    Excessive sweating rubber strap !

    Its really Impossible to wear my BR03-93 Ceramic in summer with original green rubber. I return at home.. always with a wrist sweaty and macerated...

    So the only solution is buy a new strap in leather and hold the rubber for the winter ?
    Im curios to know the other BR's around for that...
    Thanks,
    Davide

    I guess it depends on the atmosphere, heat, humidity levels and the like. Your body genetics my play a part in this equation also and how much you exercise or perspire in general.

    I do find the rubber a bit sweaty on my wrist but no overly so, but I wear the strap a little loose as I never have liked my straps snug against my skin.

    Have you tried wearing the strap one notch back to create a bit of air movement between the watch, strap and your wrist or would this be too loose for you?

    Leather and canvas can be a good idea as they breathe.

    There is nothing wrong with wearing a quality leather strap for summer providing you do not swim with it.

    Canvas is perfect for summer.
    You should buy the khaki one, in M size (smallest size)

    I got a GasGasBones BRV2 skinny just after I got my watch as I had noticed the issue of excess wrist moisture on hot days pretty quickly.

    YES, depends WHO you are, WHERE you are, and WHAT you are doing!

    I tend to wear leather straps most of the time.
    Try a few options out and see what works best for you....

    In anything at all, perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away.

    sweaty wrists are a pain...i used to wear a rubber watch before and it's a KILLER.

    anyway, kinda off a tangent, but i have a site that talks about excessive sweating, and if you're interested, you can check it out here - howtostopexcessivesweatingnow.com.

    Hope you find these tips helpful
    This feels kinda outta the way in this luxury high end forum but I know that a lot of watch wearers sweat excessively on their arms and this can feel REALLY unpleasant. I've had this problem before, so I have a website on how to stop excessive sweating. Check it out below:

    Hope these tips are as helpful to ya as they were to me.

    No problem of over sweating with mine. I "normally" sweat with it, but i used to wear the watch a bit loose (not too much huh?!) and it might create a difference as air is passing between skin and strap.
    Otherwise the canvas is a good option in summer
