    Ok, when the Connected 3rd gen first came out, what interested me the most were the straps. It looked like they would fit normal 22mm lugs (1.5mm thick), but it was hard to be certain.

    Not only do they fit, but they come with a deployant clasp. All for $100. Does TH know they priced these that low? Time for me to buy them in every color they sell now!

    Excuse the dust, there is a lot of pollen floating around outside...

    It fits well.
    Tag Heuer is planning to raise the price of the strap after June 1st, so we have to hurry to buy it.

    Bracelet is £400 at the moment in the UK, unfortunately I don’t fancy any of the colours available at the moment for my Monaco.

    Is the current price just an introductory offer? Do you know how much it will go up by? Thanks!

    I only know the price based on yen, but the rubber strap will be increased from 11000 yen to 17000 yen, so I think the increase will be about $50.

    On the contrary, the price of the bracelet seems to go down.

    I think it is still a bargain at that price for rubber strap with deployant. At current prices it is a steal. Plus in the US it is free overnight shipping, so they can't be making much on current transactions. I think they just want more people to buy the connected watches and are coming in with cheap accessories to support that. Little do they know we are pilfering them all for our normal pieces :)

    I spent $250 for just omega rubber and more than that for the clasp.

    I wonder if this would fit the 43mm F1 Chronograph? Might be a good replacement down the road.

    I've just checked out the prices in Australia and the rubber straps with deployant clasp are $220 which is very reasonable. The non-perforated strap is $300 and the bracelet is $520.

    I wonder how the red, perforated, rubber strap would go with my Carrera Calibre 36 Racing......???? It could be a bit too much....

    Yes, the perforated strap has gone from £80 to £120 and the red stitched rubber strap has gone from £120 to £170!

    Carramba - had I only seen this last Saturday when I was at the TH Boutique in Geneva...

    Still - does anyone have a link to where you can see the different color options available?

    The QR system works with the standard springbars left in place?

    However, owning already a FC5037 clasp, I’ll probably hunt down an original rubber replacement strap for my Monaco, which - BTW - is 145 CHF at TH but much less at Bucherer (WTF?)

    Do you happen to know if the lug width of your Monaco is exactly 22mm? I’m considering buying the same rubber strap for F1 Chronograph and the lug width is 21.6mm. Thanks!
