mm strap will taper to 18mm

  27. Lif

    Hi,
    Will you ship to Europe, to France more specifically? Do they fit to Seiko 2.5mm spring bars?

  28. pokey074

    Does this come with spring bars? What size fits?

  29. Raoul

    Add me to the long list of people looking for a shorter strap.

  30. Josh

    Will the 20mm fit the Seiko 6105 Diver? It takes 19mm, but wonder if it would squeeze.

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Hi Josh, yes, it will fit well

  31. Hesten

    Can’t wait for the 22mm in nato green 😀

    • Synchron Store Admin

      coming soon

  32. Rick B.

    Will you be making 21mm as well as quick release rubber straps similar to Farer and Chris Ward?

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Hi, no plans for a 21mm strap because 22mm straps fit very well on 21 lugged watches, but probably for a quick release option

  33. shamim

    i am thinking of using this with Rolex batman 116710BLNR , will it be compatible?

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Yes, the 116710BLNR has 20mm lugs and the 20mm Tropic should fit

  34. John Babel

    Will any of your bands fit the Oris Maldives Limited edition? Band is not straight across, but rather is notched smaller in middle of band – pin runs through the notched part of band)

    • Synchron Store Admin

      No, the Oris Maldives needs a proprietary strap

  35. Andy Parker (verified owner)

    Will you be offering 19mm options, please? If so, could you provide a timescale for these? Thanks.

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Hi, not on the short term plan, the 20mm will fit perfectly on 20mm lugs, try it out free and you will see

  36. Frederik Dalum

    Hello,

    Will there be a 22 mm green available? One for the Seiko SKX series.

    Thank you very much,
    Frederik

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Yes, all 20mm colors will be availble

  37. D.L.

    which width of your tropic strap would fit on a 21mm lug to lug watch, given that you have a 20mm and soon a 22mm width?

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Hi, the 22mm will fit well

  38. michael.burch13 (verified owner)

    Love the new Tropic strap. The material is more supple, not unlike the ISOfrane and very comfortable against the wrist. I also appreciate that it comes with two strap keepers. Use them both or safekeep one for the future. I hope you have plans for a white as well as other colors? Thanks and keep up the good works!

  39. Oliver

    Do you have a date when the 22mm tropic will be on sale?

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Hi, coming December 2019

  40. tony

    22mm Blue Strap – when can we expect it to be release?

  46. Steve

    Need 22mm. Anytime soon?

  49. LEE RAPPEPORT

    What’s the problem with making 22 & 24mm straps…..

    • Synchron Store Admin

      There is absolutely no problem making more sizes, they are in the works

  50. PF (verified owner)

    When can we expect the release of 22 mm/24 mm straps and are other types of tropic (for example, the racing type with large holes) in the works as well?

  51. VT

    Will you make shorter lengths? 205mm will be too long to me. Thanks

  52. Thomas

    Got a solid date when the short version of the tropic is ready??

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Hi Thomas, not yet, it will probably be February 2020

  53. Johnny

    Would really like to see some curved end straps. What differentiates these from the many other interpretations currently available? These look to be thicker than the originals also.
    Any plan for Tropic Sport and Tropic Star in the future?

  54. scott

    Hello…would February 2020 also be the aprox. date the 22mm straps in all lengths and colors be available ?
    Thanks

  55. AJ

    Consider this my vote for a 19mm short version! So many vintage watches out there with 19mm lug width

  56. spinkdaddy

    20mm tapering down to 16mm is a lot. Will you make one that tapers to 18mm?

  57. Governor

    Hello
    Do your straps fit the fatty seiko spring bar. 2.5 mm thick

  58. Russell

    I’d like to see a shorter size.

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Yes sir, we are working on them, technical drawings, prototyping then manufacturing takes months, so we probably won’t be able to see the short version until April 2020

  59. Chris Larson

    Will there be a 19mm version made? And is the light grey also referred to as the off white?

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Hi, sorry, not in 2020, because we tested the current 20mm tropic on several vintage Rolex and Heuer and there is no squeeze at all and the 20mm wears perfectly on them

  60. Chris

    Any update on the 22mms? Thanks,

  61. Jean François

    23 or 24mm size at lugs Would be a Very good option for diving watches Like Blancpain Fifty Fathoms or Panerai. Looking forward

      Hi, it is in stock

  69. M S

    You have a response 2/15/20 that the 22mm green Tropic is in stock, but I don’t see it anywhere?

