    Anyone in the U.S. get a link band and need a couple? I took a few out.

    Now there's a problem I hadn't thought of ... can you even order extra links by themselves at present?

    I figured for now there will be enough spare links going around that we can take care of each other and save our friends from needing to wait out being able to comfortably wear their new watches.

    Apple gives a range for each band. Not sure if they'll make extra links available for those with wrists larger than 205mm, but we'll see. Easier to just have them sold / swapped on here I think. :)

    Oh, jdcrow711 - which size is your watch? I wonder if the links near the clasp are the same for the 38mm and 42mm?

    That's nice but do you really want to ruin your chance of ever selling your link bracelet to those bigger than you?

    Not to sound selfish here, but I'm keeping every single link even if I don't need them to fit, in case one scratches then I can replace it with my extras.

    Or sell the link bracelet. Being able to recoup your cost isn't selfish.

    If they don't sell extra links there will be a market somewhere and that person can figure it out. Why not help someone... I have no intention on getting rid of it now

    Not to worry extra space black links will be available on eBay after the watch is introduced.

    Resurrecting an old thread here, but I recently bought a space black 42mm apple watch with the link band. It fits, but honestly I could use an extra link or two for a little more comfort. Of course, now Apple offers the silver stainless steel bank links, but not space black.

    Does anyone have any idea where I can get a couple extra links? Anyone have some they're looking to sell?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Check the For Sale thread in this forum. Maybe put a Wanted Ad in there. If not eBay has been know to have extra SB links.

    Damnit... I have some, but with all of the stories of people having theirs wear away the finish on individual links, I kind of see them as insurance now. I'm sure Apple will offer the SB links eventually, just like they now offer the bracelet (which they didn't originally).

    I don't blame you one bit. If I were on the opposite end of this problem, I'm positive I would hang on to mine.

    I've checked eBay, even have a saved search that will notify me. But all I find is the normal SS links.

    I'm optimistic that Apple will offer the SB links at some point. But it wouldn't surprise me one bit either if they never do. Just have to wait and see.

    Thanks!
