    And I don’t mean being able to buy the Space Black watch with any other band aside from the link bracelet. I mean to say that none of the straps actually go with the Space Black watch given that they have silver trims/buckles. I guess this is a smaller issue on the sport bands, but still… not even a modern buckle option for the Space Black?

    I suppose the leather loop is an option, if not for the fact that it’s for the 42mm only. And I thought I was going to be a little crazy by paying top dollar for the Space Black watch with the link bracelet which I don’t really like so that I could get a nice Modern Buckle band to go with it, only to find that they wouldn’t match nicely.

    Sigh :apple:

    The sport band also sells with a gray option which would match, but Apple did this on purpose so people spend $1100 to get the band that matches.

    All signs point towards Apple really only intending the Space Black to go with the links bracelet. If you're going 38mm, like I am, then a rubber sport strap is really the only other good option.

    The white and black sport bands would work too, but the only band that will look like it was designed for the watch will be the space black link bracelet.

    Oh thanks for that; didn’t realise there was that particular sport band.

    I understand that they want to sell the $1,100 model with the link bracelet and I’m feeling crazy enough to buy that… but I also want a second leather/non-rubber strap and there just isn't one that suits the 38mm Space Black watch.

    I am also considering the SS Space Black watch and have a similar dilemma. I greatly prefer a leather band to a metal one and would really like the Classic buckle band to match the Space Black finish.

    Personally, I plan to try them on the 10th and see if I like the leather loop more in person then I do in pictures. I will also try the link bracelet, I normally dislike a cold metal wristband that tears the hair out of my arm but we shall see.
