This is probably about the fifth covered watch band I’ve had. They used to be easy to find at Post Exchanges and clothings sales on military bases where you could see if it was going to work. This doesn’t work as well as most of the others and is better looking and probably more durable. They all have some ungainly bulges and expose the hook side of the hook and loop fasteners. My mistake was not getting the wider band for a watch 1 7/8” wide. The bands work well for protecting your watch while performing rough stuff, keep the bad guys from seeing glare from the crystal and preventing mysterious glows on the ceiling during meetings. They are all best at covering your watch, not so good at looking at your watch. A metal band can complete an electrical circuit, which even in 12 volt system could easily produce 1400 watts. That’ll leave a mark. The price is probably twice as much as any before and shipping was free.
