    I have the AW Series 2 aluminium in gold and am looking to get matching lugs to use with some 3rd party bands. I've seen very mixed reviews on amazon for certain products, the majority of which deal with poor colour matching.

    Has anyone managed to find a well suited set of lugs?

    Thanks!

    The customer service over at Clockworksynergy is absolutely awesome! (you may even save a few $ by getting the lugs with one of their bands) :)

    If it's not a perfect match and you want to return it, I know they'll do so hassle free. I have several of their nylon bands. :) (space black watch).

    Clockworksynergy is great. I have the old black chrome ones from my original Apple Watch and they look pretty good and fit awesome on my silver series 2

    Clockwork Synergy bands are my favorite 3rd party bands. The gold adapters are a good match for the gold Apple Watch.

    I'm interested in the fit compared to the genuine SS apple lugs and how the color matches to the Space Black stainless steel.

    The fit is good, can't really tell the difference from the original lugs in the fit department. The lugs I have are space gray, not space black and the color match wasn't perfect but quite close. I don't even have a space gray watch anymore so these are just sitting in my desk drawer.

    I will tell you that if you read the reviews you'll see people complaining about the screws coming loose on these and the way to avoid that is blue lock tight on the screws (the gel type works better).

    Any interest in the space gray lugs? Maybe we could work something out (you are selling a time capsule that I'd love to have).
