I'm surprised by how many don't like the supermarine rubber. I find it to be one of the most comfortable rubber straps I've owned. Especially when compared to say a PAM rubber that just never seems to loosen up the way I would like it to.

Matt, didn't you have a P51 at one point?
That watch is one hot watch with more unique design features that are out together extremely well. I'd like to own one at some point.

I like the Bremont rubber as well David. I think it only works well on larger wrists. Supposedly the new one is even better.

P-51 is my favorite Bremont and actually one of my favorite watches, period. I sold it to find the Patek, but have dibs on the flip.

Which model tickles your fancy? Me, I'm a Supermarine/MBII guy. :thumbsup:

I'm thinking the S2000 might work well for me.
Yup, I could definitely see you in one of those. Pearson is gonna be back at Red Bar soon, and he always has on on him; you should try to make it out when he's there and try it on.

The rubber strap would fit better if it wasn't so freakin long.... :cussing:

I could wear the 44MM IWC rubber strap on the second to last hole
but would have to punch a hole in the rubber strap for the Bremont...

It sucks when you buy a $5K-$6K and you can't wear it out of the box...

The standard IWC rubber is very short. I'd buy an XL if I bought an AT and my wrists aren't huge.
