    Is it really that much of a fashion sin?

    It's so hard because (in my opinion) the Space Black Stainless Steel is the best looking face while the Milanese Loop is the best looking band.

    For them to match I'd either have to get the regular Stainless Steel (which isn't as nice as the black in my opinion) with Milanese Loop. Or Space Black Stainless Steel with matching Link Bracelt (which looks like a cheap Casio band to me).

    I assume other people are in similar watch face vs watch bands difficulties. Any suggestions?

    We'll have to wait until tomorrow to see if one can buy custom combinations. If not, to get the Space Black watch you'd have to buy it with a link bracelet (which, if you look around here, people don't expect to be cheap) and then buy the Milanese Loop on top. Though depending on how much you're willing to spend to get your combination, that may be OK.

    While I do like the Space Black watch, I'd personally get the standard SS one as I think it gives one a bit more flexibility with band choice (of course, I'm a cheapskate, so if I do get a watch it'll be the Sport :p ). Space Black and Milanese loop wouldn't look awful, but I don't think it'd look nice as the standard SS watch.

    Let's put it this way, I want a black Milanese loop and black SS Watch, so if they don't ever make the black Milanese loop, I would be getting the regular SS Watch and Milanese loop instead.

    There's no reason why they can't design a black Milanese Loop for a future iteration.

    You can google PVD Coating Service and you'll get a bunch of hits. These guys do watches, so you may want to start with them:
