    Bought my AW Series 2 Black Stainless Steel in UK and I have received a 2m long WHITE PLASTIC magnetic charging cable instead of the one with a STEEL frame. Is this normal or?

    My space black Series 2 has the stainless casing around the charging puck. Did you purchase yours new directly from an Apple store or was this a refurbished unit?

    Apple stores no longer sells the Series 2 in store. They were discontinued from the retail stores and online from their website when they announced Series 3 (Aside from the refurbished units available for sale online). When did you purchase this?

    A slightly off-topic question: Why would anyone want a black stainless-steel watch? Black and stainless steel seem to be polar opposites.

    I thought that after two silver SS watches. Try it, and you will see why! Looks great!

    I think what he means is stainless is shiny bright not black.

    Yes, that’s precisely what I mean. Most people who buy stainless steel products like the bright glitter of the material. Why would anyone want black stainless steel?

    I have the black stainless and the stainless. I went for the black stainless because, it looks great. It just happens to have a stainless steel body beneath the DLC coating.

    Then you don't fully understand the elements behind the black stainless steel Apple Watch. It also incorporates the diamond like carbon coating over it, which has a layer of protection that makes it almost impervious to damage. Not to mention, it looks amazing paired with a stainless steel link band or leather band.

    As for your question why would anyone want black stainless steel? Here's a thread that has 50 pages worth for your reading why the others appreciate it.
