I would like to see a wider range of offering for sea worthy straps that are not metal bracelets. My target is truly the rubber straps as Panerai offers many colors and types of leather and skins. The current rubber straps are only in black and seem more visually suited for the luminors and subs than the radomirs.

I have viewed countless postings of people asking about which straps old up best in water and I think there is a market for this. Moreover, Panerai keeps developing new materials for the faces (ceramic,composite,etc.), the movements (in-house) without dedicating the same innovation for the straps.

I would love to see something simple and durable like the patek aquanaut strap. Something that would not detract from the brand but would offer a good look for both radomir and luminor and would be very durable for water conditions.

Anyone else think this would work?

I agree. There are many brands with great looking rubber/silicone straps, even some nice metal/rubber combo's.

I think we are spoiled with the aftermarket strap selection in leather, and would like to see the same with rubber.

Panerai OEM have sure over looked the options for more 'rubber'!
The standard rubber is very cool and I have no issue with it but the option for at least a few variants (colours & designs) would I'm sure be a hit.
