  • Overview

    A modern interpretation of a design developed in Milan at the end of the 19th century. Woven on specialized Italian machines, the smooth stainless steel mesh wraps fluidly around your wrist. And because it’s fully magnetic, the Milanese Loop is infinitely adjustable, ensuring a perfect fit. An additional diamond-like carbon (DLC) layer gives the space black stainless steel its distinctive look.

      BE CAREFUL! SPACE BLACK MILANESE LOOP SCRATCHES SAPPHIRE SCREEN AND SENSORS

I have been using it for about two weeks, and toda So I was excited to see an official Space Black Milanese Loop, and I bought it the day that it was released. I have been using it for about two weeks, and today when I went to clean my watch, I noticed that the sapphire screen and sensors are covered in scratches consistent with the band touching them! The DLC coating on the loop is apparently hard enough to destroy the watch, simply by taking it off and placing it down on a table. I am out of the country for another month or so, and my watch is still under the one year warranty. I am hoping that Apple will replace it for me once I get home, because it was completely spotless before I started using this band, and Apple did not post any warnings about the band scratching the watch. SUMMARY: DO NOT LET YOUR SPACE BLACK MILANESE LOOP COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE SCREEN OR SENSORS ON YOUR APPLE WATCH BECAUSE THEY WILL GET SCRATCHED!

      Feels and looks great with Space Black Sport

It's so finely made that it doesn't scratch the surface of my MacBook Pro while typing. Also it doesn't pull the hairs on my arm which I originally worried about.

I was a tad wary the band would be uncomfortable over a long duration; however, it is very lightweight and made well, offering a great balance between a casual and professional look.

      My favorite

      I have several straps for my Series 2. Some are after market and some from Apple. My personal favorite is the Milanese loop. I like the precision adjustability.

Is very comfortable and good enough that I do not notice anything on my wrist. I like that.

      Wonderful. My "perfect" band.

I first experimented with this type of band using a third party option, until its painted black coating started rubbing off within a month. Having been otherwise satisfied with the mechanics and feel of the band, I bought the official Apple version. My first impressions were great. I was not at all surprised to discover that this "black" band is not a deep, true black, but rather a dark gunmetal type of finish -- my "black" Apple Woven Nylon band is the same story. In fact, the two bands look quite similar at a quick glance. This lends itself to some versatility; a perfect band for any formality. I never feel like I'm overdoing it nor underdressed with the Space Black Milanese Loop. What other reviewers have mentioned is true, for better or worse -- for instance, it looks great with the Space Grey aluminum watch, with the minor concession of the polished stainless steel lugs clashing with the watch's matte aluminum finish. Otherwise, you've got glossy black glass screen, matte grey aluminum watch, and the not-quite-black Milanese Loop with a luster comfortably between the former two materials, both in shade and shine. As for the diamond-like carbon coating (and its propensity for scratching other parts of the watch,) I can appreciate it being a necessary evil in order to maintain the band's color over time. Third party manufacturers aren't achieving this otherwise, and the black rubs off to bare steel -- not a good look. Finally, I do get the occasional arm hair snag between the band and its magnet, but only there, and only occasionally. Just the nature of the beast. Those with extra hairy arms may want to give this band a test run to see if it's more of a nuisance than I'm experiencing. Four stars -- not a "perfect five star" product, as it can scratch the Watch, and can snag your arm hair(s). It also may require retightening later in an active day. However, if you're gentle with the Watch while not in use, don't mind the occasional arm hair snag, and have 2-3 seconds to spare to refasten the magnetic closure, it could be your "perfect" band.

      Weak magnet clasp and snags hair

It doesn't look that great; it appears flimsy. I find myself having to frequently tighten the band because the weak magnet keeps slipping. The frequent hair snagging is also quite unpleasant.
