    One the thing I like about the Sinn Silicon strap is how it fits against the watch case and is shaped to keep the watch central on the wrist.
    Actually, that's the only thing I like about it. As such, my UX spends its time between an Isofrane and a two piece NATO.
    Now I have another option: The Elliot Brown Rubber that came fitted to my Horton, but is available separately for £55 in the UK and comes in a range of colours.
    It was a moment of 'I wonder if that will fit...' and tbh the spring bar took a bit of a push to get in place, but I think it looks OK. It's comfortable and not as sweaty as the Sinn strap. It also tapers so isn't quite as bulky.Name:  20190118_153652_1547826955940.jpg

    Please bear in mind, as I'm sure you are, that this strap was designed for a different watch and brand. It just happens to fit... and look good!

    Awesome. I was also looking for another option for my UX SDR. I was thinking about ordering a sinn strap with the smaller clasp, but at Sinn US prices I think not.

    This may fit the bill as I like the fitted ends.

    How hard did you have to push to on the rubber strap to get the pins to click in? the Sinn need a bit of pushing to fit also.

    I'm normally not a fan of a silicone strap, but this Elliot Brown really has me intrigued. I'm sure I'll end up with one some where down the road.

    A bit more difficult than the Sinn rubber, but easy enough.
