Whether you call it a rubber strap, watch strap, watch band, watch bracelet, they all mean the same thing which describes a watch accessory that straps a watch onto ones wrist. The critical function of a watch band is to enable a watch to be held onto one’s wrist, securely, so that the time can be discovered at a moment’s notice.
Chaffle Rubber watch strap was inspired and designed to pay tribute to Seiko’s iconic ZLM01 Waffle rubber watch band which was introduced with Seiko’s 6215-7000 diver back in 1967. Unlike the retro Waffle strap, the Chaffle straps are applied with additional advanced tooling that creates an enhanced pyramid profile, highly reflective, and visible Waffle shape. The new proportion of the grooves and patterns allow buckle holes to be located properly without breaking the Waffle like design.
Using solid and high-density FKM rubber as the material, the Chaffle strap weighs approximately 35 grams, water-proof, and is made to stand harsh conditions, such as high temperature and chemicals. There is a unique retainer design to hold the watch band keeper in place without losing its flexibility. Chaffle rubber watch bands definitely are a new upgraded version of the retro Seiko Waffle strap.
