22 mm curved end rubber strap suggestions?

As the title states, I'm looking for a good black rubber strap to fit my skx007.

I'd like a curved end strap which has that little extra part at the bottom that sits there to ensure there is no gap.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Try Uncle Seiko. He has options for this. I don’t have one for the SKX in particular but I’ve had good luck with his other (non fitted) straps.

Crafter Blue is another good option for SKX and Turtle. I bought the blue version for my SKX009 and I love it.

Definitely another vote for Uncle Seiko. Save you plenty over the Crafter Blue model and just as good quality.

My Crafter Blue curve end rubber strap is very uncomfortable on my 7 1/2 wrist. It presses on my wrist bone, and my Seiko SRP773 doesn’t sit flat. I now have a Barton Elite Silicone strap. However, It’s not a curve end strap.

I agree with your thoughts on the crafter blue. They did not fit my wrist correctly either.

The Barton has undersized spring bars. I would not use that on my Seiko diver.

Watch Gecko in the UK do some really nice rubber straps that go well with the 007....worth checking them out, not expensive either, and the service is terrific.
