    Nope, it's rubber (actually a rubber wrapped fabric). I will take some measurements and see if I can find something close on ebay. Thanks!

    really shouldnt be difficult to find at all. Hell, you may find someone that has an extra laying around. I only ever used 1 keeper on my straps.

    Congrats on all the new watches everybody! It has taken me a while to work my way through all the new posts! Just wanted to check in with my TWATters.

    On a side note, I stopped into one of the new-to-Louisiana Tudor boutiques to check out there selection. I left thoroughly impressed! In particular, the new Monaco-inspired Heritage Chronograph was quite lovely. I also really, really liked the new Tudor Black Bay. That watch is really quite something in person. It could very well be my next watch (instead of the Tank Solo--I scrapped the Reverso, just too much to ask my parents for!). The cases are a little bit chunky, but it is less a factor of the size and more a factor of how the case is designed. The Black Bay is only 10mm thick, but it looks about 13-14 mm. Very strange!

    The Pelagos was also really cool. Not sure how I feel about titanium though. The lightness was a bit disconcerting.

    I think that Tudor is really hitting it out of the park, and it is welcome to see what I would consider a good value in the sub-$5,000 price range. Brand new the Black Bay was $3,150, which I feel is a whole lot of watch. I wonder how discounting is going to be...

    I had the Black Bay for a while (Tudor is not new to Canada) and can't wait to get a look at the new Heritage Blue.

    No dice. I have a keeper to a 26mm black gator and a few random brown keepers. :(

    Oh so you ended up selling the black bay? I would love to know why! And yes, the Heritage Blue is very cool! It sits surprisingly well on the wrist. Price is a bit high though.

    Newcomer - it was just a case of like, not love. It's a very cool watch - particularly (IMO) on the vintage leather strap. For whatever reason, I found I wasn't wearing it much, so I moved it along. It has already gained legions of fans, however, so clearly many others find it a good fit.

    Oddly enough, I was completely "meh" on the Pelagos initially, but now find it in the running for the empty sports / dive watch slot. Remains to be seen if that will actually be filled, though, as the Speedy 9300 continues to prove its versatility as an all-rounder. It served very well as a one-watch choice these past few days:
