  • 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 band. 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.

      Finish failure

      I really enjoyed the look, precision and finish. Most especially, the compliments! This was my daily wear watch as I am fully integrated with Apple products. Th I really enjoyed the look, precision and finish. Most especially, the compliments! This was my daily wear watch as I am fully integrated with Apple products. That said, I was extremely disappointed when I noticed silver peaking through the finish at the typical wear points within 3 months of purchase. After 6 months, full stainless visibility at the wear points resulted in great disappointment with the product, considering the investment.

      Beautiful.... To start with

      Beautiful link bracelet out if the box, comfortable fit and I admired it constantly for a few weeks until..... The black DLC coating started to wear off reveali Beautiful link bracelet out if the box, comfortable fit and I admired it constantly for a few weeks until..... 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...

      Extremely high quality and finish

      Extremely high quality and finish. Have had mine since 2015 and have had no issues. I did notice some wear on some corners of the links which is to be expected. Extremely high quality and finish. Have had mine since 2015 and have had no issues. I did notice some wear on some corners of the links which is to be expected. I replaced those links with the extra's I had in my box and have since not seen any additional wear. So long as you are mindful of what the watch is in contact with you should have no issues with the finish coming off.

      Nearly Impervious to Scratches

      8 months of wear, nearly 24/7 (recharge most nights...on a metal stand!) swimming, showers, hunting, laying cement, I never take it off. The most dangerous expo 8 months of wear, nearly 24/7 (recharge most nights...on a metal stand!) swimming, showers, hunting, laying cement, I never take it off. The most dangerous exposure it gets to potential scratches is when I'm typing on my Apple keyboards. But I can barely see but one minor scratch which I think came when it scraped with great force a corner of a particularly hard brick. I was amazed when I couldn't immediately see any scratch on the clasp. I don't think I could get any type of scratch to show up in a well-lighted picture taken with my X. The watch and band look new. You can get a PVD coated watch from Audemars Piguet but you'll have to wait 9 to 18 months as the waiting list is very long...also it costs about $90,000.00 The Apple Watch scratch resistance is excellent...much better than any of my 3 Rolexes and of course, much better than my stainless steel Blancpain and Patek Phillipe watches all of which needed to be refinished regularly.

      Do not get black finish

      Like many others, my problem is that the black finish has started wearing off on the clasp because that is the part that touches the MBP handrest as well as my Like many others, my problem is that the black finish has started wearing off on the clasp because that is the part that touches the MBP handrest as well as my desk when on the desktop. I am not sure they could do anything better since the finish is rubbing between stainless on the band and aluminum on the computer. Most finishes would wear off... but it does make an amazing band look rather cheap when you can see silver streaks. If you get the silver, you probably won't have any problems. The mechanical quality is great! Just don't assume that the black finish will last on any areas where the watch touches anything for extended periods of time.
