Knew he had them in the works, but didn't know they were available now, so thanks for the heads up. I'll be ordering one.

Are these soft enough to squeeze into 19mm lugs?

I need both sizes. Is there a discount code?

Don’t know about the sizing question, but use WISDEAL for 10% off.

Good to hear. Hopefully he’ll release a shorter version for those of us with slimmer wrists.

Just ordered 3....

Should work on 6105. They are soft enough to give a little.

And this will be a must for the topper seiko le.

I've got both lengths of the 22mm and have a 7" wrist. Both work fine on the Nafts, but I do prefer the shorter version on those.

After wearing the OEM for years these are such a HUGE improvement.

I wish someone would make rubbers with a longer buckle end, say 85-90

Brands could keep a 115-120 tail end, but offer both a 70-75 buckle end and an 85-90 buckle end.

This would accommodate virtually all wrist sizes, especially if using an Isofrane style slot with close placement and many holes.
