    Sorry if this has been discussed before already but I was browsing the Apple site last night in the Watch section and noticed something odd about the Space Black Link Bracelet model.

    In one shot its looks a lot lighter while on another page its looks way darker.
    Now its making me wonder what the real thing will look like actually???

    Here's some screen shots I took to compare the shade difference.

    Depends on the lighting. I have a Seiko that has the same space black look. In some light it is dark as night, and others it is very light grey

    Ahh fair enough then.
    Good to know its just from lighting effects that can change the contrast of it overall.

    At one point I started thinking to my self was it possible the lighter one was the prototype color (as that's what I saw last year) and the darker was the final product version. lol

    All good now and thx for the info all.

    The only problem that still remains for me is if Apple decides to release separate a few extra link bracelet pieces as the current size wont be able to fit me :(

    The size is a concern for me too. My wrists are exactly 8 inches. My plan is to preorder a Black SS and a Silver SS with a Blue Leather loop. The next day I'll try on the Black SS and if it's too small, I'll cancel that order and keep the Silver SS order =/

    8 inches = about to 203mm I think??
    So your very close to the maximum size of 205mm as Apple stated.

    For me though my wrist is about 250 mm :eek:
    No chance at all of it fitting me straight out of the box :(
