Wristbuddys Premium Rubber Strap for Blancpain X Swatch

Some of the most controversial wristwatches to have been launched in the last few years are without question the Swatch collaborations with Omega via the MoonSwatch and Blancpain with the Scuba Fifty Fathoms. As the marmite of the watch collecting world you either love their fun, accessible takes on iconic designs or hate their supposed disingenuous mass market appeal. One thing’s for sure though, they have been a wild success. And with success comes cool accessories and alternative Blancpain x Swatch straps from brands like Wristbuddys to help customise your watch and make it feel more personal.

This first Wristbuddys band for the Blancpain x Swatch is classy in black, well suited to several of the Scuba Fifty Fathoms colourways. As a reminder, the collaboration watches are inspired by the world’s oceans and the colours are designed to represent the environment and ecology of the area. The black strap here with its fabric style texture pairs well with the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean models and the Ocean of Storms edition that was released at the start of this year.

Of note, all the Wristbuddys straps are custom moulded specially for the Scuba Fifty Fathoms, right down to the fact that the Scuba Fifty Fathoms doesn’t have standard lugs. As such they also provide a free strap changing tool with each of their Blancpain x Swatch bands as a normal tool won’t work.

One of the most unique of the Scuba Fifty Fathoms is the Antarctic Ocean model with its grey and white colourway, inspired by the icy ocean at the bottom of the world. However, while this strap bears the name Antarctic Grey, it works just as well on the Ocean of Storms model too. That’s because the Ocean of Storms is not an ocean on Earth, instead being a crater on the moon, following the same naming convention as the more famous Sea of Tranquillity.
