    I love the grey and yellow one but fifty quid? I'm not sure I love it that much! It somehow seems much more than an extra tenner. (And I know it's nothing in the greater scheme of what Brexit will mean but that doesn't make it any less annoying.)

    Having now seen the grey and yellow one I'd no longer be tempted by it even without the 25% price rise; it looks much nicer on screen.

    LOL at "Space Orange". Seriously, are they even trying any more in the marketing department at Apple?

    Target has some of the nylon bands on their website now that show gold clasps for the royal blue, gold/red, and gold/royal blue colors. I'm not sure if these product pics are correct or not but you could maybe order one and see.

    I have that band and the naming is actually correct. It simply mixes orange with dark grey but that gives you the name Dark Orange and that is most definitely not the colour of this band (it's bright orange with dark grey threads woven through it). Since Apple uses "Space Grey" for their dark grey products the name "Space Orange" reflects the actual colour much better. The thing that doesn't make much sense is the "/Anthracite" part of the name until you flip the band (the overall colour is now dark grey (or anthracite) with hints of orange).

    I find the name "Toasted Coffee/Caramel" more difficult because toasted coffee differs greatly in colour (it depends on the kind of toasting and how long). There was a post from someone who bought it and found this one to be a light kind of brown. Looks like it is more caramel than toasted coffee.

    You really need to see them in person. The pictures on the Apple site don't always resemble the actual colours that very well.

    that's probably why. i have the 38MM. the nylon band was really short. i need the 2nd to last hole. there wasn't enough nylon left to tuck into the clasp.
