As the first company to build an integrated rubber strap for the Rolex sports watch in 2010, Rubber B humbly introduced a vulcanized rubber strap, which is designed to block case integration and Oyster buckle compatibility. Featured Rolex watches, including Daytona, submarines, and GMT masters. The preliminary reception situation of the Rolex community was fiercely mixed, and a moderate path accepted by the mainstream paved the long-term focus on promoting quality craftsmanship. Seven years later, Rubber B has become mainstream and has grown exponentially, including more than 175 different watchband options to suit the passion of many different luxury brand watch owners.
Even Rolex, SA has joined the rubber strap phenomenon, recently launched the new “Oyster-Flex” strap for the 2015 Yachtmaster and the new 2017 Daytona. In the past, Rolex produced only a limited number of jewel-encrusted Datejust watches that were fashioned with a diamond-inspired fashion rubber strap, but this new rubber strap for sports models will certainly expand the Rolex watch option enthusiasts in the watch field. .
Most notably, Rubber B is the only company that integrates straps. Its rubber straps are produced in Switzerland, and they always have “Made in Switzerland” mould marks in their rubber, because these marks are strictly protected by international trade law. . Each integrated rubber B watchband contains a solid insert that has been fine-tuned for a specific watch model and maintains a tight, non-rotating mounting of the case (“blocking integration”). The original purpose of Rubber B was to provide astute Rolex watch owners with a viable alternative to the original Rolex bracelet, while they enjoyed comfort, personalization and customization. However, in the case of Rolex’s original crocodile band, this beautiful sky inhabitant can enjoy the additional benefits of bathing, swimming and sweating, and no need to worry about it, but also can wear Rolex’s unique watch.
The recently released Rolex Sky-Dweller‘s unique rubber B strap represents the latest and highest technological development in the field of rubber strap manufacturing. Although the Rubber B belt was produced exclusively at the industry-leading Swiss factory, the Sky-Dweller belt poses considerable challenges in the development process. This new design is significantly more than the previous rubber B model structure. The patented dual color technology called VulChromatic® combines this delicate and complex task with more machine redesign than usual. You may notice that the target goal eventually becomes a successful execution, expressed as a margin with a very limited surface color (below the photo).
This is an overused phrase, but Rolex owners truly understand and appreciate the value of Swiss quality engineering. Every aspect of the rubber B strap must be integral with its intended watch. For example, the bezel of this special strap influences grooves and subtle colour patterns to compliment the various Sky-Dweller models and dials currently available from Rolex. In addition to these design elements, the best interests of the customer must be considered in depth. Because only the wearer wears their watchband for a long period of time, the watchmaker’s reputation can be organically established. Rubber B believes that you must value customers and strive to provide them with a truly impressive product, then enjoy and thank you very much. The VulChromatic® range of products with dual color chemistry was created by Rubber B’s Swiss factory for this exact purpose.
This patented process was carried out during the injection molding phase and produced a wonderfully fused two-color watchband with infinite flexibility and consistency, both as a permanent seamless unit. This allows full motion, twisting and twisting without the need for surface agents such as paint, glue or adhesives. In the industry for a long time, multicolor ribbons can only be achieved with less praise or secondary materials (such as silicone). Vulcanized rubber has always (and indeed) has some limitations in achieving full color/tone spectrum and may not be able to create as many shades as plastic and silicone. However, it is very exciting to now have the ability to produce luxurious natural vulcanized rubber belts in a multi-colored field while opening the door to a range of possibilities.
