    I'm thinking on getting a Link Bracelet to use on formal occasions with my Apple Watch Sport but I'm worried about how this combination would look so I thought I ask around here if anyone had this particular mesh that would like to share pics with me. For anyone who might wonder why I chose the sport model instead of opting for the SS to begin with, I personally love the aluminum finish on the watch and I mainly use the watch as a fitness tracker with smartwatch capabilities. It's only downside is that the sport bands aren't exactly elegant in formal settings. Also don't value the SS look on the watch enough to warrant the extra cost. However I really love this particular band. Thank you.

    Hopefully the pictures help ya decide on the band, it's amazing looking and of course, it would look even better on the SS, but it's looks pretty good on the Sport too!

    I might possibly upgrade to the SS in the next gen, just because of the fact that bands like this and the Milanese loop will blend much better together, but for now, this works well enough for me :)

    Thank you so much for the pictures. The contrast isn't that bad between the aluminum and stainless steel as I was afraid, specially from the front. Is it depending on the lighting effect or it really looks that good as in the pictures?

    I personally think it looks amazing in person, if you haven't already, go to an Apple shop to judge it in person, because it's one of those things you gotta decide on after seeing and messing around with it.

    I got my Link Bracelet from CEX (second hand shop in the UK) and it was the lowest grade of quality according to them, which was C Grade, it has little scratches on it and over the clasp, but that's it, it's in pretty great condition, and i got it for £100! :D

    Thanks so much for sharing. I sadly don't have any Apple stores nearby so I will have to get the band and try it out during its return window. I'm definitely keeping a eye out at CEX for the band. Just ordered from them a classic buckle for my watch and since this is the first time I have ordered from them I'll see how the experience is like.

    I bought a clone on eBay, it's a 4th gen model which has quick release links just like Apple. It's beautiful and feels great and I only paid $87 image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    Can you provide me with the link to eBay? I would like to see it more closely. My problem so far has been that the third party bands have looked kinda cheap for my liking. Your space grey with band looks gorgeous.
