    I just put a 2 ring Zulu on my Citizen & so far I've been happy with it except for one weird thing...
    When the band gets wet, it gets larger. (looser on my wrist) ???

    Kind of odd for a band designed for divers. Anyone else experience this?

    Mine does too. It's an annoying glitch in an otherwise great band. I think for going in the water, rubber is probably best.

    Mine did the same thing, but not enough that it caused any problems.

    My Zulus and Rhinos also get significantly longer when wet.

    I've read the Waterborne strap is made differently and does not get longer when wet. I don't have one so I can't verify.

    Mine also gets stinky from time to time. Another minor thing about a great watch band.

    I keep an old toothbrush that I use with some liquid soap and I clean the watch band with those in the sink when needed.
