    I was able to follow the directions posted on YouTube by Unbox Therapy to switch out my Classic Buckle leather band to a nice 22mm solid link stainless steel band. Apple asks $449 for theirs. I picked up this one from Amazon along with the screwdriver for only $80. Turned out pretty good I think!

    I just watched the video and it seems pretty straight forward. Thanks!

    Nice job! I assume we could use something like Click to accomplish the same thing.

    Very nice. I am actually impressed by this. I think I will do the same although I wouldn't mind exploring more stainless bands as I already have a Tissot with a similar style.

    Nice!

    What size is your watch 38mm??

    Does 22mm work for both 38mm and 42mm?

    This looks better than Click does though... Wish Click wasnt so clunky.

    Really? That band looks like hell compared to the Apple link band. Why would you want to make your $700 Apple watch look like a POS Pebble Steel.

    In order for this to work you need to start with the Apple watch with leather band but can I now buy the leather band and use this method?

    I saw that same band and wanted to do the same thing but was worried it wouldn't look good on the leather band adapter rods. I really don't think in my opinion that it looks good. Not to mention a 42 mm SS with Classic is $700 plus $80 for the setup you have is $780 vs $1,000 for the Apple Link. Not enough savings to warrant it when it doesn't look that good to me. But I'm glad someone else did it as I would have wanted to and I don't think it does.

    That looks great! Can somebody send that pic to Angela so that Apple can offer something like this to us? I love the band!
