  • 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.

      Please do not waste your money on this absolutely beautiful band

      Why the negative review? Simple! While the band is a work of art, the finish wears off very easily and once worn off you will not want to wear the band. When Why the negative review? Simple! While the band is a work of art, the finish wears off very easily and once worn off you will not want to wear the band. When I bought my Apple Watch, I specifically asked the salesperson if the finish was applied or was the metal black thru and thru? I was assured it was not a finish but rather the metal. I took his advice and walked out with the Series I watch. 90 days later the finish was beginning to wear around the buckle. 120 days in and the finish was gone. I took the watch back and complained as was told the finish was not guaranteed and it was abuse that caused the problem. Frankly I was very disappointed considering what I paid for the watch (new adopter). The manager of the Apple store felt somewhat guilty and gave me a new band as a courtesy. I put in on walked out and enjoyed the new one for exactly 120 days and the same thing happened again. Best plan would be to leave it in the box and only look at it. Great design but not high quality. Please do not waste your money on the amazingly beautiful band. You will be sorry!!

      Made for the Edition Branded Watch - Space Black

      It took a while to decide to buy the Space Black Link Bracelet based on reviews. Yes, it’s possible the band can discolor with time. But, if you take a look at It took a while to decide to buy the Space Black Link Bracelet based on reviews. Yes, it’s possible the band can discolor with time. But, if you take a look at the demo band at your local Apple store; it’s been battered by countless demos, and it still looks pretty awesome. This might be my favorite Apple Watch Band, it also looks the best with the Edition Watch in my opinion. I really hope Apple brings the Ceramic Watches back in series 5. The link bracelet is light weight, easy to adjust, and brings a classy look to the watch. Makes it look like a work of art, not just the average fitness device. I find myself setting back, relaxing, and admiring the design philosophy.

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.
