    Hi everyone,

    Im trying to decide between the Link bracelet or the Saddle Brown Classic Buckle for my new SS Series 2.

    Ive ordered and cancelled a few times because I keep dithering on the choice.

    I have a Tag with a SS Link bracelet and I like the bracelet, but thought maybe I should get something to differentiate the Apple watch from it.

    I knew theres a bit between both options price wise. Im suited most days at work, and shirt and pants other times, pretty much always dressed smartly due to my role.

    All opinions appreciated.

    Go Space Black SS with Link. It's amazing I initially got the space gray aluminum sport last year at launch but then upgraded and since then I haven't looked back. The Link bracelet is so dope and unique compared to anything else out there. You can always buy other bands later on to change up the look.

    I thought about it too - but doesn't that limit bracelet choices down the line? As in most have stainless furniture which would clash with black?

    If you're like most here, you'll find it very difficult to ever go back to your Tag. If you generally prefer link bracelets, you might end up buying it anyway if you start with the leather band.

    I went from a link bracelet dumbwatch to a link bracelet AW, and it's still the only band I have.

    I own the Stainless Link bracelet and black stainless bracelet, they look absolutely amazing. By far the classiest band I own for the price tag. Very happy with both of them.

    I like CB because it keeps Watch lightweight and comfy to wear.

    I use the link bracelet for the office and the saddle brown classic buckle for the weekends. The leather strap is too casual for a professional look.

    Metal bracelets are considered informal, casual wear among watch people and leather is the dressed up "what you should wear with a suit" option.

    If you're like me and considering the budget, how about:

    Option 1: Link bracelet
    Option 2: Milanese loop, black classic buckle, and brown classic buckle

    Yeah that is one of the issues is most of the bands have the stainless steel adapters.

    If you have a SB SS, you can find matching third-party adapters on Amazon.

    I ended up buying both the Link and the Saddle Brown eventually.
