    Yes, all the straps that are exclusive to the different Special Editions are rare, because you can’t buy them as a normal accessory or spare part like the other straps. These Special Edition straps are not sold separately, you can only get them together with the full set of the specific Special Edition... and your red strap with TH logo from the BMC cycling team was even more rare, because that was a very limited edition.

    A different story is whether they are nice or not... I would buy the pink strap with TH logo if I find it at reasonable price, just as a collector item, but I don’t think I would wear it very often! ;)
    A very different case is the blue calfskin strap with red stitching from the Red Bull Racing Special Edition: I was really looking for this one because it’s very nice and very usable, so it was the last strap that I really wished after I got the Kingsman, Golf Edition, and Manchester United straps :)

    Albert-AMG how do you take care of the rubber straps? I have a couple for my Modular 45 but dont want them to crack over time. I had rubber straps like on my Bell and Ross BR01 that after two years the strap cracked.

    I hope we don’t have the same problem with the TH Modular straps! :eek:

    I just wash them from time to time with water, Moussel Aloe Vera gel, and using an old toothbrush to reach everywhere. My older rubber straps are just 1 year old, so I don’t know what will happen 1 year later, but they look exactly like new at the moment... I hope TAG Heuer uses better rubber quality than Bell and Ross! ;)

    Bought myself an early x-mas present today! The Calibre 5 analog module is on it's way to me :D:D:D

    I have been twisting and turning to buy it for quite some time now but bumped on to a great deal and couldn't resist any longer! So that brings my collection to 3 rubber straps, one titanium wristband and the Calibre 5 analog module.

    Congratulations!! :)
    I love the Calibre 5 mechanical module! It’s a great addition to your Modular collection, which is now “Connected to Eternity”! ;)

    Please post pictures of your collection when your Calibre 5 module arrives! :thumbsup:

    Congrats. You don't need 2 brown straps though. I would sell one to me :D

    I do love the calibre 5 analog module. The only issue with that is that now i want the calibre 16 too :whistling:

    :D Thanks! From all the standard straps (I mean, the non Special Editions straps) the brown calfskin strap is my favourite, so I have two of them: one for titanium buckle, and the other for black buckle! ::screwloose:: :D

    Yes! :D I had the same “issue” but in different order: I bought first the Calibre 16, and shortly after I also wanted the Calibre 5, and I love both now! ::love::
    It will be more difficult to get the third and last available mechanical module: the Calibre Heuer 02 Tourbillon! :D

    That's an amazing collection! I'm new here and happy to have found this forum. I'm starting to see that I'm late to the party though- there aren't many accessories to be found anywhere without paying over inflated prices.

    Thanks and welcome! :)

    You shouldn’t have problems to order accessories for the Connected Modular (at normal price) at your local TAG Heuer Authorized Dealer, even when replaced by the 3rd generation in 2020.

    I was visiting a nice AD in Stuttgart, and they told me the same as my usual AD in Barcelona: they can order any accessory for the Connected Modular.

    BTW this AD in Stuttgart had some Modular watches in stock:

    Thanks! I've started put a small collection together myself. I scooped up a Kingsman yesterday and can't wait to get my hands on it! ;)

    Here is my current collection consisting of a Kingsman special edition, a titanium/black with titanium strap, and the new connected 45 titanium in black. I never planned on having this much! Time to sell some of it! B4A53E88-014F-4761-A0A6-0CD3AF7132B7.jpeg

    Very nice!

    In that case, please let me now if you want to sell the yellow rubber strap with TH logos, and the pink rubber strap with TH logos! ;) These are missing in my collection! :)

    I know the pink strap is from the Giro d’Italia edition, but I didn’t know the yellow strap with TH logos! :thumbsup:
