Christopher Ward Hybrid Rubber Strap

I was just wondering if anyone has one of these on their CW watch and what their opinion of it is. Is it flexible and comfortable or better just to buy a Barton Silicon or Sailcloth alternative?

Thanks in advance for any reies.

I had a chance to try their hybrid straps at Windup in NYC and they felt amazing…way more supple than I was expecting. Can’t speak to the wearability after hours of wearing, but tbh, it changed my mind about getting their watches on bracelet since I found it that comfy. Tried it on with both smaller and some of their bigger watches. I don’t have any experience with Barton or Sailcloth straps for comparison unfortunately.

Thanks for the comprehensive reply. Barton Elite Silicone are very comfortable but maybe not quite "classy" enough if you were out to dinner,where you'd get away with a vintage leather/ Sailcloth/ Hybrid Rubber. I didn't want to buy a stiff uncomfortable strap asmy C63 has both bracelet and vintage leather at the moment.

It's quite comfortable and souple. My biggest complaint would be how bulky it is at the buckle.

I mostly wear it when on vacation or expect the watch to get wet.

Fun fact: when it gets humid, it will emboss a twin flag logo on your skin.

Many thanks for the info and pics. You're right, it does look quite bulky at the buckle though. I just noticed you have the GMT, nice...

It served me well so far. It works nicely with almost every strap. I don't regret the hybrid rubber as it's quite a unique fit in orange. Neutral straps are plentiful.

These Sealanders are strap monsters.
