    Sinn silicone rubber question

    I'm sure this question has been asked but I can't seem to locate an answer. I picked up this WCT diver several months ago and the previous owner was nice enough to include this Sinn rubber strap with deployant. Unfortunately it is a tad bit too small for my wrist (sized at 7 inches and I'm 7.25). I haven't been able to locate where I can find just the rubber for this. My question is first what Sinn watch was this originally designed for (or what model strap is this) and is there a place I can locate just the rubber without the deployant (preferably just the unbranded piece). Thanks for you time.
    Any light you can shed on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    It looks like it might be from a Sinn U1 or UX or other U series watch. I would check the lug measurement first though. Watchbuys sells the Sinn straps, but online it looks like it comes with a buckle also. I thought I read somewhere that you may be able to call them and ask for a strap without the buckle to save money on that, but it would still have the Sinn branding.

    ^^^everything I've found points to it being from a U1. It's a 22mm lug width. I'll try giving them a call. Thanks.

    Sinn 22mm Silicone strap and clasp combos will fit all 22mm lugged Sinn watches (U1, U2, UX, 757, 857, 900, 903, 956, 958, 1746) except for the U1000 and U1000S, which take a 22mm strap with thicker end pieces.

    Re: Sinn silicone rubber question

    So would it be safe to say sinn makes one black 22mm silicone rubber strap with a curved end? Or are there different types of curved ends such as a more aggressive or less aggressive curve?

    Thanks for the info. I called Watchbuys and ordered just the strap for $100 shipped.

    There are two different 22mm straps, as I mentioned above. The U1000 strap has a thicker end piece and the regular strap fits everything else.

    It's about time WatchBuys started carrying replacement rubber. It was ridiculous to have to buy a new strap and clasp combo because you cut your strap too short.

    Top, do they sell the deployant buckles by themselves? Not listed under the strap/bracelet section.

    stole the Globe, and have been protecting our shores ever since.
