I would call it off-white myself. I think it's the same color as the old firefighter helmets and cuffs, not really cream but not bright white.

Not forgetting the natural tendency of playmobil to go yellow....

But I think that affects the hard ABS plastic more, I'm not sure if these belts are made of a plastic less prone to yellowing?

At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

The Duerer is brand new while the chieftain is from maybe ten years ago, yet their belts are identical in colour, so I would wager that the yellowing hasn't affected them yet.
