    ...seriously, those Clockwork Synergy bands are HOT! I think I saw a black Clockwork box at my house (not the one for my band). Which tells me, my missus bought me one for Christmas. I'm betting it is the lime green one...

    Well, knock a bit off and it's yours! The Classic Buckle is is only $149. I'm close to pulling the trigger on it...
    I decided to go with the Moko leather loop. It arrives Saturday and I'll definitely post feedback.

    Short version, I love it. So comfortable and not stiff at all like a Nylon or NATO strap. It breathes much better than the other two types also,

    Plus since it has no fastening holes, you can adjust it to a perfect fit every time. The only downside is taking the watch off. The band is so flexible that sometimes it is difficult backing it up out of the holder closest to the buckle.

    Is it easy to get it into the same hole each time?

    Honestly I just put it on and adjust it till its comfortable. I might be a spot off from the previous time but the fastener slips between the stiching. I don't see any wear and tear yet.

    Nomad brown leather with black lugs band. Really nice leather quality band. I also got the apple nylon band and amazon purchased black mesh milanese loop.

    What do you guys think of brown vs. black grayish leather? I'm still trying to decide if I should get black leather down the road.

    For some of the women out there who have the rose gold case, or maybe you guys who are in touch with your feminine side....would be gorgeous with a pink shirt!! I picked this up from Amazon, Geotel, for 16.99. Very pretty, matches well. I have a very small wrist and it is adjusted to the tightest fit. Have to hope it won't stretch any.

    I was thinking the same thing. It's all personal preference and there's virtually no wrong choices. To me, brown bands go with all the colors of Watches, and black works best with black and stainless Watches. If you peruse Amazon or some other sites for watches, you'll see just about any watch with either brown or black bands being the most common. Throw a matching/complimentary shirt and most any combo looks good.

    Growing up my mom told me I should never wear brown shoes with black pants. I don't know if it's just something people used to think was a faux pas akin to white after Labor Day or what, but I've never gotten over the no black/brown combo for some reason. Either way just go with what you like. I do love the look of a good weathered brown leather though.

    I received my Casetify watch bands, one rose gold milanese, and one black and white with matching hardware. The hardware is almost a perfect match. The rose gold milanese from casetify doesn't look any better than the much cheaper one i bought from Amazon. I'll have to see how it wears. I do love the black and white band very much and I'm sure I will order more at some point, because they do have beautiful colors and a huge selection. The black and white band is a sports band type of material...not as soft and comfy as the apple sports band, but as I said, Casetify has sooooo many colors. Once on, the "sports band" feels great! Because of my small wrist, I did have to punch a hole to make the band fit tight enough, which makes the buckle off center, but I'm sure most of you won't have to do that.A couple of pics.

    I received my Form Function Form leather watchband. https://formfunctionform.com/product...le-watch-band/

    Love that they size off an Apple Sport band. A beautiful product and a custom fit. Super fast delivery...I ordered Friday and received it yesterday, Florida to California. Definitely my favorite third party band!! I will be ordering from them again. Quality product!

    No problems. No detachment issues as reported with some other aftermarket bands. The strap is fairly long and with my smaller wrist I have to use the last pinhole.

    I've already had some positive spontaneous comments about the looks of the band. It may not be as luxurious as the Apple leather straps, but it doesn't cost $159-450, either.

    I had bought a Nomad leather strap for about the same price when I first got the watch, and it's pretty nice, too, but this one looks better to me. Nomad makes some more expensive straps that are worth considering if you want to spend the money.

    I like that. It's more in line with the Apple Classic Buckle, with the stitching.
