In these times leather straps are arguably less convenient for daily purposes, so decided to try on a rubber strap for my Pasha. A bit of an experiment, which some Purists might well bark at, but I was curious to see if a more marine/diver look would suit this older style Pasha. Chose an Uncle Seiko waffle strap, which seemed to fit the clous de Paris on the vendome lugs. I won't claim the result of adjusting the lug fit with a box cutter is something to speak home about. For a more permanent solution, I would probably have a professional make the cut out and if possible find a strap where the pattern doesn't extend all the way to the lugs. But let me know what you think...

I love the lugs
and I am sure that many Pasha owners would really like the idea of having a rubber strap like this on their Pasha or Seatimer. Well done. GEO

Totally agree with your point
Excellent idea - I hope this strap choice will come one day, this will encourage owners of Pasha Seatimer & Pasha 42 to wear again.
Fun at experimenting. A boxcutter just for the experiment. Rubber can tear in when use a boxcutter. It is not easy to deliver quality, so a specialist can deliver custom rubber straps. Succes.
That is a good point. Very interesting about the possibility of ordering one or several custom made. Would you know what company to contact?
That comparison struck me as well - not least in this particular version with the engine turned dial.
straps are tough to find for the Pasha! Love the patina, although dial darkening seems to be an unfortunate characteristic for Pasha dials. Yours wears it well though.
You are right regarding Pasha dials - I have been looking for some time and a surprisingly high percentage had various dial issues. For this particular dial variant darkening around the middle section seems to be most common. Like you. I find that it can ...
‘Under the Sea’
Looks great — the patina/dullness in the finish of the case makes the watch look more like an underwater piece so the diver strap works.
I have always liked how YG ages and patinates - may be part of the reason I gravitate towards YG watches - but never made the connection to the diving context.
