A few questions. I recently received White Sport band.. I have Midnight sport band as well. To my eyes/fingers, the White feels richer and seemingly conforms to my wrist better. (White sport band is heaviest sport band I believe...saw that in an article...and confirmed on my scale at home b/w White and Midnight.). Anyone else notice this too?

Second Q...is white sport band unisex? Any guys here wear White? I have always worn dark colored bands except my saddle brown leather band.

Thanks in advance.

Some of the bands do feel more dense and weightier in texture. I also read this somewhere, some of the bands have varied textures.

I also own the authentic white band and antique white band. I am a male and it looks great. I see a lot of males wear the white band. Of all my sport bands I own, I think white is the classiest and it pairs with just about anything.

That's the thing...it really does look great! It makes my midnight blue look very very ordinary. Mine is the regular white sport band. It feels really nice on the wrist.

I own a white and antique white sports band as well, and I wear one of them at least once a week(I have about 15 to 20 Apple bands in my collection). I love the look as well...very clean and pure. Have you had any issues with dirt or stains on your white sport? I've been trying to find ways to clean mine, and I've found a Tide stick works great. Anyways, that's my 2 cents.

I did have a blue pen mark and tried everything (but not Tide stick). Then magically, after a few weeks, the mark disappeared on its own.

I wear white sport band with SS 42mm AW, really nice but looking to buy one of the leather for something classier. It's mean more than a year since I got the AW.

I bought mine used, came with white and black sport bands. Started out wearing white for a few days but switched to black and never went back. I thought the white was sharp and had no problem wearing it.

Looking forward to it.
Ok, just got home and took some pics. First and second pics are side by side comparisons, third one is antique white, fourth one is white. Hope this helps!

It sure does! Helps that your watch is also SS as mine. Hmm.. the Antique is a bit darker than I imagined.

Which one do you prefer, and which you wear more?

I love both. The room I took the pics in was poorly lit, and that plays a factor in how the bands look. The antique almost has a hint of gold in it that really pops when you see it on a gold sport Watch, while the white is just so clean and pure looking. I'd say go for what your gut says:)

I can take some pics in better lighting later if you want.

I adjust the picture so the white band be as white as I saw in the store. Do you think the Antique colour now represents the real one better?

Nicely done! Yes I'd say that's more accurate.

Then I think I'll go for Antique. :) Interesting shade of off-white. And that one might be the last box at the store, who knows.

Thank you very much for your help.

Dude here. I have a white sport band. Like it very much. Wear it probably once a week. It does somehow feel better than my mightnight blue one. My green one (the now-discontinued neon green) also feels similarly as supple.

Don't plan on using the white anymore? Interested in selling it?

I was looking originally for a White but not sure how clean it would stay. The antique white does look really nice and would fit the gold/rose/grey watches nicely. Didn't care too much for it on a silver watch.

I actually picked up a Concrete band today instead of the two white ones. Fog was discontinued but Concrete is similar but slightly darker. It's amazing on my SG Sport. Another option to consider over white.

The white band actually stays amazingly clean. Plus the Mr Clean magic erasers are your friend for anything white they do a fantasic job.
