    It was an exciting time, wasn't it? A new category of product from Apple. Like many here, I was lucky to get a SS Classic Buckle 42mm on day one.

    My biggest complaint is charging. It's messy. How do I lay the watch, the enormous cable, etc? I don't want to scratch the watch, I don't want it to fall, etc. There must be a better solution, and I'm surprised Apple is not offering a dock of some kind outside the Edition models.

    I am tempted to return for a cheaper model, but perhaps it will continue to grow on me. As I think of it more and more as a watch/jewelry and not gadget first, I'm enjoying it more.

    The charging I'm not too happy with yet though.

    I second this. Or you could get one of those slip-proof matts or a leather may they use in watch stores and charge it over that?

    Same here. Until/if I find a better answer, I'm using the bottom half of the SS box. Felt lined, heavy enough, has the groove to hold the watch from moving. Best answer for a while. And perhaps one reason the box is so heavy!

    I did that but the magnet in the charger also attaches to the milanese loop and I don't want anything to scratch :D

    I am not using the box to charge my watch. I just have the charging puck laying on my nightstand and the watch is parallel to my phone. Seems to work just fine.

    I plugged the charger in, and connected to the back of the watch?

    Pretty simple? Anyone having difficulty should probably stick to just asking other people the time.
