    I would try looking at some leather bands (Brown, black, blue), Those will all easily pair with the gold Apple Watch. If you don’t want to spend the money on Apples OEM bands, there are plenty of third-party options as well for much cheaper price.

    My favorite bands for my gold S3 are:
    -Pink sand
    -Lavender
    -Olive

    I’m currently on the hunt for
    -Cocoa
    -Concrete

    All of my bands have the gold pin except Olive.

    I don't love the apple leather or nylon with the gold because of the mismatched hardware. I tend to think neutrals like white or cocoa really make the gold pop. But ultraviolet is also great. And the orange sport loop looks good, as do the new pastel ones. I'm loving the marine green.

    I honestly don’t really notice it and I’m usually a stickler for things matching. Matter of fact when I got my first leather band I thought I’d end up returning it. I would love for pole to sell matching lugs at some point tho

    Is it 38 or 42? I want all the ones that you can find with the gold pin, but I'm thinking there was only 38 with that pin. But not sure.

    i’m almost 100% sure the lavender band with the rose gold pin was only released on the 38mm. i think they released the 42mm with the stone colored band.

    Yeah I had that 42mm rose gold with stone. I've found cocoa and pink sand (mine came with loop) and stone (bc I sold mine with the watch) and midnight on eBay. All with gold or rose gold.

    Yeah, the mint is really good. Similar to the marine green, but the marine green has a touch more blue in it.

    does anyone have any suggestions of generic bands that have gold hardware that match the s3? i’ve found a few on amazon, but i’m hoping to get more so i can look a little more professional at work!

    Clockwork synergy.... Get the rose gold, not the gold. There are some good sellers on etsy.

    I got this “Milanese Loop” one from Amazon for $12.99. Took a chance and it matches new gold S3 perfectly. No magnet issues either...this is my ‘classy’ watch band, lol, since all I have are Sports and Nike Sports.

    I have the Walcase one. Looks just like that, and I’m happy with mine too.
