Why We Love Them
Original TROPIC® brand rubber diving straps came as standard equipment on many of our favorite vintage diving and sports watches.
Absent from the market for years, a slew of replica and knock-off straps appeared, but none had the feel, look or quality as the original. Fortunately for enthusiasts, the original name, manufacturing process, and moulds were acquired by our friends at The Synchron Group and the original is back and better than ever!
With a larger and growing selection of colors available, we've found these terrific vulcanized rubber straps to be the perfect sporting accessory for vintage and contemporary timepieces alike - grab one today and see what we mean!
Analog:Shift is proud to be the exclusive distributor for TROPIC® Straps in the United States.

About TROPIC® Straps
There are hundreds of rubber strap models and styles, but through the years, there’s only been one strap that is known by its brand name, the TROPIC® strap.
Once standard issue for the world’s most iconic dive watches throughout the sixties and seventies, the TROPIC® name is back to dive again, using a new and proprietary vulcanized rubber formula optimized to deliver unmatched wearer comfort and quality.
Like the original, the new Genuine TROPIC® strap shares the same design elements, adhering to the textured ‘tapestry’ surface that made the original a beloved, multi-generational icon. Its deeply embossed back, and tapered shape are designed to increase wearer comfort, while the strap’s ends are uniquely shaped to create a seamless transition between case, lugs and strap.
Designed in Switzerland, Manufactured in Italy.
All TROPIC® straps are sized at 20mm or 22mm lug width. 20mm strap sizes feature a 16mm taper, 22mm straps taper to 18mm. Overall length on both sizes is 210mm with a usable length of 185mm.
All TROPIC® straps come fitted with a stainless steel pin buckle. Buckle styles may vary.
