Rubber B and Rolex Daytona 16520 Question

    Hi everyone,
    I'm considering getting the Rubber B Classic Series strap for my newly acquired Rolex Zenith Daytona 16520, and like the idea of using the deployment clasp from the watch's 78390 bracelet. My understanding is that I would be attaching the Rubber B to the riveted link on the 6 o'clock side with the 12 o'clock side being attached and tucked under the clasp.

    I was wondering if any fellow forum members have put a Rubber B on their Zenith Daytona and have pictures they could share of the clasp side of how it looks when worn on the wrist (is it centered and comfortable)? And if so, would you still go the deployment route or would you have rather gone with the tang buckle version?

    thanks,
    Glenn

    Hello Glenn-
    To avoid the clasp closure I chose the velcro Rubber B for my Zenith. It works great adjustment wise but is a bit bulky where the strap turns to come back.
    If I did it again I'd go for the tang buckle which I think is actually the simplest, sportiest and best looking way to go

    First of all congrats on the 16520: it looks fantastic.

    Personally I would keep it on the steel bracelet or I would use a vintage leather one.

    If Rubber B, tang buckle.
