    since I had both link bracelets around, I decided to mix the two colors together for some fun and I'm really liking the look of how the colors alternate with each other.

    I call this the "I spent way too much money on my watch band" combo! :D

    I own both the stainless and black stainless links. The combination wouldn't be for me. But Maybe half and half would be interesting to see.

    I like this! Wish the league title was achievable.

    I have also mixed the midnight blue the my cloud band in support of my other team Real Madrid . Yes American football (soccer) fan here. Can't have just one team right?

    Still a bit of a way to go, but hoping we can catch Chelsea :) And thanks for the 84m for Bale

    Agree! I think we can, but Chelsea needs to slip. We look really strong right now. Read an article saying this might the strongest 11 in football right now.

    Haha your very welcome! He is my favorite player. After watching him at Tottenham, I was excited to see him at Real. It has been a good thing for Tottenham for sure. Wish I could see either of them play on their summer tours in the US, but they aren't coming to Atlanta. Why I don't know with the brand new stadium.

    I like the looks of my SS with a rose gold Hoko link bracelet.

    When I had a space grey sport I also enjoyed that with the rose gold.

    So how does this look? An all silver band until about 4 links or less on either end of the clasp alternating silver/black? Because we can't swap the links near the Watch, and I doubt anyone has wrists/links big enough to have more than 4 removeable links on either side of the clasp

    I have both the stainless and black stainless link bracelets. I'm tempted to try it, but I don't think the overall blend would be for me. I see quite a few people have two different colored Sport bands paired with their Apple Watch too.

    I do too, but I'm asking the OP how his looks because he says the colours alternate. With the amount of removeable links, you'd only be able to add 2-3 of the opposite colour to alternate links. Otherwise, mixing it like people do with sports bands would leave you with one whole half with a silver or black clasp and the other small half being a different colour. Wouldn't be a fan of that either though

    I know someone already asked for it, but I'll echo and say that I'd really love to see some photos of what this looks like.

    I tried it, didn't look as good as I had imagined.

    I also found the steel links scratch very easily. My space black links are all still pristine.

    And you at least didn't post pictures of it for the rest of us to see! Even if it didn't look good, we were all waiting to for you to post pictures of it.

    If you have the photo, you can upload them and link them in. There are three buttons below the reply box: Post Reply, Upload a File, and More Options. Hit "upload a file" and the forum should guide you through the rest.

    Looks OK but it would cost me C$1400 + Tax to do that. I don't think I'll be dropping that kind of coin.

    Thanks for posting the picture. I wouldn't personally combine my Stainless and black stainless link after seeing this, but it certainly looks interesting.
