    My second band was. . . *Drum Roll*

    The Apple Milanese Loop! I love it, it feels great and I have worn it ever since I picked it up.

    i'm intrigued; you say you have small wrists, but are considering the leather loops - you got the 42mm then?

    I have very small wrists and so the Milanese loop is the perfect band for me, after a while, it feels like it's not even there. You'll be very happy with it! My fiancé hates it since it ripped his beard when my wrist was near it though! Whoopsie!

    i must have been thrown off by you saying you have small wrists - i'm guessing they aren't really that small if the 42 doesn't look big.

    i assume you've tried on all the combinations then! I found the milanese made the watch look bigger than other bands, and the 42 didn't feel right for some reason. the leather loop was fantastic, but i can't see one being appropriate for me for a few years (young baby and another on the way, and living in a very rainy place) - i don't want to worry about getting my arms wet! ruling that out, and because i liked the milanese i went for the 38mm.

    it may just be me, but every band seems to make the watch itself look different somehow. and the finish of the cases; holding a sport next to a stainless steel it's hard to believe they're the same shape and size - the shininess makes it look boxier somehow to me.


    the milanese is my favourite band, i think, although you say you orded SS with black sports band... aren't they the space black ones? they might look odd with the apple milanese loop
