Do you have a link to ABP? Thanks.

Anything other than an original band from Rolex will look absolutely ridiculous.

I've tried different straps on my sub, including gators, leather, rubber, and nylon natos. The gator didn't look right at all. The leather and rubber were ok. The nato look is outstanding.

These are hideous, I dont think the color looks good with the Submariner nor do I think the swiss cheese leather band works. NATO or bracelet FTW.

years ago, i had a shell NATO strap made for my sub. Looked great...but lost it with the watch in trades over the years. I still keep in close contact with some strapmakers...shoot me a PM if youre interested and i can get you some info.

But other than the bracelet, the only viable options that dont look orphaned are NATOs and maybe the old rolex tropical strap if you can find one.

johnandrew, the sub is almost perfection in design of a tool watch. Those straps only detract from it, not sure what watch they would not detract from.

Not a diver eh? I'm not sure about how those straps will hold up after a couple of dives. Especially if you are in the sun on a boat or on a beach.

When I'm on the beach, I change to a bracelet:
