I really like the look of this band but they say it is for 150-200mm wrists so I did not order it. My wrist is right at 200mm circumference and I didn't want to buy a C$919 watch that had issues staying "latched".

Has anyone received a 42 w/ Milanese bracelet yet and if so can you comment on the fit for larger wrists?

it will fit a fairly large wrist no problem. if anything, it will be too big for a smaller wrist.

I have 185 mm and there is a lot of room to spare on it. The clasp closes very tightly so there wont be any movement once you get it set to how you like it. I say go for it for a 200mm wrist... it will fit with a lot of room to spare.

The whole band is magnetic I have a 215mm wrist, and it fits great. I can have it snug, or loose, or anywhere in between.

With a 200mm wrist you'll be golden. Go for it man!

My wrist is 170 and the 42mm milanese clasps more than half way to the other side so i think it will be totally fine for a large wrist. Not so much for a small wrist.

It's huge. And firs anywhere . I have 185mm wrist and have tons of room I'd guess it could go as high as 240mm

Same here. I think it's one of the most flexible band choices because it's infinitely adjustable.

I have a 210mm wrist and it fits easily. I imagine it can take a 230mm wrist.

I have one as well and the entire band is magnetic. Fitting your wrist shouldn't be a problem. If you are by an Apple Store, you can try all the bands on before you buy to see how it fits and feels.

My wrist is 210mm and it easily fits. I'm sure it would fit up to a 220mm wrist. Enjoy it!

I am the OP on another thread now running, which concerns the slipping of this band. I would not recommend the Milanese loop for a large or small wrist. I am The band is very attractive, but the magnet is not powerful enough to keep it in place. It will slip in the course of everyday activities, and you will be constantly adjusting it if you want it to stay on your wrist.

I have a large wrist (so large the Leather Loop wouldn't stay latched because the magnets didn't line up) so I changed to the Milanese Loop and it works perfectly. My magnet stays where I place it and does not slip or adjust during the day.

I believe it all depends on where you place the band. If you wear it above the wrist bone, toward the hand, ithe magnet will slip. However if you wear it below the wrist bone, toward the arm, it has nowhere to slip to so that will stay secure.

I'm buying the milanese SS end of september.

love the look of it and will get a sport band for the gym as well

Save your money and just get the one with the sport band first. I originally got the Milanese loop version but in the end, I've been using the sport band more as I find it way more comfortable and easier to use. Plus, if you get the Milanese loop separately later, you get a nice case for it too.

That's what my wife and I did. Milanese Loop covers all the occasions where you are dressing up. Sports band when you are working out or going really casual.

I agree with this. I am shocked how much I enjoy the sports band. I got the white and black and really love the SS look with the white.

Not in my case, I wear it at the wrist, not on my lower arm.
Here is my result from trying the Leather Loop:

The Apple Store originally "fitted" me for Leather Loop since Sports Band was too short. After my Leather Loop popped open (because on my large wrist magnets didn't line up) and watch fell, Apple replaced my watch, refunded my Leather Loop and gave me the Milanese Loop for free.

I am not having any slippage issues with my Milanese Loop either.
