Totally personal decision. There are cheap knock-offs at amazon. (I got the silver Milanese version watch and gotta say I LOVE the band! It's so pretty and looks AWESOME with my sparkly tennis bracelet!)

It depends.

I bought the gold Milanese band version of the watch so mine came with it.

I figured it is best to get the watch with the best matching band.

However the gold from 3rd party companies are not the same shade.

You will have to wait to find a good one.

A few years back I purchased a knock off Milanese band that had good reviews from Amazon. It looked amazing for the 3 hours that it lasted before the ends came loose from the band. If you like the look go for it. IMHO just go all in. You're worth it :)

I got the steel Milanese loop from my previous watch. I think it’s a good band but not for everyday. It’s good for wearing to an event or if you’re dressing up a bit. I’ll buy the gold one when they’re available too.

I was lucky and was able to get one today at the Apple store even though it wasn’t available for in store pick up on the app and it’s backordered to November.

I love the look of it! But yes this will be a semi formal band. Definitely not for workouts and jogs and daily use. It’ll go nice with some nicer outfits and business meetings.

The aluminum and stainless steel golds are different shades - I’d see if you can try it in store to make sure you like the color match.

Can someone please share photos of the gold Milanese loop with its black stainless steel watch (series 4 if possible)? I find hard to find and I think it can be a nice combination?
Thoughts?

Why not wear the SS Gold AW with Milanese Loop for daily use? I mean people don’t take of their gold Rolex Or Patel Phillip when they jog.

It isn’t the most comfortable for exercise and the band can loosen up a fair bit in exercise conditions, which will affect heart rate accuracy. The brilliance of the Apple Watch is how easy it is to swap bands and wear the right one for the right occasion.
