    Considering that Apple can't even stock the normal colors, it might be a while. Or possibly never, since these are for the Edition and might not be made for the normal watches. I personally might like a navy blue one.

    The attachments for the edition are the same as on the other series, so the bands will work for all of them. They just need to make and sell them.

    The edition straps have solid gold pins.

    Yes, but the sport bands don't have pins, they go straight into the watch body. That's what these are. Look at the pic - you can see the shape.

    EDIT: Oh, you mean the pin to attach the straps together. I thought you meant to attach to the watch. Basically the bands will still work but the pin color (which you'll only see in the underside of the wrist) won't match. IMO that's not such a big deal.

    Yes I mean that these particular versions in the picture have gold pins, so these exact bands won't be available for purchase. There's nothing to stop Apple from making regular versions of any of these, of course.

    If Apple didn't start offering them soon, it'll lose out to the "fake" ones like the Leather Loops in red, and to fit 38mm!

    Assume it cost $5 as cost of band, included material, mfg, and design cost, it will need 9 $10 fake band to equal 1 Apple band from profit point of view.
    In another word, Apple only have to sell 1 out of 10 to get 50% of profile in the market.
