I'm still stuck between Milanese Loop or Classic buckle for the SS watch. Leather: Pros: - Both ends that meet the watch are symmetrical - Classic look - More secure clasp Cons: - plain looking - Leather durability is questionable. - end of band will/can poke out if caught on something (sport band eliminates this by tucking the band under at the end). Milanese: Pros: - Flashy - Looks like chainmail! - Water or sweat should not compromise durability of the band. Cons: - how strong are the magnets? Can bumping into something unlatch it? - One end of the band meets the watch at a loop making it asymmetrical in looks. (this kind of bugs me) Every time I feel convinced of the Milanese Loop I see a video of it and it doesn't look as good as the pictures. Saw a video of the leather band and it looks great.
