    Won 3 auctions for 3x genuine classic buckles (newest gen) for the cost of one new one from Apple. Marine Blue, Storm Grey and Black. Fingers crossed they are all good but from the pics everything looks spot on. V pleased :)

    Wow, congrats! You can't go wrong with CB's. Love my Saddle Brown (3rd ed).

    Thanks. I want a 3rd edition saddle brown too. Keeping my eyes out for one on eBay. Would get one from C.E.X over here but no guarantees what edition it would be. The stock pic is a 2nd edition sadly.

    How do you differentiate between the different gens? I'm jealous of the marine blue since it's no longer available, but the sea blue looks really good so may pickup that one.

    1st gen looks cheap...no crease along the edge.

    2nd gen has crease along the edge.

    3rd gen has crease AND stitching along the edge.

    Well my straps arrived. I've only looked at the black one as the other 2 are a present for my birthday from my missus (she was going to buy me a leather strap from apple but is instead gifting me 2 of these) Brand new condition, the assembled in china engraving on the attachment lug. Quality and genuine. Well chuffed!
