I wanted to get some divers' opinions on the best straps for dive watches?

I’m currently working on an exciting project to design a watch strap made from upcycled wetsuit materials (effectively recycling my old wetsuit to make a watch strap) and wanted to see if anyone had any tips or recommendations for this? Not sure if this has been done before but personally think it’s a really cool idea (and great for the environment of course!).

When diving, what types of watch straps do people prefer? - rubber, steel? I know these things are usually personal preference (as with most diving stuff) but keen to get peoples thoughts on this!?
