Has anyone seen apple watch bands that look similar to a g-shock watch? I'm looking for a black band that's wider than the sports band. Any suggestions?

People will need to know which watch you have, 38mm or 42mm, and more importantly what size lugs you will be using (need to know interior dimension and outside lug dimension in mm).

For example here's a Casio band that has an inside lug measurement of 20mm and outside lug measurement of 27mm:

Here's a band with inside lug of 20mm and outside of 23.5mm:

Do you have lug adapters yet?

I didn't see any Casio g shock bands when I looked that offered an interior measurement greater than 20mm.

Found these 24mm bands for Bell & Ross, similar style to the Casio g shock:

From timepiecerepublic, 24mm width at buckle and pin area at case. These are 205mm total band length and come with buckle.

This seller, nextrend, has a shorter black version, 195mm total band length, and his diagram shows that this band width at the outside lug area is 34mm. Buckle and lug pins not included.

If you like this band, the questions would be 1) can you find a lug that you like to work with the band and 2) what length band works for you.

The Apple watch adapter is basically 34mm from end to end at the very top of it installed (width of the 42mm watch essentially). Unfortunately no one makes a lug I've seen that comes straight down from the side of the watch. All curve inward. So that means the above bands will extend out to the sides and have a weird gap.
