    Well, I do have to say that I am impressed with what the adapter/band combos that I purchased from a USA seller on eBay. I paid $16.61 for each "kit".

    I was a bit frustrated at first as my order was marked as shipped for 7 days before it actually shipped, but I think the seller just had some supply issues that were unforeseen. They always answered my questions right away about the delays, so that was nice. The band is cheap and feels hard plasticky, but feels fine on my wrist. I'm just happy now to have an adapter and screwdriver, so I can put any watch band I want on.

    It was shipped out on Monday evening and arrived here today. Pictures are below... and please excuse my freckles :p

    If you like, here is a link to the seller - you should have it within a week if you are in the states: http://www.ebay.com/itm/28168622777...49&var=580691280119&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    It's my husbands, so once he gets it and puts it on, I'll take some photos. Also, not that it matters, but it's a dark navy blue color - looks kinda black though.

    The band looks sharp and looks good on your wrist.

    What did you do to that poor watch?

    Beat me to it. That's just a terrible thing to do....

    No I didn't spray paint it - I covered it in gold glitter glue.

    Kidding.

    It's a skin that I'm trying out. Got it a week or so ago and still debating whether or not to keep it on.

    Taking it off right now. Just for you. Because you have to look at every day, I know. And the photos show exactly what it looks like.

    That's all I ask.

    Maybe not. But they do show that the digital crown doesn't match the rest of the watch. They also show that your adapter is stainless steal, which you can get away with if you have the anodized aluminum finish, but not gold. It just looks craptacular. #sorrynotsorry
