  • 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.

Very disappointed as I expected a higher standard for an apple product especially at the steep price.

      Scratches and shows wear easily

      This band looks great from afar but after you've worn it for a few weeks you can really see the scratches and wear and tear on the finish if you look closely.

Other than the easily marred finish it is a well designed and beautiful band

Yes it will show wear. but it has been performing from day one when they were introduced, when I bought it with my first apple watch. It is nicer than the Milanese loop and has more of a classic look. The release mechanism has never failed and the sizing feature is brilliant - no need to visit the jeweler to size it - typical of great Apple design!

      DO BUY THIS BAND

      For those who don’t understand stainless steel bands, YES!, they wear! And yes, they will show scratches. That’s the downside of stainless steel—even, or bette For those who don’t understand stainless steel bands, YES!, they wear! And yes, they will show scratches. That’s the downside of stainless steel—even, or better I say 316L stainless steel. This is not Platinum or White Gold which do not scratch or much at all. Those are hard metals. Be glad that Apple chose to slightly brush this band rather than polish it to a high gloss—you would find scratches just blowing on it. Not really, but almost. The watch is polished stainless 316L Stainless Steel and it, too, will show scratches if you rub it up against anything. One solution is to purchase a stainless steel polish that will remove the small scratches with a soft cloth and a little rubbing. Try purchasing a Ceramic Band (Aftermarket) for a top class and elite band that goes well with the watch. It will not scratch. Otherwise, live with it. And no, Apple would love to put them in the store to try on, but theft is one problem and the other is making enough for every store in the world to have one. One other suggestion that a friend of mine did — he took his SS band to a jeweler and had it brushed further so it would not show as many scratches. It did not cost much and it really worked. It’s still very beautiful and it solved the problem.
