Hi

Just curious if there are any long term users of the SB ML? There are some negative experiences reported here, but I am looking to hear from long term satisfied users.

I love mine. Had it since Series 4 launch.
Super comfortable fit and no scratches (I got loads on my non-SB ML.

I’ve been wearing it pretty much solidly since I got it.

I’d definitely buy another if they changed the design of the Watch at any point.

I wore mine for about a year after it came out, and really liked it. I still wear it quite a lot, but I fell back in love with my SB Link so that is what I’m wearing predominantly at the moment.

I had mine for two years, the first year was uncomfortable, but once it pulled out all the hair that got stuck in it it started being comfortable...

In other words, if you have hairy arms, you'll have issues the first few months.

Which watch are you using to go with the SB ML?

Been using SBML on my SBSS for over a year. I don’t have real hairy arms so no issue with that. It’s very comfortable. I’ve had it for over a year. Hasn’t scratched my watch. Highly recommend especially at the new price.

I have had a stainless steel since series 0 and I have never worn another band except Milanese. It’s my favorite.

I have a silver Milanese in my collection that I wear about once a week. I absolutely love how it shimmers in the light when I move my wrist. About once a year I put a dab of liquid soap on an old toothbrush and scrub it down. It looks as good as new and it’s about 3 years old.

I had the silver ML for a bit but it kept pulling my hair so I returned it. Also it looks too much like jewelry for me and I much prefer my SB link bracelet.

No problem. I thought you might have cleaned it.
