We’re taking a closer look behind the benefits of a curved end watch band versus a straight end watch band. There’s always two sides to choose from, one or the other. The curved end design Everest launched in 2014 closed the gap between the watch band and watch case for Rolex sports models. Since then, Everest has expanded into Tudor watch models and Panerai watch models. Utilizing both 316L patented steel end link and a permanent embedded plastic insert, Everest watch bands offer a custom look. There are multiple reasons to choose the curved end design over the straight end design.

So, why choose the curved end? A curved end watch band connects directly to the watch case that creates a flawless aesthetic appearance. Everest’s advanced movements in watch band technology have allowed Rolex, Tudor and Panerai watch owners to create a custom look. Everest Bands focuses on keeping the essence of the watch. Only the highest quality material is used to uphold the quality of the Swiss watch the watch band is installed upon. 

Additionally, Everest has ensured the curved end connects without jarring or gaping. So, strap up your Rolex Submariner with your choice of Everest rubber watch band to create your custom look with confidence. And, don’t forget to share your wrist shots with us @everestbands. Everest Bands’ innovation, technology and design come from fellow watch guys. 

Some of the few benefits beyond aesthetics is with the lack of gap there is no chance of something getting caught between the watch band and watch case. There is no build up of skin, dirt or other materials. While some straight end watch bands do not have a thick gap, some offer a smaller gap.

While Everest is behind the curved end watch band movement for Rolex, Tudor and Panerai, we understand not everyone has the option for a curved end yet. You can always find a well-made straight end watch band to preserve your watch bracelet. The best benefit of a straight end watch band is that you can really not go wrong with the fit if you know your lug width. Whether it's 18mm, 20mm, 22mm or another measurement, there are quite a few options available. However, there is also the possibility that some watch bands have too much material between the spring bar hole and the end of the watch strap in contrast to the space between the watch case and spring bar holes.

While there are benefits to straight end watch straps, if you really want to customize your Swiss watch to the level it deserves, choose Everest’s Swiss-made curved end watch bands. You can read more about the specific curved end technology for the different straps here.

Everest has been able to accomplish manufacturing curved end straps in a FKM rubber material, Italian vegetable tanned leather material, perforated leather material, and a durable nylon material.
