    Looking to get my wife a few bands for Valentine's Day, probably Moko Bands from Amazon since I have a few and like the quality for the price. Wondering what colors go well with Rose Gold? She's got the 38mm watch with the Lavender band that I got her for Christmas.

    I've got a rose gold watch and I have, no joke, 26 bands for it (and counting). What can I say --- I love accessorizing. I also happen to think that most bands go fine with the rose gold watch, but I'm not a super matchy-matchy person. How does your wife feel about mixing the rose gold with silver or gold metal features, for example?

    My favorite sport colors with my rose gold (so far) are the OEM lavender, the antique white, and the stone. I love the black milanese loop band with it as well, although I think it also looks good with the silver link and milanese loops as long as you don't mind mixing metals. I also love it with most leathers --- I am fond of turqoise, light tan, and white, and hope to get a medium brown soon. My least favorite bands with it are a third-party walnut sport (which is a darker tan than Apple's version), the black sport, and a dark blue sport. I also think the orange and red sports clash a little bit since they are such warm colors. I still wear them from time to time though.

    I uploaded most of the photos I've taken of the watch with various bands here: https://goo.gl/photos/Q5nE9mW3bhA8qVdM6. I'll try to add to that album as time goes on.

    tl;dr: muted neutral sport band colors, any shade of brown leather, or the black milanese.

    I would definitely recommend the rose gold Milanese, I think it's my favorite band I've purchased so far (which is probably at least 10 lol) ;)

    I have read a lot of mixed reviews of the rose gold ML bands available on Amazon. How is your color match? The picture looks great but I know sometimes pictures aren't 100% accurate. Thanks!

    Check out "pink gold" milanese loops on eBay. The color match is closer than traditional "rose gold"!

    All the pics in the reviews look like it's more gold-ish that rose gold. These are from people who got it to match their rose gold watch too. One of the reviews said that it's not like the rose gold watch. Plus, it's got quite a few bad reviews. Personally, I wouldn't spend the 40$ on it.

    I own that band (it's in my user picture right now). The hardware is shiny rose gold colored, not the pink gold of the apple watch. It's a little cheap-feeling, but it's held up well to use (I've worn it about ten or fifteen times since buying it in December and I am NOT gentle on it...no breakage yet).

    Jess, which band on Amazon is yours? There are so many! I like the color match, looks perfect.

    On another note, I am thinking about another sport band besides the lavender that mine came with and my second watch choice was the blue band with silver case. I wasn't sure how the blue would look with rose gold but I think I kinda like it based on the mixyourwatch.com pic I came up with. What do you guys think?

    I have a midnight blue and light blue band for my rose gold. The midnight looks really nice but I'm not too fond of the light blue. I think the color blue you picked would look nice myself, hope this helps :)

    Great, thanks! That's the BRG, I have looked at both that and the JETech and that one seems to have better reviews.

    I went to the store and compared the light light blue with my rose gold. Not as pretty as I had hoped. I do want the midnight blue strap if it had a rose gold pin.

    Just got the handmade leather apple watch band for my rose gold AW. I did the purchase of real ostrich leather watch band in rose color for my AW rose gold and it took about more than 2 weeks until it arrives. This is the first time I got the purchase from the seller in Asia country. I was not sure about the quality and how it will look like on my AW because what I saw just on the pics that the seller provided at his page on Etsy. But when the band arrived and I opened the small package, tried this band on my AW. I am really excited that it looks like that this band was made for my AW. LOVE it sooooooooooooooo much :)

    Now I take white band out and will be with this new band ;)

    Recommendations from tæylor the little Mac lover:
    The bands dat may go well is the red modern buckle, also the white one
    It will also go well with the following third party cuff from pad & quill!

    I'd say a nice midnight blue modern buckle would be lovely.

    Unfortunately I believe the Pad & Quill cuff is for a 42mm watch. However depending on the width of the band it may fit onto a 38mm adapter.
