Strap Suggestions

I am looking at a rubber strap for my Tudor Ranger and have it narrowed down to Zealande and Rubber B. Does anyone have experience with either brand or could recommend one versus the other? My first criteria would be how comfortable it is to wear. Second is fit and finish. Thank you for your input. Rubber B on left, Zealande on Right.

Assuming the strap on the right is Rubber B, I'd go with that. It looks meant in a way the Zealande just doesn't.

No idea about the quality or comfort though.

Updated picture so you can see them both from a better angle.

The right is the Zealande

Between those two, I would get Green Zealande. But for me and my ranger, I’m rolling with the rubber straps and sailcloth straps from Strapsco and the ribbed NATOs from CNS. If I was to buy an expensive rubber strap, it would probably be the CTS from Delugs. But… no bad options here. The Ranger is a strap monster!

I looked at the Delugs and it looks pretty nice, but they only make it for the BB58.

I bought a Rubber B for my SMP last year. It was a pain in the ass to put it on the watch. The spring bars rubber connection to the strap is hard and not too easy to manipulate. Which is a good thing. The fit on the watch is perfect with no play or gap. The strap is not FKM and would attract oily substance easy, but it is also easy to wash it off with some soapy water. The $240 price tag was a bit steep. Unfortunately due to dingy (6.25") wrist, the strap still didn't fit well even at the last hole. If your wrist is like mine, it is probably better to look elsewhere. Vanguard straps show a strap for a Ranger with different colors. At $140, it is an easier swallow if the strap doesn't work out.

Everest offers a black rubber strap that uses the OEM Tudor clasp. It's expensive but cool that you can use the Tudor clasp with microadjust. I've thought about it since I never wear my Ranger on bracelet. It would be a way to make use of the clasp that I currently never use.

BB58 and Ranger are essentially the same case and the bracelets are interchangeable. You can watch a few YouTube videos to confirm, but it seems like a good fit from everything I have seen. And all of the pictures of the delugs look good on the Ranger.

Update: I ordered the Zealande because they are having a 15% off sale right now.
