I could never bring myself to buy an Apple band for a first generation watch that costs more then the entry level watch. It just seems wrong. It does look nice but then again so do many after market link bands which are a lot less expensive.
Exactly. The stainless link is truly excellent, and not overpriced- in fact, relatively cheap- compared to bracelets for any of my Swiss watches. I think that there are a lot of people with no clue what high quality bracelets cost.
