Why does White Sport weigh more than Milanese?

    I ordered two watches. Both 42 mm SS. One White Sport Band and one Milanese Loop.

    The 42 mm Stainless White Sport Band Sealed Box: 2 lbs 0.2 oz
    White Sport UPS Package: 3.10 lbs

    42 mm Stainless Milanese: 1 lbs 15.4 oz
    UPS: 2.70 lbs

    I could feel the difference in my hands too. Anyone else?

    If anything, I would have thought that the Milanese would weigh more.

    The sport boxes are a different shape and heavy. They are long plastic holders where the watch lays flat versus the stainless where the watch comes with a wrist shaped support. The watches themselves will not match the packages for weight difference. Once you get them you will see what I'm trying to describe.

    No, both of the ones I ordered are Stainless Steel 42 mm versions. One has a white band, and one has a milanese loop.

    Can anyone else with these configs weigh in on the weights? Even your UPS shipping weight would help. Thanks!
