*Question* Are the watch straps ordered from Apple, small enough to fit through the letterbox?

Ordering a watch strap, leather loop, will be at work and wondering if its small enough to fit through the post box, or do they come in beefy packages?

Thanks

Like one out in front of your house or one of the units that's locked? No to the first and yes to the second. It's a long box I'd say about 20" or so.

What leather loop did you order? I got the Storm Gray and it looks so nice with my SB watch.

I do mean the one In front of my house, if it won't fit my best bet is to just order for collection.

I got the same, Storm Grey on SS 42. Looking forward to it, my white SB is due a replacement, started to lose its colour.

It was the white band, it has served me well since launch, now my band has blue stains on it. I would imagine it has come from my clothes coupled with the rain. However it got there, damage is done and its untreatable.

I'll arrange for collection on my leather loop, pick it up after work.

Whenever I've received anything from Apple, the delivery company has always asked for a signature and never posted anything through the letter box, not that the box could fit anyway.

You will like the Leather Loop bands. My favorite as the size adjusts very quickly and they look great.

The nylon band that I just received came in a box measuring 13.75" x 3.75" x 1.5".

Really? That's a bit overkill haha
The big box helps make sure the package doesn't get lost in the truck.

Apple always ships via FedEx to me, which is a problem only because FedEx doesn't have security access to my building. USPS does, and we were able to arrange to get an electronic key fob to our regular UPS driver; but because FedEx doesn't always use the same driver for a given area, we couldn't make a similar arrangement. At least there are a half-dozen Apple stores in the area where I can pick up a shipment.

Anything I've ever ordered from Apple has been left by my front door as it usually comes FedEx.
