Im not in one of the launch countries, so I got my Watch by buying it overseas and then having a friend deliver it to me. Without being able to try on, my first pick was the Milanese Loop, but I couldnt get that in the first range of shipment dates, so I went for the Classic Buckle. Im not a watch wearer and I suppose the Classic Buckle is pretty nice, but putting it on and taking it off just once made me feel like I should have stuck with the Milanese one instead. I think the magnetic closure of the Milanese Loop (or the magnetic clasp of the Modern Buckle) would have been so much more convenient. I love the iPads Smart Cover and sometimes take it off while using my iPad because its so convenient to take off and put on. Feel like I would enjoy doing this with my Watch band, especially when letting my friends try it on. The Classic Buckle, on the other hand, is decidedly old school and feels clumsy to put on and take off. I even feel like I should have gone for the Sport band instead since thatd be water resistant at least and I could use it for exercise. I think there are a few Classic Buckle fans here and I wonder what their thoughts are. Seems to me like the Modern buckle would be much nicer except for the price simply for the magnetic clasp. I know theres an exchange programme but I think Id have to bring the thing back to HK and then back again. Oh well, hope it grows on me soon.
