    Review of the Elliot Brown fitted strap on a Sinn UX SDR

    Good Day,

    My Elliot Brown fitted strap has arrived. I will do a little review on the strap, and also compared to the Sinn rubber strap and the Isofrane rubber strap.

    Firstly, lets look at the quality of the Elliot Brown strap. It is a very nicely designed fitted rubber dive strap. Excellent quality throughout.

    How well does it fitt on a Sinn UX? As you can see from the pictures, the strap profile on the fitted end is extremely close to the Sinn rubber strap.

    It takes a bit of "pushing the strap in towards the watch body" to get the pins to click in place. I think this is due more to the Elliot Brown strap being

    a different rubber compound, (not Silicone rubber), and being a bit stiffer. Once installed, the strap fits perfectly. Looks great as well. I have a 7.25" wrist

    and the strap fits on the 4'th hole from the tip of the strap. This would not fit well on a 7.5" wrist as far as I can tell. Comfort is very good.

    The strap is thinner and tapered, without the large Sinn type deployment. I quite like this strap as I think it is a great alternative for a fitted strap.

    In comparison to an Isofrane strap, the big differences are that the Elliot Brown strap has fitted ends. The Isofrane strap has the adjustment holes closer together

    and therefore offers better / finer adjustment capabilities, and the Isofrane strap is longer. Both straps are comfortable, with the Isofrane winning out by a small margin.

    When it comes to looks, IMO, the Elliot Brown strap wins hands down, mainly due to the fitted ends.

    Overall, the Elliot Brown strap is an interesting option for the Sinn U series of watches, for those who want an alternative to the Sinn large deployments and Silicone rubber straps.

    One thing though is that as the strap has fitted ends, you will not be able to lay the watch down flat as the strap rubber will not swivel. Wether this is an issue is simply a matter of personal taste.

    Bottom line for me is that I like this strap on my Sinn UX SDR.

    Thanks for the review! The strap looks pretty substantial in combination with the watch.

    It is substantial enough to hold the watch in place properly, yet thinner than the Sinn strap.

    I beleive it is available in 20mm as well.

    Looks good. Shame about the length. Been looking for alternatives, but am cursed with a large 8.25” wrist.

    How is the thickness of the EB compared to Sinn rubber strap?

    Sorry, I reread your review and see you mentioned the EB is thinner. Would you be able to post a side by side shot of the EB versus the Sinn? Thx
