This time round, I had the opportunity to try out a new silicone strap from vario.sg. The strap is available in 20mm and 22mm and comes with an option of either polished stainless steel or matte black buckle. Most importantly, it comes in a variety of colours as you can see above.
This strap is made with soft silicone material which is very comfortable to wear. The long end is 120mm long and has 10 holes that more than the usual 7 to 8 holes on most straps. If you have small wrist, you probably don’t have to punch additional holes with this strap.
The short end is 75mm long, excluding buckle. It has two movable keepers that holds the tail end nicely for all wrist sizes.
This strap is made for people who prefer straps that are not tapered. I received both 20mm and 22mm specimens and both do not taper towards the tail end and buckle end.
The strap is 3mm thick and again it does not taper at both ends. This thickness is suitable for regular dive watches and casual watches that are not super thick.
The strap comes with quick release spring bars that make it easy to install and remove. No spring bar tool is required.
I also notice there’s a very fine texture on the back of the strap. This probably helps to reduce the movement of the strap when it is on the wrist.
The strap is fitted with a nice buckle that has the vario brand engraved on it.
Below are pictures of the straps on some of my watches.
The vario silicone straps is soft and very comfortable to wear. It has a minimalist design with no texture or perforation on its surface. This makes it suitable for a wide range of watches.
I find that this strap is most suitable for casual/weekend watches as well as smart watches. With its simple design and variety of colours, this strap will give your watches a very clean and sporty look.
