Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The strap on my Suunto Core has finally given way after several years of use/abuse and I need to look for a replacement.
    The thing is, I don't want to use the stock strap as I hate the rubber feel of it, and would much rather have somthing leather/cloth. Has anyone had to replace theirs and found anything beyond the direct replacements available online (and if I have to spend almost £18 on a watch strap I want it to be more than bloody rubber!), and if so where did you source it?

    Not familiar with the watch... But any reason not to use a NATO/G10 strap?

    Bunch of pics of a Core fitted to these straps here Core with a NATO strap?
     
  3. Hmmm not sure about that. It does look as if it's tied to the wrist with a piece of string. I'd be happier with something actually fitted and in scale with the watch itself.

    If you think £18 is a bit steep, not sure how you'll do better than this:

  5. What I meant (and should have said, with hindsight) was that £18 for a piece of rubber was expensive. I don't mind paying for a decent strap.
     
  6. Not been here long have you? ;)
     
  7. Wowsers! I gotta get me one of them. It's simply made for pubs!
     
  8. Have you tried Trekkit in Hereford? I got a cloth version of the strap there - although to be honest it only lasted for a year. None on their website Suunto Outdoor Watches - Trekitt Mountain Sports Shop, but you might be able to give them a ring and see what they do for you...
