Regarding the Pelagos springbars, wouldn’t the springbar tip dimensions matter more than bar diameter? I mean, you can use any bar that fits the strap, as long as the tips fit securely into the lug holes, right? Am I missing something?
We have to really check, so far the idea of the 1.5mm spring bar is just an idea from another user based on the location of the spring bar begin a little further from the case on the Pelagos. However I would defiantly rather invest and develop a purpose made strap for the pelagos if there is any modification or bending required to the spring bar. Right now Rolex straps are almost done, after which we will start with he BB36 and then maybe the Pelagos or fifty eight right after.

Hi Ahmad,

Any plans to make rubber straps that fit the Tudor Chronograph cases from the 90's and 2000's. The case numbers are 79260 etc.

James
To be completely honest with you I don't think we will. Reason why is because we invest in new tooling for each model and it can get really expensive and vintage Tudor's are too far and few between.

On the plus side, I know a lot of vintage Tudors are compatible with Rolex bracelets. If that's the case with the 79260 then maybe our upcoming Submariner strap might fit.

ps: we went this standard 120/80 for the strap length but that doesnt accommodate larger wrists so we will introduce longer straps later this year.

Here it is on the oem deployant.

One comment that I've received is the strap length doesn't match the oem strap and thus the oem deployant isn't centered as well as oem. This was intentional as most black bay and all heritage chrono owners buy their watches on a bracelet and thus will stick with the standard tang buckle.
