    I've seen plenty of pictures and hands-on vids of the regular (silver-colored) stainless steel link watch but pictures/vids of the black stainless steel link watch appear to be few and far between.

    Anyone know of a site where I can see some?

    In that YouTube link, any clue what size watch that was? 38mm maybe, or has demo dude got large wrists and it's in fact a 42mm?

    Thanks, gents. Looks like I do prefer the silver one after all. Looks more professional...

    They both look stunning I think. I reallllly hoped they were cheaper. I mean you could get a MacBook for that price and probably soon (I expect late 2016) therell be a new version anyway.
    But I feel like when getting a "nerd" gadget like this, it should look the best way it can and shouldn't look to techy like the sport with rubber band does. It always reminds me of some electrical watch from McDonald's :D so I see myself constantly checking out the SS link over and over... Ahhhh so hard to decide!

    Damn, so need to see these in store. Thinking black, but silver will be better with scratches

    One thing's for sure, pictures can be extremely misleading.:)

    Not necessary, if the DLC is done right it will be more scratch resistant than the silver one.

    Maybe so, but DLC will scratch, and scratches on black DLC show up the silver underneath nicely.

    There is nothing wrong with scratches on SS. Looks fine

    Actually, good DLC is extremely difficult to scratch, hence the name.

    Apple is so mean.. I think the wath realllllly looks best with the link bracelets, for the nice transition from watch to band, especially compared to the leather bands.

    Is the black SS only available with the link band?

    I think I'll eventually get the space black SS one. For the first gen though, I'm going cheapest.

    I want the space grey watch edition, but I'm thinking about selling the band. I don't like the feel of link watch bands like that. Think it might sell on ebay? Especially since they're not selling that band separately.

    Space black, thanks. Not sure why gray keeps getting stuck in my head.

    I'm comparing it to ceramic. I own SS, DLC and ceramic watches. DLC will scratch, ceramic will not. And once it does scratch, it's so much worse than SS to look at
