    kinda surprised at the state of third party bands. Most aren't very good. Anyone else been hitting up this forum like 5x a day to see if anyone found some new digs?

    Would love a link to just some regular 22mm band sites. I really don't know if many.

    Looking for some real nice quality simple leather bands. Earthtones preferably.

    That's exactly what I'm looking for. I wouldn't mind paying $100+ for a band from a reputable manufacturer. Case Mate has some on the horizon and so does Pad & Quill.

    Strappedfortime.com has some good looking ones. That's where I'm getting mine from once my adapters come in next week

    I like that store for watch straps, really good selection and they do a good range of larger straps, which I need for my chunky wrists. I think their prices are pretty good as well. I will be ordering a couple from there for a bit of variety.

    But to me nothing has come close to the Apple Milanese, so I just had to have one of those as well.

    Mastersintime.com for some name brand bands. I'm looking at a 22mm Skagen mesh band.

    Simply, why there is no any band without separate adaptor. I am looking for a band with built-in adaptor like apple link band but unfortunatley I am not able to find anyone yet.

    I am not planning to spend 450$ for apple link band but I can pay like 100$ for SS band with built-in adaptor.

    Any band?

    I saw the actual watches but not many name brand bands. Diesel and a couple others when you click on the "bands" heading

    I think the best thing to do right now is to buy the aftermarket apple style adapters and pair it with your own 24mm strap. The 22mm straps look horrible with the apple adapter.

    Definitely this, the 22mm straps look too small on my adapters, I don't like the sideways movement of them either. The 24mm are a better fit.

    When you click on the straps heading they list all of the brands along the left margin. They have tons of authentic bands...victotinox, luminox, Skagen, fossil, citizen etc.
