Does anyone know of a source that carries brown rubber deployment straps for panerai?

Would prefer OEM but would entertain either market. I know they offer many color choices for leather but was thinking there may be some intrest for different colors in rubber. May start a new fashion trend,

Have the OEM rubber straps changed in the last couple of years? Mine needs replacing and I've found two that are vastly inferior to the one I have, even in its worn condition with the hole stretched. They aren't soft rubber and feel like cheap silicon. Is it just me? My original strap is darker in color, much softer, springier with one smooth continuous v shaped groove in the center of each section on the back, and has a single wide keeper. The new ones are only slightly similar in looks alone.

All that being said I have to travel to an AD. The two I've purchased were from an individual and from chrono24 online http://www.chrono24.com/en/panerai/bandstrap-rubber-strap--band-for-tang--deployment-buckle--id2125055.htm?id=2125055&picnum=1&tab=pics . Both were purported to be OEM. The first one I accused the seller of sending me a replica, but the one from the retailer was identical. Now I feel bad I made such a fuss about the first one.

The original Straps are not silicone, and should be natural rubber. However they have changed over the years and are manufactured in different places. I think there is some discussion on other forums as to where and which and the differences.

Just realized I never responded to Vjpam88's original question - I don't think Panerai has brown rubber, but I have seen brown rubber aftermarket.

Panatime.com has silicon straps for panerai watches. I have not seen any in person but have had luck with their leather straps. They are very helpful at answering questions you may have about there products.

I personally am not a fan of silicon straps, as they attract dust and don't look as good as natural rubber. They also stick to your wrist when its moist more than natural rubber.
