I had a try-on appointment at North Michigan Avenue in Chicago and used all 15 minutes of it. It was a good experience. A person with a British accent walked me through several models. A few observations: 38mm is a good choice for most people. It looked better on my 165mm wrist than the 42mm. The associate said lots of people started out wanting the 42 but ended up wanting the 38. He hadn't seen anyone yet go in the other direction. The classic band is fairly masculine, and a good choice for a "professional" look. It's tasteful and not flashy at all. From a distance it looks like a plain rectangular watch. For women I think the modern buckle looks the most "professional," particularly in black or dark blue. I had no difficulty getting the watch to fit underneath a shirt sleeve. The Milanese Loop is a little difficult to put on, since you need to slide your hand through the loop. The metal tab does not slide out (i.e. you cannot undo the loop). However, it's easy to adjust and the magnet is tight. It is also "professional" looking. The link band is very heavy. John Gruber exaggerated a bit by calling the sport band "luxurious," but it feels pretty sturdy and nicer than I expected. Overall, the try-on confirmed in my mind that I made the right choice with the 38mm classic band. I'll probably get the Milanese loop. I ordered a link band, too, but am not sure I'll keep it. I'll try again when it arrives.
