    New band for Suunto Elementum

    First post, hello all. I have had my silver Elementum Terra for 5 some odd years and am looking to upgrade the stock black rubber band to something slightly more work apropos. Leather would work, but not going to shy away from metal (Although I think the stock metal band looks ”off” somehow...).

    What do any of you guys have? Any photos appreciated

    Cheers

    Here's the OEM leather:



    Makes me think they're using a larger spring bar slot, to deform properly to the bar/slot without undue strain.

    You can go this way, or hunt for curved-end straps...start by determining the lug width. Options for curved-end straps are pretty sparse, tho. Might have to go custom. I'd go with something distressed, nubuck, or suede, in black, very dark brown, or tan/wheat. Nothing glossy at all.
    The truth is rarely pure and never simple.
