    quick question for those who have a knockoff Milanese loop strap.

    I'm considering getting a black one, but I'd like to know what size you're all getting. As I have small wrists (163mm) I wouldn't want to get one and for the magnet to be close to the bottom of the actual watch or worse over lap and by unwearable.

    So pictures or anyone that has one please let me know before I end up wasting my money before hand.


    Thank you

    I have a 170mm wrist and here's what my black ML looks like on me: IMG_3697.JPG IMG_3694.JPG

    I picked this up and just received it today after seeing your post. It's perfect for the price. It's pretty much spot on with very minor annoyances to the original Milanese from Apple. The mesh portion feels thinner than the Apple band and a little rough when wearing until you find the perfect fit for your wrist. I don't remember the original feeling very rough, even when wearing it to tight. The other thing is the width of the band itself feels just to thin because it has room to slide from left to right at the connector on the loop side of the band. That's it! Thanks for the link. I'm really liking it other than those two things and happy with the price.

    Oh, and the magnet. Not worried about it at all. I don't think I'll be adjusting it very much over time due to it getting loose. It's holding on for it's life!

    @Samh92 just to point out something i think you haven't considered - that's a 38mm watch @Qqueenie has and you have the 42mm i believe (as you're looking for a LL from CEX)...

    on the assumption that all third party milanese loops are basically the same design (i've only seen variances in quality reported, but never differences in length) the 42mm ones sold out here in china are a full 3cm longer. in addition, your wrists are 7mm shorter and the watch 3mm longer.

    so it won't look anything like the picture you saw - the loop will extend another 4cm to your wrist.

    that said they're supposed to fit as small as 150mm so it shouldn't be touching the watch, just maybe within a cm and definitely within 2 of the edge.
