Personally the Titanium or the SS Black Hermès looks better than ceramic because so few bands look good with ceramic to me.

but I like the silver SS Hermès look the most

Out of those three I'd pick between the SS Black Hermès or the White Ceramic. The Hermès for a more classy look and White Ceramic if you're more into the tech vibe. The storm-trooper look with the Ceramic on a Black Leather Loop is pretty sweet for example.

Personally I'd go with the SS Black Hermès with the band above.

I went with the Space Black Hermès this year, but would like a Titanium Hermès option in the future.

A pro for the titanium is that it is only a $100 premium over the regular stainless steel and includes a sport band and extra year of warranty. You can actually get the titanium space black and the matching Hermès band for less than the Hermès model itself, if you don’t mind not having the Hermès watch faces.

Thanks very much!
Only 6 g between SS and Ti. Not too much. And one more question. What are differences between SS Black model and SS Black Hermes model? Only Hermes band and Hermes faces? Black color is the same on both models?

Hermes SS watches have the following over the regular SS
- additional Hermes exclusive sport band
- Hermes watch faces
- 2 year standard warranty. 3 year warranty for AppleCare+
- Hermes packaging

Great choices.
I got the Hermès but I had the same feelings about the ceramic and settled on adding the leather band to my order. It’s such a unique band and super cheap

I personally love the Ceramic, have a Series 3 Ceramic and am getting the Series 4 Ceramic. Not all straps go along with it, but lots do still!
It depends on your personality and how much you're good with making things fit. For instance I have a yellow strap that I wear with yellow shirts. The ceramic on its own with it doesn't look good, but because you're matching it with another piece, then it makes sense. I've never gotten anything but compliments from the Ceramic... But I also don't care too much about other people :)

Doesn’t it depend on whether you’re a man or a woman to some extent? A white ceramic watch wouldn’t really match if a man customarily wore suits or jackets. I suppose it’s OK with sportswear.

The watch is whatever you make it. Who cares about the gender, you create your own style based off what you think looks best, not some perspective because of the opposite sex.

Unless the man wore a lot of white suits!

I ordered a SBSS Series 5 and a Hermes SBSS Series 5.

I've been an avid regular SBSS wearer in the past, but I this it's time to upgrade to the Hermès piece.
