Summary: The band did not come with the two (2) spring bars that the description claims. Looks like this is not the first as other reviewers complained about the missing spring bars. I needed to order the spring bars separately resulting in extra cost and delay. The spring bars should be removed from the Product Features as they are not included with the band !!!!!!!
Summary: This band definitely looks nice, but it is very stiff (think plastic vs rubber). After several weeks of use, it started to mold to fit my wrist somewhat, but it still holds a heavy dive watch (Invicta Pro-diver) off my arm. I eventually got a 20mm band from Luminox (it is for their ladies model, so it won't fit a huge wrist) that is at least 75% more comfortable/flexible. On a positive note, it came with very nice, heavy-duty watch pins.
Summary: This is a nice, solid band. It is slightly different than the band that originally came with the Monster with the main difference being that the rubber is a little stiffer. The bars came with the band and were a good fit. My only complaint, and it is a small one, is that the holes are slightly different than the spacing on the Monster. This creates a little looser (or tighter) fit than I'd prefer, but is no deal breaker. Good for the price.
Summary: The watch band is a good pliable watch band. Replacing the original Luminox Seals series watch band. So far so good. However, the pins that came with it are thicker and heavier than the previous ones. They were not made for the luminox, so do not toss your old ones out. The ones that came with it are high quality and heavy duty. Good over all value for a piece of rubber and two pins.
Summary: I give this 5 stars because it is a great watch band. It is more flexible than the original band, the expansion section gives you a snug fit without chafing, and it appears to be rugged. In fact, I ordered this band for one of my watches because the band broke. After wearing it for a few days I decided to order a second band for another watch, even though the second watch was brand new. Why? Because this is a better band!
Band is great but did not include the springs like the item said it would

Summary: This is a great quality watch band and fits my Seiko black monster perfectly. Arrived in a clear plastic bag and not the one shown in the advertisement and without the band springs. I just wish the springs would have been included like they were supposed to be.
Summary: Saw it, ordered it, received it, and was even able to install it myself. Didn't have to pay some watch guy to do it for me. Love it! Next time I need another one I'll buy from you guys, thanks.
