Agreed. And your band selection is very limited with the black watches as well.I don't like black watches - I think they look heavy on the wrist and stand out much more than the lighter colours. Like when someone wears black socks with shorts. The dark watch makes your arm look like it's been chopped.
If the Space Black is scratched you can't just buff it out like you can with the regular stainless one - it's a coating.
Most of the bands also have polished stainless connections so there's a definite clash between the two finishes.
I've owned Space Black since day one, and I can tell you that it's extremely durable. It's still as pristine as the day I got it.SS scratches, can be polished.
Black SS has a coating that can be scratched so no buffing out scuffs.
I have no idea how durable the black ss is, because of the price point. Its hard in my case to justify such an expensive toy.
I find it interesting that they charge the same price for the bundled black sport band in standard SS or Space Black SS, but $100 extra for the Space Black link bracelet, even though the Space Black watch case itself also has the DLC coating.Not when he got his... the SBSS version was only available with the matching link bracelet, for $1099 ($1187 w/tax).
I've had my SBSS for three months now and I have about 6 bands so far. There's lots of options for bands - just not as many from apple. There's more and more resellers (like clockworksynergy) that have matching black adapters and PVD coated black buckles/hardware. (and if they ever get their marketing pictures done and update the site, there will be another 40 bands that those with any colour of Apple Watch can select).Agreed. And your band selection is very limited with the black watches as well.
Same price only if you're getting it with the black sport band. The Space Black link bracelet is still $100 more than the standard SS counterpart.I understand that but the OP wants to know today not when he bought his... So it will be the same price if purchased today.
Yeah the black link band purchased sperate also cost more then the silver one, so why wouldn't the watch that it comes with? Also OP never mentioned the link band.Same price only if you're getting it with the black sport band. The Space Black link bracelet is still $100 more than the standard SS counterpart.
