    Just got delivery of the space grey Nomad strap. It's very thick leather and will need breaking in.
    Packaged well, and looks great. The black is more black than the Space grey colour of the watch but not bad at all. Here's some photos.
    I think this will develop a lovely patina over time.

    I like it - it would be interesting to see how it ages. I like my leather a bit darker.

    I have a third party adapter that I was thinking about doing a DIY matte finish on with some steel wool or dremel.

    Looks good, but a tad too small for the adapter. Do you know if it is a 22mm or 24mm?

    Never even thought about this- just measured though and it's 24.

    It's the perspective. It's not 'that' big but still...

    Is it worth 119? Does it stay connected or does it ever come loose? Does the connecter match the space gray well?

    The leather does feel good. Not sure it's worth 120 dollars. The U.K. Conversion worked out 80 pounds with postage. Considering the sports bands are nearly 40 pounds I didn't think it was unreasonable for something a bit different

    It's not come loose for me. The potential weak point could be the little holding piece for the excess strap. That may snap open because the leather is held with one stitch on this piece.

    The connectors are pretty much black rather the. Grey. Not massively bad but it's not really matched. It's a very dark grey at best.

    Yeah. It does. The strap is thick but wearing in nicely.

    Looks good, nice combo of watch face, space grey and band. I bet it feels better than the original Apple sport band aswell.

    Actually the sports band is veer comfortable. I think it will fit better once the strap breaks in a little more.

    The issue for me is my small wrist and the holes in the strap. I'm sort of between the last two holes so in using the last one which is a little tight but again I'm assuming will loosen a few mm over time.
