    I'd be concerned about galvanic corrosion, so make sure to get the right metal.

    Thanks for posting! I think I'll order one, but after there's reviews on it. I hate having to return items. Especially as I live in the UK.

    Could you post pictures once you've got yours?

    Thanks :cool:

    Can anyone tell me what band size will fit better in this adapter?

    If it is like the rest, 24 mm.

    Here are some pics of the black adapters I got in the mail last night.

    They are black, not space gray, which I don't mind, they closely match the black of the bezel under the glass, so at least it's not a third color to muddy up the design. they fit tightly and click into place. Came with the screwdriver too which was a bonus.

    Clearly the old nato band from my old watch is too small (18mm), but my new bands have not arrived yet...

    looks good. I guess its just a matter of time before they can make space grey aluminum adapters.

    I think those look good! Much better than the silver connectors do with the SG.

    I don't suppose there's any way to tell if those are actually aluminum as opposed to steel, since they're exactly the same as the steel ones that have been floating around aliexpress and ebay.

    They are definitely steel. I'm assuming they've been "PVD'd" for lack of a more intelligent explanation. The listing says black steel in the item description.

    ----------

    I have a 22mm band coming and 2 24mm coming. 24mm will hit end to end, while 22mm will more closely resemble the classic buckle look.

    Do you have access to a scale?
    It would be nice to get the weight of a steel one so that we can compare it to some of the alledged aluminum ones when they finally make their appearance.
