    I got my concrete band in today. I ordered it from an ebay seller. The Apple box shows the image with the color name on it (concrete), and the image has a bit of a brownish-gray looking band. The band is definitely just gray. Is concrete a true gray? I'm just wondering if the band I have in the box is actually the concrete color because obviously the image/wording on the original Apple box wouldn't be incorrect.

    I know what you mean, I ordered one and it arrived today. It's a true grey but the box is misleading. Here's a photo of the box and strap, it's under artificial light but you can see the box has a brown tinge but the actual band doesn't.

    Ok good. I just wanted to be sure the seller didn't put the wrong color in the box or something since it was a used item. I like gray, but I would've preferred something more true to the color on the box. I'll wear it and see what I think before I decide if I'm gonna keep or sell.

    What I really wish I could get my hands on is a 38mm stone for a decent price. That and turquoise are my favorites! I got a turquoise a couple days ago and it looks great with the silver aluminum (and SS as well if I decide to wind up going that route). It is definitely my favorite color they've done, but it doesn't look perfect with every color.

    I just want at least one that pretty much goes with everything and isn't black or white. Maybe this concrete will work for that.

    It's not really a true gray like the fog band was. It definitely has some tan color too it. Wear it with something gray and you will see.

    Anyone have a pic of the concrete color with a space gray sport watch?
