    Hello,
    do you know if there is a third party milanasie loop like to original- only to have the mounts (that connect to the watch itself) in black?
    I love the look of the milanaise loop, and would like to combine it with a space gray sport watch.

    Thank you!

    I love it. Infinitely adjustable, lightweight compared to the stainless steel bands, and my wrist no longer sweats at all like it did with the Sports band. LOVE the black color.....I can't believe Apple doesn't make an OEM one in black.

    I agree. I have the Space Black steel and would have loved a black Milanese band from Apple. Instead I have the Kartice one from Amazon arriving tomorrow. By the way, yours looks great, thanks for the photos.

    Thank you for your tips! The black one looks awesome!

    I think my initial question was not understood. I want a silver milanese loop with black connector parts (the ones that slip intro the apple watch housing)...

    Yes, it can, but it's really hard to do due to the strength of the magnetic catch. It doesn't move easily, and as it gets next to the loop it seems to catch and hold very tightly. In other words, I can pull on the band really hard until the magnet fails and slides across the band, but it stops at the loop. I have to physically lift the magnet to get it through the loop. Not concerned in the slightest.

    Now, it's not all perfect.....I just had to use Crazy Glue on the magnet to put it back in the catch. Cheap glue, evidently, although for $36 I'm still REALLY happy with it.

    Thank you for response.

    Does anyone know how the apple band works? Is it physically bigger than the loop so it can't be pulled out or is it like dcpmark 3rd party band where the strength of the magnet prevents slipping through the loop?
