We feature two different styles of high tensile silicone watch bands in a variety of colors and widths. The first is a smooth band that includes integrated quick release spring bars and the second is a textured band that includes two traditional spring bars.
All of our bands utilize a specific grade of silicone that is designed for high tensile and tear strength. This rubber can endure a wide range of temperatures and a great deal of force without deforming. However, we are most proud of the feel of our bands. You will find that they are extremely soft to the touch and comfortable on the wrist. We tested a range of hardness levels on the 'Shore A' durometer scale and settled on the one that was the most comfortable without sacrificing any durability. All of our silicone bands also have a textured underside to improve airflow and comfort.
When designing our bands, we studied several statistical analyses on the distribution of wrist sizes among various populations. The result is a band that accommodates not only a wide variety of watch designs, but also wrist circumferences. Our silicone straps are generally designed to fit wrists between 5 1/2 and 8 inches in circumference. However, the size and geometry of the watch will also impact fit. If you are not sure whether a band will fit or not, we encourage you to give it a try as we offer a money back guarantee!
Our watch bands use stainless steel components where others use iron or aluminum. Iron components rust and need to be bulkier and heavier to achieve strength comparable to that of stainless steel. The finish on both treated iron and aluminum parts can weather or wear off, leaving a dull, scrap-metal appearance. If you take a knife to our stainless steel components, you will find a material that 1) is solid all the way through, 2) is difficult to scratch or bend and 3) maintains its initial shine for many years.
