I'm really liking the new Saddle Brown Classic Buckle Apple is offering what do you guys think? Would it be good for casual as well as dressy occasions? I've got the SS AW

I really like this strap but I think I'm going to go with the brown leather loop instead. I have the classic in the black leather and I find it to be kind of thin looking on the wrist. The leather loop will also look good on my gold sport so I think I'll get more use of it.

Has anyone had any luck finding this band in store? Really want one and ideally would like to avoid the 3-4 week lead time online.

Nope - I've checked high and low for it in 3 different states. No luck. The one I ordered online a few weeks ago went to PFS but it's been sitting there for the last 3 days. Not sure what's going on.

Ordered a few weeks ago and DHL just delivered here today from Apple Store Hong Kong! I really like it with my SS Watch. It will make a good change from my Milanese and Blue straps to suit my fashion moods!

Hi RS232, was wondering if Apple shipped with signature required for this band?

I was waiting for the Store Pickup option, but I decided to just order online.

2-3 shipping lead time. Hopefully it'll be earlier.

Anyone who owns both the original Classic Buckle and the new one able to comment on whether the new one is any more or less comfortable or if it feels significantly different when wearing it?

That would be useful as I have the original Classic Buckle, and considering the new Saddle Brows. Comments on sizing would be useful too.

Not necessarily a *bad* thing but for $150 I would expect my band to come in more than a cardboard sleeve. I know my Blue Leather Loop came in a plastic casing in the box.

Hey modernaccord, how long ago did you order? I placed my order about a week ago and am curious what the turnaround time might be. Thanks!

I ordered it 2 days after the announcement of the new strap. Took just shy of a month to show up, but came straight from the factory in Shenzhen. I suspect they've ramped up production since so you should probably get yours much quicker.
