I was lucky to get a 4-24/5-8 shipment date, but went to a try on to check out the bands that were available. Hope I'm not the only one, but none of the bands wowed me like I thought. The Milanese was nothing special, nice, but nothing special. I really thought after reading all the praise the band got that I'd be wowed. The leather loop was probably the nicest offering (for me and my taste) and then the classic buckle coming in second. But those were even meh and didn't have me wanting to rush and order a extra band. I was however thrilled with the feel of the sport band (surprised by the quality actually) and happy I went stainless steel over aluminum. Anyone else with similar thoughts?
