    Has the midnight blue leather loop (with the magnets), for the 42mm been discontinued or something in the UK cos my App Store app shows this band as "Unavailable"???

    Unfortunately, both the Storm Grey and Midnight Blue Leather Loop bands are showing as "Unavailable" here in the UK Apple Store app. I even called my local branch (Bromley) and they confirmed that both of these are indeed currently unavailable and that they do not know when they'll be receiving stock.

    Seems that these 2 colours are the most popular, when buying the Leather Loops.
    :(

    Went to the online store (here in the US) to buy the Red and Storm Gray Classic Buckles and they are both Unavailable as well.

    Haha, whoa. This is the first time I've been recognized by someone as "that guy from YouTube" lol. Unfortunately I don't make videos anymore. I'm not really sure what happened, just got busy with school and stuff at the time. I definitely think about doing them again though. I used to talk to Carlos a lot back in the day, but I think he just got busy as well. Haven't heard from him in awhile. Hopefully you liked my videos when I used to make them! Haha

    It is not just the midnight blue that is unavailable - the black leather loop has been unavailable for over a month now.

    ...its a shame though that I can't find the Midnight Blue/Storm Grey anywhere as this now forces me to buy the more expensive black Milanese Loop!!!!!

    Popped into the Grand Central Apple Store to see if they had the Red Classic Buckle in stock, and I was lucky enough to snag the last one! Even though online it says, "Unavailable", and in-store pick-up was "Ships to Store", I tried my luck anyway. Try your local Apple Stores! They just might have it.

    Yeah, trying the local Apple Store would be nice if the closest wasn't an almost 2 hour drive away! I have tried calling them too and they absolutely will not tell you what is available over the phone. I keep hoping that stock evens out but the longer the watch and these bands are out, availability seems to be static. Very frustrating!

    I must be REALLY lucky!!!! The online Apple Store (both the App and the website) here in the UK, STILL shows the Midnight Blue Leather Loop as being "Sold Out" however, I went to my local store today (Bromley) and low and behold, they DID in fact have the Midnight Blue in stock!!!!

    Bought one there and then!!!! I did try the black Milanese Loop as well (would have bought that if the Midnight Blue was unavailable) however, I found that the chain mail design kept pinching my wrist hairs!!! I also didn't like the fact that it looked very narrow and I kinda envisioned it looking different to how it actually looked on my wrist.

    Glad I stuck with the Midnight Blue.
    :cool:
