    I went into the Apple Store, jus for a look see, when I saw that gold I was had. I has a warmth about it that's dazzling,
    yet not overbearing and its not gaudy. Look in all honesty I just bought the ss space black series3 not too long ago.
    But I guess I will sadly be a sucker for the series 4. The gold does have a PVD coating which should make it durable.
    Maybe not as durable as the DLC on the ss space black but it should be ok. Besides if u plan on wearing it to the gym just put one of those bumpers on it. The decision will be the 40 or the 44 the 40 looks quite sufficient

    Lucky for you I just sold my old watch with the link (third party one though) on eBay but I haven’t mailed it yet, so here are the pics you requested!

    In my opinion, it doesn’t look too bad! Definitely passable but that’s very subjective.

    But I’d prefer it if I had a black stainless or a matching gold one. I have way too many bands and I’ll probably end up waiting for a matching gold third party.

    Thanks! Somehow this made my decision even harder.

    Love the steel look. Little regretful I didn't get that and chose the SG Alum.
    Wanted to exchange..was hopeful by now one of the stores in my area would have a SS Silver 44mm, 8 days later...not yet.

    VERY limited models - just 2 in Silver SS, that's the darn problem I think - with high demand still, perhaps higher after one week.

    Either get the Silver SS with white sports band or drop more $$$ for the Steel with the milanese loop. I already have that band.

    The Gold SS case is NOT as tacky as I thought after seeing it yesterday in person, it did looks smudged, borderline tarnished though - just shows a ton of people touched it, tried it on.

    I've done this...BUT I did it maybe 30-40 minutes before the store closed, the one Apple employee had no problem with it.

    If it's an insane nuthouse (like 90min before close yesterday - and its a weekend), that option might be tough. I ran into a few employees yesterday that were flat out miserable, perhaps tired and burned out from the past week...who knows. I think if you find a cool employee, you'll be fine.

    You’re welcome y’all. In case it helps anyone, here is my gold SS with the original Milanese loop. I was about to sell off this loop in preparation to buy the gold one but I think I’ll keep it now haha. So this exercise of taking pics of the watch helped me too. :)

    PS It would be cool if there was a single unified thread or post with nothing but various band combos for the SS gold watch, since there’s a few that are around and it’ll be hard to find them all in the future.

    You might have convinced me. It doesn't look... spectacular, bit its definitely passable. I wonder if I could find a trading partner for my SS link band for someone with the black link band.
