Introducing The Rubber B Rolex Deepsea Glidelock Watch Strap

Rubber B is an American company which has been known to manufacture high-quality vulcanized rubber straps for Rolex and Panerai brand watches. What separates them from the majority of other third-party suppliers is that their straps are designed to follow the shape of the case of the watch they were made for with extreme accuracy. The brand’s latest carbon-fiber-fused rubber strap is for one of Rolex’s heftier models: the Rolex Deepsea.

You see, when it comes to the aftermarket for straps, we certainly are spoiled for options. Most of these take the form of custom leather, or any variety of nylon one-piece straps, also known as NATO straps. When picking up a rubber strap for your sport watch, (which, by the way, is a great option for summer activities), however, then things get a bit dicier.

As unassuming as “rubber strap” may sound, there actually are a vast number of options that come in ever more diverse levels of quality. Depending on where it comes from, it may actually be silicone rather than rubber, and the fit and finish may not look right against your watch. And what if your watch has a number of more unique features, as the Rolex Deepsea does with its integrated bracelet that follows the shape of the case, and its rather clever Glidelock Clasp that allows for easy adjustments? You don’t want to leave that sitting in the drawer for a plain ol’ tang buckle, do you? That, then, is where the Rubber B Rolex Deepsea Glidelock watch strap comes in.

In essence then, the Rubber B Rolex Deepsea Glidelock watch strap stands out because, thanks to its two distinct features, it feels more like something the folks at Rolex might actually offer as an option. First and foremost, the strap is designed so you can swap over your Glidelock clasp (for more about this clasp, check out our review of the Rolex Submariner). This way, you can still keep that micro-adjustment ability to tune things throughout the day. Oh, and if you don’t particularly see yourself diving, you can remove the divers extension, cutting down on some weight as well.

The other feature that makes the Rubber B Rolex Deepsea Glidelock watch strap feel more like a Rolex option is the stepped, or flared, lug design at the end of the strap. Rather than having a narrow rubber band stretching out from the lugs, the flares closely follow the curve that the case establishes. What is more is that the strap also follows the shape of the case between the lugs, mimicking the well-known look that Rolex created with the integrated end links of their bracelets.

This goes a long way towards making it not look like something from the bargain bin was slapped on the watch as a thoughtless addition. It’s not something that you see offered on a lot on aftermarket straps either. Even when I’ve discussed it with some custom leather strap makers, they’ve been hesitant to work on a stepped design, unless they actually had the watch in hand for reference.

In essence, if you’re a Deepsea owner, I think there’s a lot to like here, especially if you are wanting to give the stock bracelet a bit of a summer vacation. Oh, and should you want to save the Glidelock clasp some desk diver marks (though, I’m not sure why you’d want to stick it in a drawer), they do offer a tang buckle version as well. You can pick up the Rubber B Rolex Deepsea Glidelock watch strap direct for a price of $ 250. rubberb.com

Rolex purists might balk at not using the bracelet, but I think it looks great and love the idea of high quality rubber straps tailor-made for certain models.

Very nice niche products. Looks like you are paying for them paying attention to detail (which seems reasonable). Thanks for the review.

Gold Ends Higher Ahead Of Fed Minutes

Posted by: ahametals in Gold & Silver 1 hour ago

July 09 (RTT) —  Gold futures snapped a three-day loss to end higher on Wednesday, ahead of the minutes of U.S. Federal Reserve’s June policy meet due later today, even as some weak global equity markets prompted investors to seek the safe haven of the precious metal.

Investors await the minutes of the Fed’s June policy meet for indicators to its monetary policy, with the central bank widely expected to stick to its dovish stance on concerns over slow inflation growth in the U.S.

It also remains to be seen if the Fed would bring forward its timetable for raising interest rates notwithstanding some concerns over the current economic growth.

Gold for August delivery, the most actively traded contract, gained $ 7.80 to close at $ 1,324.30 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange on Wednesday.

Gold for August delivery scaled an intraday high of $ 1,328.30 and a low of $ 1,318.70 an ounce.

On Tuesday, gold futures ended lower for a third session with some weak economic data from the eurozone supporting the yellow metal. Nonetheless, the gains were offset by some recent upbeat U.S. economic data indicating possibilities of a rate hike by the Federal Reserve sometime soon.

Holdings of SPDR Gold Trust, the world’s largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, edged up to 800.28 tons on Wednesday from its previous close of 798.19 tons on Tuesday.

The dollar index, which tracks the U.S. unit against six major currencies, traded at 80.12 on Wednesday, down from its previous close of 80.17 late Tuesday in North American trade. The dollar scaled a high of 80.23 intraday and a low of 80.02.

The euro traded higher against the dollar at $ 1.3625 on Wednesday, as compared to its previous close of $ 1.3612 late Tuesday in North American trade. The euro scaled a high of $ 1.3643 intraday and a low of $ 1.3604.

In economic news, Chinese consumer prices inflation slowed in June from a 4-month high, as food prices increased at a slower rate, a report from the National Bureau of Statistics showed Wednesday. Nevertheless, the increase was slightly below the consensus estimate.

Consumer prices increased 2.3 percent year-on-year in June following the 2.5 percent increase in May. Economists had expected prices to rise 2.4 percent.

This cool mini-documentary might make you look at Ian Poulter in a different light

This cool mini-documentary might make you look at Ian Poulter in a different light

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

Ian Poulter is outspoken, immensely confident (some say arrogant), and he flaunts his wealth. It’s no coincidence that he tends to rub people the wrong way.
But underneath all that is a fascinating story about a man who left school at 15 to work in a golf shop and eventually rose to become a professional golfer. Poulter relives that story in a documentary by Ballantine, who are using the film to promote their launch of a new golf club in October, 2014.
“The pressure was mounting as the round was building. I was almost at the top of the leader board and my heart was pounding,” Poulter says of how he felt during qualifying school. “I wanted to be inside the ropes, I did not want to be outside the ropes watching.”
