Re: get it with the..................
In Response To: GMT: Rubber band vs SS band ()

SS band. Then purchace the rubber or leather. The ss is over +$400.00 if you decide to buy it down the road. Get it with the SS and buy the leather/rubber after. (shouldn't be near as much), and you can change them out depending on the dress situation. (thats what I do.)Sharkskin $80.00, Alligator, $160.00.

: Now that I have decided on the purchase of a GMT, I am now stuck on the which
: band to get. Is the rubber band more confortable? Is the rubber band made
: of rubber or some kind of leather? The SS bandfrom what I have heard is
: one of the best in the marketeven better that rolex. Can anyone help me
: with this problem?
