I thought the Milanese band was interesting when I saw it a couple of years ago but I prefer the leather black classic buckle. That's what I have on my Apple Watch 1. Seeing that I can't get that band with the watch I went with the Milanese. Maybe I'll give it a try or I'll order the leather band and sell the other one while it's still new. One benefit of the Milanese is it will match the space black. The leather band will show some stainless where it connects.
