The Cap Strap - Elastic Bottle Opener Watch Band

from 24.00
sale

Supreme comfort. Convenient utility. Practical design. What more could you want in a watch band? Oh, a bottle opener, you say? Introducing: The Cap Strap. The World’s First Fully Elastic, Bottle-Opening Watch Strap. These dynamic bands are made from military-grade Twill Woven Elastic Webbing, and my first-ever totally custom Zinc Alloy “G-Hook” hardware.

However, due to the very unique nature of these straps, I’m only able to supply a specific set of build options at this time until interest in the concept has been evaluated to justify further development costs.

That said, if you’re a fan of simplicity or “blacked out” gear in 20mm width, then no worries! Otherwise, feel free to pre-order another Elastic color and I’ll ship it once its in stock. Varying widths will be a while out unless I get enough pre-orders to make it happen sooner. So tell your drinking buddies!

Updates:

  • 10/6/2018 - Tighter, Cleaner 100% Polyester Stitching.

  • 10/8/2018 - 22mm Buckles and Elastics are now in Production!

  • 10/11/2018 - Added wrist sizes for guaranteed comfort.

Current Stock: All Elastic Colors, Black Hardware, 20mm Strap Width.

SPECS:

The Short Version:

  • 100% Custom, Durable Zinc Alloy G-Hook/Bottle Opener hardware.

  • Utilizes 1.5mm thick military-grade Twill Woven Elastic Webbing as band material.

  • Superbly comfortable. Breathable. Water resistant. Shock resistant.

  • Easily opens standard bottle tops without removing your watch.

  • Conforms to wrist shape and stretches with your natural movements.

  • 5” - 9” wrist sizes now offered to achieve a perfectly tailored fit. Then use the built-in adjustment slider to find your sweet spot.

  • Choose one of 15+ Elastic colors for a personalized look.

  • Includes one Cap Strap + Two Bolt-Action Spring Bars.

The Long Version:

- Quality Hardware: Designed and built completely from the ground up, the black oxide-coated, ‘G-Hook’ style, heavy-duty Zinc Alloy hardware acts as both the closure method and bottle-opener apparatus.

- Poppin’ Caps: The bottle opening feature works via the robust tooth integrated into the G-Hook design. Without even removing the watch from your wrist, just apply the opener beneath any bottle cap edge, and firmly pry in an upward motion to remove the cap. Then just re-hook the buckle back onto the loop of your strap until next time!

- Like Sweatpants For Your Wrist: The Elastic used for these straps was also specially developed specifically for the task of being worn all day on the wrist. This material has an exceptionally tight yet breathable Twill Weave of polyester and rubber, with reinforced edges that prevents unraveling and shape change when stretched. All in all, it makes for the most comfortable watch wearing experience you’ll ever have.

- Tailored Fit: No matter what size wrist you have, you’ll find no greater amount of adjustability and comfort than you will with the Cap Strap. Now offered in all wrist sizes from 5” - 9”, choose the strap length that best suits the circumference of your wrist. Further adjustment can be handled via the built-in strap slider for that perfect, glove-like fitment. (If you’re in between sizes, go with the larger size. Custom sizing is always welcome, too! Just leave a comment with your order.)

- Ultra Flexible: Probably the most overlooked factor related to wearing watches is that throughout any given day, the human wrist will expand and contract dozens of times when exposed to different temperatures and activities. Leather, steel, rubber and silicone all suffer in some way to these changes, but not Elastic. It will adapt and conform to your every move, both voluntary and involuntary, without you ever noticing.

- Shock Absorbing: The spring bars of your watch are the only thing keeping your precious timepiece attached to your wrist. So why not treat them right? Metal and leather bracelets, for example, are often worn too tight. And when you flex your wrist or bump your watch into something, this puts severe strain upon them. Elastic however, acts as the perfect shock absorber due to its magnificent ability to stretch.

- Through Thick & Thin: Thanks to its synthetic nature, this is a strap that’s right at home anywhere from the office to your next backpacking trip. And when you get back, it’s ready for the pool, or next to it manning the barbecue. This Elastic is incredibly durable, completely water-resistant, and super easy to wash if needed! If that’s not enough, this stuff even meets the mil-spec durability requirements set by the U.S. Armed Forces. No biggie.

- Customization: Choose from over 15 Elastic Colors! All hardware will remain black for the time being. (More choices coming soon!)

 

*Pre-Orders for different Width Straps will require a few months of R&D. If appropriate funding is never met, your money will be refunded.

**Watch not included. Sorry.

Proudly made right here in California.
