You all know what happened to the old one.

After a new battery and some goo gone to remove the tar that used to be the strap it’s working. This belongs to a good friend so I told him I would at least ask if anyone has or knows where I can get a strap. I found a red one one eBay but I’m not sure how good a red one would look. Thanks in advance!

I had the same thing happen to mine.

I bought a replacement from the Invicta store. With the discount they had going, it cost me about 70 for a black leather strap. Mine took the 35mm strap. Not sure what model you have but mine was the 35mm.


They also have the rubber but, no way I was getting another rubber strap from Invicta.

I would also be interested if any site has these. I have a SAN IV and V that also need new straps but, like the Akula have a unique strap design so it's not easy to find replacements.

Thanks! That red one is looking pretty good at 29.00 😂

I love invicta, but I absolutely hate their straps I don’t think one has ever stood the test of time in storage.. ALSO what a classic beautiful that akula is. I would just invest the doe into handmade NON invicta strap I have one like this I didn’t wear … I put it on after a while and the strap tore right off the case. Lucky for me it was leather and a bit of shoe goo tighten me right up

Mine just tore off my Akula, I have tubes of shoe goo. Why didn't I think of that . BOW.gif Akula straps are a big nightmare indeed. I might try Steveo. :drink:

Every "Big I" poly U strap that I have ever had has eventually disintegrated in this manner. Good luck with a replacement.

I needed to see this thread to share the pain. I have been using Shoe goo for ages. My strap broke last night and thankfully it didn't hit the Publix tile floor ROGER . The shoe goo sounds perfect. Thanks BN 3.gif

That's the exact strap I just put on mine after like so many others, my poly/rubber/whatever it really is totally disintegrated. I thought if anything, the leather would be a good long wear solution. Damn!
Can you tell me anything about the discount you mentioned ??

We’ve decided that this is just gonna be a paperweight and sit on his bench. It’s kind of a cool watch but if you have one oversize Invicta or a thousand it’s kind of all the same.
