I was speaking with a guy at one of the AD's in Vegas a while ago and he told me about some new military rubber straps. He mentioned there was a black/red rubber - which I thought was cool but never really looked into it. However, all I can find are the yellow/black rubber from the Hurricane piece.

I also found a black canvas but simply a red backing which wouldn't really be seen.

Does the exact strap in the picture exist in red? And I don't mean the ones from the Super Oceans either with the tang.

I've got a blacksteel Avenger with the red subdials that really doesn't get the wrist time it deserves - want to give it some pizazz. Would love to find a unicorn red ocean racer but that's a one in a million it seems.

Thanks in advance all!

This is the one maybe but I think it has been discontinued. The red Ocean Racer can be found but it is quite rare.

I have a 22mm one that I was lucky enough to find thru a Breitling Rep. a couple years ago, need to find another watch to wear it on, might have something coming in May to put it on. I was told the reason they discontinued it (color bleeding) but I haven't had that problem so far.

That's such a good looking strap on a black or white dial!

Kodiak... if you ever want to sell, let me know.

Zak - that's similar, just a tang. Trying to find a rubber deployment to use with my blacksteel deployment.

No, I don't think a black/red deployment rubber was ever produced, I've only ever seen the tang version.
