I bought this particular band for the contrast stitching, the fact that is was not leather and because the band was wider at the watch connection that the lug width. The texture of the silicone is excellent including on the inside where there is a very nice grooved diagonal pattern. The finish of the band and the buckle is flawless. The contrast stitching is not overly bright. I'm very happy.
Great blend of quality, style and cost. Looks very durable and also comfortable.
I have this style band on two of my go-to everyday "beater" watches. This one is particularly nice looking with my modded 7s26 diver with red hands and red Pepsi bezel and dull black Ceracote case. Very comfortable and waterproof too. Love it!
