some history about Tropic straps from the great dive watch resource “TROPIC brand watch straps were the original waterproof strap back in the '60s & '70s, and were original equipment on many dive watches including the Rolex Submariner. If you specified your Submariner without the bracelet, this is the strap you got. Rolex service centers were also supplied with Tropic straps. Tropics were produced in Switzerland during the '60s and '70s, and later manufactured in China using the original molds. The originals are signed ‘TROPIC’ and marked ‘SWISS MADE’.”
