    Checking on the UK store the leather loop is now only available in blue or grey, no black! :(

    I also noticed the straps have gone up in price (£129 to 149)

    The only positive is the Milanese loop is now the same price for silver and black (£149)

    Yeah looks like the black color is gone for the US store as well - I wonder if it is only temporary?

    Having reviewed the collections there's no longer a watch with it, but thought it would be available still as an additional strap.

    I've actually got one already that I bought last November (after buying my AW1) but find it odd that it's no longer available. I figured black is the option that always remains. Who wants blue or grey!

    There is no Storm grey as well. I actually asked Apple Chat about this and they said usually if an item is discontinued they would see it on their end. So its not. Must be getting a leather refresh or something.

    Hope they do not all go away as the leather loop is my favorite. Have a brand new black one saving for my sbss AW2 arriving today. It is an exciting day as my 7+ and AW2 on on the truck.

    Check out CeX (here is a link to the US site, but they also have a UK site - https://us.webuy.com/search/index.php?stext=apple+watch+leather+loop&section=).

    I recently purchased some sport bands and the stainless steel link bracelet from them. If you purchase Grade A, they usually come in the original packaging. They are authentic products and I have been very impressed, thus far. If you dig around the forums, you'll find a post dedicated to CeX Apple Watch Bands.

    The black Milanese loop is showing in the Apple Store as £199 as I was considering buying one until I saw the price difference

    You're right, not sure where I got £149 from.