  70. Chans

    Will we see a 21mm strap that will fit an Omega SM300 or will the 22mm suffice for a 21mm lug width, much as the 20 suffices for a 19mm?

  71. Jordan

    Hi,

    When will you have 22mm tropics available again?

    JC

  72. L

    Will you produce 18mm for midsize dive watches?

  73. Michael J Strylowski

    When will a 19 mm size be available?

  74. Buggsy Malone

    I don’t get it. In your reply column you say you have a 22mm tropic strap in green in stock, but then on the webpage you say you only have 20mm. I’d like a black tropic rubber strap in 22mm. I’ve asked before and you say it’s coming, and then you keep pushing back the arrival dates. Are you a bunch of goofballs who say anything but do nothing. Are you scam artists or just stupid morons.

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Hi, the holes are made for 2mm springbars, and as there are different Seiko springbars, the Seiko 2mm will fit but the 2.5mm wont, although some owners fit them, but it is not recommended.

    Is the anthracite in 20mm available?

  117. Thomas

    Really?? Bad decision on your part – and totally unprofessional too, leaving customers waiting for so long without ever announcing the cancellation.. Such a shame.

    • Mark

      Totally agree with Thomas on that, thanks for posting. Poor form indeed but what a missed opportunity – sure looked to me from other posts that the interest was there. Gotta wonder how that demand estimate was done, or rather just avoiding another sku. Lost me as a customer, though I’m sure that Uncle Seiko will appreciate my order.

  118. Stef (verified owner)

    The color of the green tropic strap matches perfectly with the dial and bezel of my Seiko MM300 Green Forest ! The comfort is awsome ! Thanks for the quick delivering.

  120. Hanne-Lene (verified owner)

    Hi, the nato strap is perfect on my pam due 38, but it is waaay to long. Are you really not considering making a shorter one? For me the buckle is almost right next to the watch case itself with this strap.

  121. Jonathan

    Update on the 22mm straps? I feel these have been “coming soon” for well over a year. I read the comment on Coronavirus shutdown back in May… Any updates? Will all colorways be available?

  122. Daniel

    Awesome strap! Best quality rubber strap I have experienced so far. Super versatile, as it also fits my 19mm lug width FOIS Speedy for example, without looking bad.
    A clear recommendation from my side.

    • Synchron Store Admin

      Hi Daniel, you can use the 20mm Tropic on any 19mm lugged watch with it looking by any mean squeezed, there are hundreds of photos of vintage 19mm Rolex, Heuer and others using the 20mm Tropic
      thanks

  123. Patrick

    Please oh please round off the ends at the lugs. I know the flat ends is how the originals were made, but it would look so much better if there were no sharp edges at the lugs that stick out when the strap curves around the wrist. Maybe have both options available?

    It the most comfortable strap I’ve ever worn. I’m dying for a 22mm option. I know there are other brands, but I doubt they are as supple and stretchy. The only issue is that there is wiggle room with my 20mm spring bars. Quality product, I’ll be buying more. Oh, and it still smells delicious.

  129. Inno

    Can you email me when you have shorter version? Thanks.

  130. Joe

    1 on prioritizing a shorter 20mm strap. Would make Tropic absolutely perfect for the Divers Sixty-Five, Black Bay Fifty-Eight and more.

  150. Kyle

    If you could create the 20mm strap with curved ends that fit the 14060 Submariner, I believe it would be a big hit. The curved ends would make this impressive strap even more so.

  151. Daniel

    The doxa works very well with your orange strap. These straps are really good for the summer weather we’re having right now. They make orange dial doxa which would have worked even better. I love that watch, it’s such a strap monster

    Will the 22mm taper to 20 or 18mm at the buckle?

    Will there ever be a 22mm brown tropic available?

      Yes, down the road

    Any plans to make shorter straps? I am 110/77, so 210mm is too long. 110/80 would be appropriate for a lot of people.

    When will the TROPIC STRAP be available?
