    Why didn't Apple make the dark buckle of the black nylon band available on all the colored versions? I think the silver aluminum of the colored band buckle looks strange with the dark aluminum of the space gray case watch. Apple is all about bands and options, so why make only the dark band match with the dark Watch?

    Leather loops only have silver buckles, sports bands only have silver pins, classic/saddle only have silver lugs and buckles, nylon only silver buckles, etc.

    You really need to go third party to get a decent band collection if you went space grey or space black, IMO.

    Agreed. There are way more third-party options on the market then there are Apple Watch OEM bands.

    If you want lots of band options, then the stainless steel model is the most versatile watch. If you don't care for the leather or metal bands, then the silver aluminum band is the second most versatile.

    The black steel watch is somewhat versatile with 2 metal bands, a sport band, and a nylon band available for it. Why Apple doesn't make a leather band for the space black watch, I don't understand.

    I'm ok with the black watch only having one band color option. I find the solid black look to be very sleek, but a leather option is sorely needed.

    The worst ones are the gold and Rose gold options. You get the band Apple bundles for you and nothing more.

    With The black stainless steel watch, there are quite a few options for bands to pair it with. Leather, sport bands and the link bracelets offer quite a few of options to pair with it.
