    Hi. I just bought the mentioned-above model thinking it was very minimalistic (in a way that screen's black matches its body) and understated.

    I work in financial industry and usually wears formal attire. I mainly bought this for casual use and fitness, but I was wondering how it would be viewed by others in workplaces. Anyone in similar situation to share your experience?

    From what I have seen anything goes. Saw guy with full dress suit the other day with tennis shoes. Looked comfortable.

    The Stainless black link bracelet paired with the space black Watch is very formal looking. I have worn this on numerous occasions and it looks sleek.

    I wear business casual most of the time but once in a while a suit is required. I have a Horween Nomad leather strap and a knock off milanese to dress it up. The bands/straps have a lot to do with the overall look of the watch.

    SB definitely works with formal attire. My link bracelet with the watch looks as sleek as any other watch. Get wild and try the nike band with neon kerchief.

    I wear formal attire every day to work - my S0 Apple Watch was the Space Black SS and it looked stunning with a black leather strap, black Milanese or black Link for the formal occasions.

    I have the SS now and it looks stunning as well but I think the black attracted less attention actually.

    It is pretty much anything goes these days, but the combo you're suggesting is definitely not pushing any boundaries. It will go just fine with business attire.

    Watch an episode of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He always wears sharp suits and has been rocking the SBSS lately. That will give you a good idea how it looks (very dressy and nice, IMO).

    Space Black Stainless steel works with the space black link bracelet, Milanese loop, Black leather classic buckle, Brown classic buckle, blue classic buckle, Black Sports band, red sports. All work with suit or business casual.

    If you work in finance, I imagine cost is more important than looks. :p

    Stop worrying. SBSS is fine. Like a classic Rado.

    A black link or milanese to go with it would be perfect.

    What matters is the band. Just use the link bracelet or leather bands.
    Although I have seen many wearing their neon-colored sports bands with their suits.
    I think it's not really a big deal today, depending how conservative your colleagues and bosses are.

    Yep, Saddle brown leather with either SS or SBSS looks really cool.

    For the SBSS, it's better (IMHO) if you can find a saddle brown with glossy black adapters to match the watch body. I couldn't, so I had to buy two 3rd party bands, dis-assemble and then re-assemble the adapters and buckles to get a perfect match for my SBSS. Both bands came from the same manufacturer - so all the components were the same width and matched up perfectly. (Clockwork synergy, I think? Best buy had a sale on. Can't resist a sale!)
