Has anyone swapped out the Black Sport band for the Milanese Loop or intends to? I'd like to see some pictures of it, please. Trying to envision how it would look on the darker bezel of the Space Gray Sport. Tempted to get the White Band to pass the time until the Loop is available.

I've seen pictures, it looks bad. The leather loop looks ok with the sports models but not good. Just stay away from a stainless steel band with a dull aluminum case watch

This wouldn't be aluminum though. This would be the Space Grey.

I know, it's still test dull aluminum finish. And it's going to stick out even more because it's space grey

Did you think the space grey was a different kind of material ?

You can find a picture of SG Sport with Milanese Loop here:

Looks pretty good to me, but it's certainly a matter of personal taste.

There are several SG Sport + LL pictures in the "Show off your Watch" sticky thread. For example here:

SG Sport + black LL looks absolutely awesome and like they were made for each other. I wear this combination myself. SG Sport + blue LL looks very nice as well. Brown and stone LLs match the silver Sport better, IMO.

IMO, it's a pretty ugly combination. But you can judge for yourself:

Thanks. Here's wishing for a space gray Milanese Loop in the future. (Or at least a third party option) Just wanting something a little more elegant than the fluoro band for formal occasions.

I bought a $5 (five dollar) traditional closure black milanese off Ebay, and paired it with an adapter for my 38mm space grey sport:

I'd probably spend a bit more if I worked in a fancy office, but for now, getting cheap bands makes me willing to get many more variations of them :)

Looks really good, not just for the fact it was $5. How strong is the magnet on that band?

It actually does look pretty good in person. Not least because it's made from a really small loop.

No magnet. As I mentioned, it's a traditional closure. (Flip lock, with adjustable lock position.)

What's weird to me is that the adapter in my photo is silver, not space grey, and yet the eye doesn't really notice it at all. (If you did a closeup, or checked the watch from the side, it'd be more obvious, but from a normal distance and viewpoint, the human eye glosses over it. I think the brain expects the colors to match.)
