    Assuming there would be third party bands, what would you like to see and purchase? I also gathered a list for which brands design you will likely purchase.

    Rolex
    Omega
    Bretling
    IWC
    Patek Phillips
    Panerai
    Audemars Piquet
    TAG Heuer
    Jaeger-LeCoultre
    Cartier
    Other

    Aftermarket 3rd party leather bands, like those made for panerai. Though suited to an apple watch and not the bigger panerai watches

    Personally, I wouldn't even consider buying a luxury brand watch strap to put on my Apple Watch, even if I'd bought the SS version. For me, they're very different pieces, the Apple watch is still a gadget, my Raymond Weil watch is still jewelry and I'll be keeping the two styles separate.

    Apple band pricing is in the jewellery range ;) , it's cheaper to buy the luxury strap.

    That's a fair point! But either way, the most I'll spend is like £30 on a third party (p)leather strap if/when they appear on eBay and Amazon, to make it look slightly more professional for work

    I'd like to be able to use a strap from http://natostrapsco.com , but the strap would cover the sensors on the back of the watch.

    Do you know where you could purchase Nixon bands? I'd love to pick up some of their leather bands.

    I have used Omega bands. It's good though and serve well.

    I have yet to see a third party offering that looked anything but cheap to me.

    unfortunately I do not know where to buy just the bands. I have both of these watches and love them, but have no idea how I could even try to use the bands with a apple watch.
