  • Overview

    Crafted from the same 316L stainless steel alloy as the case, the Link Bracelet has more than 100 components. The machining process is so precise, it takes nearly nine hours to cut the links for a single strap. The custom butterfly closure folds neatly within the bracelet. And several links feature a simple release button, so you can add and remove links without any special tools. An additional diamond-like carbon (DLC) layer gives the space black stainless steel its distinctive finish. Like all Apple Watch straps, you can match this strap with any Apple Watch case of the same size.

      Well made product, but for me, it's a no this time..

      Great looking product and really well made but 2 things made me return my purchase 1. The links nipped my skin, just now and again when I walked or lifted m Great looking product and really well made but 2 things made me return my purchase 1. The links nipped my skin, just now and again when I walked or lifted my arm there was a little nip from the links coming together which started to get annoying after a while 2. The price, it cost more than my Apple Watch face, it's way over priced compared to the other straps, at £250 they would have had me hooked but £449 :( nah not this time, I could have purchased a brand new iPad for the same money

The black DLC coating started to wear off revealing the bright shimmery silver steel underneath. To make matter worse it was on a link that you can't replace (ie/ attached to the butterfly mechanism) I expect a little bit of wear, but to go down to the steel within a matter of months isn't acceptable for a product costing so much money. When I took it into the Apple Store all I was met with was 'it's supposed to be like that'... Funnily enough I disagree...

      Gorgeous band!!

      I've now had the link bracelet over two years (bought the space black watch with link bracelet at launch). Wore it every day for the first six months, but I'm I've now had the link bracelet over two years (bought the space black watch with link bracelet at launch). Wore it every day for the first six months, but I'm up to a dozen bands now, so I swap them out a fair bit. I now reserve the link band for events I want to class up the watch. My "daily drivers" are Apple sport bands or nylon bands from Clockwork Synergy. Those complaining of the coating on the watch - you can tell by looking at it, that the coating isn't as thick as that on the watch body (so you certainly wouldn't expect it to be as durable). I have no doubt that it's using the same PVD process to apply the coating, but, no, it isn't going to be as durable as the watch body. It stands up fine to regular use. I think those that managed to wear theirs have exposed the band to repetitive wear against abrasive surfaces (or garments). Most people (obviously) won't have an issue - millions of these purchased, only a handful of complaints here. Looking forward to using this band with a Series 3 and beyond!!! :)

      Great bracelet, LOUSY finish

      This finish is NOT Diamond Like Carbon (DLC). The bracelet looks great when new, however, within a week or so, the finish starts to rub off. This happens just This finish is NOT Diamond Like Carbon (DLC). The bracelet looks great when new, however, within a week or so, the finish starts to rub off. This happens just from wearing it at the office. It runs off where your bracelet rubs against your desk and keyboard. I complained to Apple and they replaced it. I immediately sold this bracelet and the watch and bought a stainless steel watch. I will be ordering the stainless bracelet because the construct is great. I like the clasp and the ability to adjust the links. However, stick with the all stainless version, Do NOT waste your money on the black bracelet. You will be sorry.

      Great attention to detail and like any coated metal it will show wear!

      Based on several reviews, let me start by saying if you're concerned about wear and scratches then avoid coated/painted metal. Go with the plain stainless steel Based on several reviews, let me start by saying if you're concerned about wear and scratches then avoid coated/painted metal. Go with the plain stainless steel one. However, the space black link bracelet is in a class of its own not just compared to other smartwatch or Apple bands but any band for any watch. Period. So what set this bracelet apart? 1. The clasp fits flush with the rest of the band. Based on my experience that is a unique design feature. 2. Being able to adjust the links by just pressing the buttons on the back and each link just sliding in and clicking into place is innovative and makes it easy to create a comfortable fit all the time. 3. The build quality is exceptional. Perfect spacing and smooth edges with a solid feel. The bad itself is perfectly balanced. 4. The band has a slightly matte finish to it and looks great with the black stainless steel watch which has a more shiny finish. To me, this combination is currently the best-looking smartwatch you can buy today. Metal on metal edges out metal on ceramic. If you're looking for a more dressy version of an Apple Watch get this band. A stainless steel Apple Watch with the link bracelet holds its own from a design perspective against any mainstream luxury watch. Just be aware that metal and sapphire crystal can scratch and coated metal can wear and get grazed. So start witht he right expectations.
