  • 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 physical vapor deposition (PVD) layer gives the gold stainless steel its distinctive finish.

      Milanese loop is faulty

      Just purchased new 40mm stainless with gold milanese loop. The band falls out of the bracket that slides on watch causing the watch to fall. My 38mm watch with Just purchased new 40mm stainless with gold milanese loop. The band falls out of the bracket that slides on watch causing the watch to fall. My 38mm watch with the same type of band does not. The magnet end can't come out. This new one does and is a very dangerous flaw in design. I don't want my watch to keep falling every time I take it off.

      Love it! Slightly Different from Previous Milanese Loop Bands

      I've had the silver Milanese loop since the first Apple Watch was released. Just upgraded to the series 4 gold with gold Milanese loop band. The color is more o I've had the silver Milanese loop since the first Apple Watch was released. Just upgraded to the series 4 gold with gold Milanese loop band. The color is more of a rose gold / copper, rather than a traditional gold, which I love because it is less flashy and more subtle. It's the best looking watch band I've had, and the magnetic clasp is surprisingly effective at holding the watch snug. I thought I'd have to re-tighten the band frequently throughout the day, but I don't. On rare occasions, if doing something that involves a lot of arm motion (like an aerobic workout), it might need a slight readjustment to put it back to the desired tightness. One key difference between the old and new Milanese loops is that, when the magnetic clasp is unattached, the strap can be pulled completely out of the opposite side. As other reviewers have mentioned, this is likely so that the watch can be laid flat on a charging mat without needing to remove the band completely. The downside to this convenience is that you want to be a little careful when completely opening the magnetic clasp so that your watch doesn't fall completely off your wrist. It's unlikely to happen even when unattached, but for those who have had the previous Milanese loops, you'll not want to be too cavalier about pulling the watch off your hand.

      Milanese Loop Is Not Faulty

      I'm sure the new design is to accommodate compatibility with the air power charging pad and other similar charge devices.

      Causes pinches with hair

      I paid extra to get this band but it is impossible to use comfortably because it catches in my wrist hair and causes pain. I bought a Milanese loop on Amazon I paid extra to get this band but it is impossible to use comfortably because it catches in my wrist hair and causes pain. I bought a Milanese loop on Amazon for a low price but it's great. No hair pinches. Why can't Apple do at least as well?

      Gorgeous and functional...you need to learn the "easy on/off trick" though!

      I did not have the previous Milanese loop band or a Milanese loop "routine" so did not have any problem getting this one on or off safely. Here is the tric I did not have the previous Milanese loop band or a Milanese loop "routine" so did not have any problem getting this one on or off safely. Here is the trick: TAKING OFF: Slide the adjustable band to loosen it. For me, this means adjusting it to within 3/4" to 1 1/2" from the top of the watch. (That will vary by the wearer's wrist size.) The band is still securely fastened when you slide it off your wrist. Your watch will not fall off. PUTTING ON: I have a lot of bands especially the elastomer sport bands which I switch out by inserting the longest piece at the bottom of the watch, then the shorter piece at the bottom. For the Milanese loop, I also START at the BOTTOM, inserting the slider, then turn the watch over to drop the loose end tab through the top slot (backside). Then I fold the tab over to secure and easily slide on the band to adjust. I adjust the band, by lifting the tab and pulling. I have had Rolex, Breitling, etc. bands a whole lot harder to adjust while on, that require me to take them off, adjust, then hope it is close to fitting. This one seems quite easy. LOOK and FEEL: Since I am female with no hair on my arms, there is no discomfort or pinching and this copper-bronze color (it's not a "yellow" gold.) goes with everything. I did not like the silver color as the negative spaces in the mesh look darker and the band looks dull grey to me. The "silver" band reminded me of the old Skagen watch bands that I thought looked cheap. The coppery gold band is lustrous, and softly gleaming. It has a posh, tasteful, executive look. I bought the gold watch with the stone elastomer sports band so I would have a sports band with a gold fastener to match the watch. I often use the Navy or Coral Orange sports bands too, even a Nike perforated Turquoise one. I toss a sports bank or two in a zip lock bag in my workout bag. I like zip lock bags for this so I can stash the Milanese loop in the zip lock and easily find again. I often change it out in my car or before leaving work if I am thinking ahead.

      Terrible! gets knocked loose so it can slip off of your wrist, and WORSE

      The end of the loop just slips out of the end when you go to loosen the watch to take it off! The watch just fell off of my wrist!!!! I have had the first The end of the loop just slips out of the end when you go to loosen the watch to take it off! The watch just fell off of my wrist!!!! I have had the first gen stainless milanese loop with my first apple watch, the ceramic 2nd gen one came with a plastic loop. This is way worse in quality than my first gen version. The plastic that came with gen 2 ceramic edition was too hot and sweaty. The magnet is weak weak weak! It keeps slipping loose in the middle of a workout. I don't want to change bands all the time.
