Buy Tudor OEM fabric strap for Black GMT 79830RB – Guide
Tudor has established itself not only a watch brand that makes qualitative and stunning watches but also has great fabric straps.
In 2009, Tudor identified that collectors and enthusiasts used and appreciated nato straps for its sports watches, and took note. As a result, Tudor started including a complimentary fabric strap in its sports watches sets, which work as a nice complement with which you can change the look of the watch, but also mix and match depending on the occasion you are wearing it.
In 2016, Tudor started updating its fabric strap strategy. Now, Tudor started removing the complimentary straps from the sets and revising its lineup by making its sports watches available from the boutique with three strap options. Steel bracelet, leather strap, or fabric strap. Previously, their sports watches were only available with either a leather strap or steel bracelet. And both including a fabric strap.
According to some sources, the reason for this is that the French factory that manufactures the straps according to ancient techniques did not have the resources to manufacture that many straps. But today, unless you buy a Tudor watch originally on the fabric strap from the store, you will need to buy one separately if you want one. But the availability of Tudor fabric straps is surprisingly rather limited still, as many Tudor authorized retailers do not have a vast selection of them in stock, and back order times can be several weeks, sometimes even months.
