    Hey guys. It's official, I'm the first person to buy the official British Olympic nylon band from the Apple Store. It looks great, a bit different from what I thought it would look, but great nonetheless. The box says "international edition" and its written in gold. The employee said it was the first sold, a nice touch to the buying experience (as long as it's true haha).
    Some pics attached.
    I hope the quality is good and it will age well... any nylon band users to give me some tips?

    Looks great. Would you mind to post a photo of the packaging?

    Looks more like a Costa Rican band.. I guess they have to do a repeating linear pattern so couldn't do a union flag?

    Very, very nice! I hope the "international edition" will be sold internationally after the Olympics. But for now, a cool excusive for the locals (and athletes).

    Not really. I'm from Rio but my partner is from the UK. Also, the combination of red and is my favourite colour mix, so...

    Interested in exporting some to the US? I am sure many people on this forum would be happy to deal with you!

    We can only buy 2 per person. If anyone is interested, but it's not easy exporting due to taxes, freight, etc... Let. Me know and I'll see what I can do. Just want not to lose money on it.

    Also, they cost 329 BRL, which is equivalent to almost 95 USD. Thats how expensive Apple is in Brazil...

    I would totally be in for a New Zealand band (the all black one), but it's probably a lot of money to ship to Chicago...

    If they were on sale I reckon I'd buy the Netherlands one. I'd love an orange nylon strap!
