They just don't make them like they used to.

On another note the bank is taking longer than usual so i apologize for the slight delay. Hope you won't change your mind about the GG-W-113!

Hobbs i like the combination of the rubber strap on the SM300. Fits nicely for a diver.

Lovely strap from Marathon. Personally, the best rubber strap I have. It is caoutchouc. If I do get the Tudor, I will get another one of these straps for the watch.

This is a lovely Omega... sorry if I'm off but is it one of the re-constructed models by the Aussie company?
Regarding the rubber strap, how can I order or buy from Marathon? Does it comes with a folding buckel or pin buckle?
Price-range?
I've been looking for a rubber strap for my SMP and Planet Ocean that can take the original Omega folding buckle..
I wrote to the company you recommended but they didnt even reply.

Thanks, Hobbs..

Refer here for the Omega SM300 homage build up:

http://www.malaysiawatchforum.com/index.php/topic,5219.0.html

As for the company I recommended, they are a stockist and 'don't' know much about watches and the parts. So if you ask them which strap will fit which watch, you will unlikely get a reply. You need to know what you want to get. You can check with Omega service for the part numbers and I can get Omega here to order the straps for you. I have ordered straps from them before and they will order the strap. The service centre here very friendly. Sadly they will not sell me the winding stem unless I send the SM300 in for a service, which I will do soon.

The strap is available on-line but not sure if they will ship international. It is USD 55 + shipping. I pm you the site.

Hobbit,

I think your post warrants a new thread as this is the thread for wrist shoots.

Always great info from you and i think the members can learn ALOT from your post.
