Need help with picking out a strap for my Hublot SOBB...

Oct 18, 2019,07:55 AM

I’ve had this Hublot SOBB since early this year:

I really love this thing. The honeymoon phase has not worn off.  It’s also my most complemented watch ever.  I need some help picking out an alternative strap.  Per the Hublot straps configurator, the ones available for my model are: alligator (various colors) and black, white and transparent rubber.  I’m leaning towards the white rubber. The SOBB has a white mid-case, sandwiched by blue, with other white bits, so the white rubber strap should complement it well. Do you think the white rubber strap will too in your face? Thoughts?

I have the slightly larger white ceramic Spirit of Big Bang and, like you, it continues to put a smile in my face. I think the SoBB is quite an under-rated collection. My favorite strap for your watch is actually the one you have on it today - the OEM blu... 

Nick, Thank you!

No doubt that the stock white rubber with blue alligator and blue stitching strap is our favorite strap for this watch! I want a new strap to change things up. I appreciate your feedback on the white rubber strap. It will be the perfect combo, with some p... 

Defo white rubber!

I have a white rubber King Power... the white strap certainly stands out but if you are somewhere warm it is just perfect!! (I am travelling at the moment otherwise would have posted a pic) Cheers Andrew

Andrew, yes the white strap will definitely pop and stand out...

And give the watch almost a totally different look. That’s what I'm after, plus being able to swim with it.

I’d keep it pure. Keep it blue. That watch stands out by itself. I own 2 Hublots and I love them and they stand out. I’d keep it the way it is. Boring? Yes. But i love them the way they are. (Except my Unico - for which I got the Alcantara black strap wit... 

Right, there’s nothing wrong with the stock blue alligator stitched over white rubber strap...

It totally was made for the reference. But I’m looking for a second strap. Something really fun (and waterproof), like the white rubber. Not that the stock strap isn’t fun

i like the white strap for it.

Either the white rubber or the gummy alligator. It would look great on it.

I agree

I still haven’t pulled the trigger on the white rubber, but will be getting it soon. Then I’ll be able to swim with it
