    I have the Rubber B strap on my no-date Submariner and love it. But the Rubber B solution doesn't look as good for the Sky Dweller.

    I have the Sky Dweller with the leather strap.Can I retrofit an Oysterflex rubber strap to it?

    Matt, Just make sure if you ever send it in for service to change it back first. ;)

    I believe the new Sky OF is 22mm and the leather is 21mm, search rolexforums.com if it can be done someone would have posted there.

    So...

    I’m not asking if it’s allowed under the Rolex rule book

    I’m asking if it’s possible. Does the new Oysterflex fit a leather strap Sky Dweller?

    Rolex forum is same as Fchat, nothing to do with Rolex Co. If its been done or tried and failed someone there would have posted.

    I can't say for sure but I think it probably does (as long as you have the right width). I believe owners of the strap Daytonas have "upgraded" ok. I think the issue you might have is how it looks given that the built in filler region between the lugs to narrow the gap from strap to watch head is flat but the Oysterflex has a raised center profile. You might want to buy a correctly sized repro on the web for $20 and see how it looks. I'm not sure I'd like the take-off of the center raised section but if it works for you then you could buy the real deal with clasp.
