Ever since my first Series 0 i wanted an Apple link bracelet. And final’y the year i decide to buy one a new apple watch, Apple stops doing Space Black stainless steel watchs...

I got the graphite one andjust received my Space black Link bracelet and im really not sure if I like it..

from far away it looks good but and i look closesly i definîty can notice the difference in colour.

What do you think? Does it look really noticable??

i was thinking of trading in my Milenese Graphite watch for a Hermes single tout Space black...just for the colour

I think it looks great. I got the graphite SS and paired it with the black Milanese loop from two years ago. The SBSS doesn’t match the link band perfectly either. The SBSS is shiny and the link band has a dull finish. However, if your not sure now and keep the SBSS and black link you might regret it once the newness wears off. I don’t think the SBSS Hermès is a good value no matter how much disposable income one has.

Since the graphite finish is so versatile concerning its color depending on surrounding lighting I think it's a good match and if you like your bracelet you should go on and wear it

I think it works personally. And mainly because the graphite kind of morphs colors a little bit. I was one that paired the space black link bracelet with the regular stainless steel watch keeping Apple Watch just to be ‘different’ from everyone else. The contrast actually gives the watch more character I think.

I think the SB Link Bracelet looks better with the Graphite. As others have mentioned, it’s not an exact match to the SB Series 5 either. It‘s actually closest to the Space Gray aluminum.

Looks good. In my opinion the link band, wile ridiculously expensive, is the absolute best band that Apple makes. Its unfortunate that they don't make other colors for it. I'd love to see a gold option and a new graphite option to match the graphite watch but I don't think that's going to happen.

But to your question OP, yes I think it looks good. If you want to use the link bracelet its not like you have a choice anyway.

I think it looks OK but using mine today it bugs me that it doesn’t match as good as the black SS watch.
