  • 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.

      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

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...

After about 2 month of daily wearing (office job) the black color started com come off and the grey steel color comes out. The watch looks like new. No scratch in housing or at Glass. The band on the other hand looks now like a $5 band. Apple Store Employee said he is sorry, but no warranty for cosmetic. Not acceptable!

If kept clean and scratch free, this band is eye catching and elegant and will go with any outfit you are wearing. The stainless steel watch combined with this band is by far the nicest looking watch Apple has made thus far, though if you plan on wearing this while working out or doing lots of physical work I cannot recommend it. It scratches very easily and will wear out over time. I have been through 2 bands in 3 years, though they have each been used heavily and I believe I got my money's worth.

      Indestructible finish

      I don’t understand why some have said that the finish wore off. I’ve had mine for two years, and wear it in my shop. I grind hard metals, among other things, an I don’t understand why some have said that the finish wore off. I’ve had mine for two years, and wear it in my shop. I grind hard metals, among other things, and it gets knocked around, as does the watch. Neither has the slightest scratch, or abrasion. I can’t imagine what these guys must have been doing to wear this finish out. It fits well, and looks great. My favorite band.
