But AP will not make this sort of change. Typically, parts on a specific watch can only be replaced with like parts. So a worn rubber bezel can be replaced with a new rubber bezel, but you cannot simply pick from other materials. The "rubberclad" is also iconic for its rubber bezel, pushers, crown, and strap, and I would enjoy it that way.
I'm sure we have all thought of interesting combos at one time or another though ;-)
