Ceramic Apple Watch Paired With Milanese Loop, Classic Buckle, and More

by

The Apple Watch Series 2 didn't change much visually from the original version of the device that launched in 2015, but Apple did introduce one new version of Series 2 that could be immediately distinguished from earlier iterations: the Ceramic Apple Watch Edition. The Ceramic model comes packed in with a Magnetic Apple Watch Charging Dock and a Cloud Sport Band, so many users were curious about what the color would look like with other Apple bands, and one Redditor has posted an extensive collection of photos to showcase just that.

Sold for $1,250 (38mm) and $1,300 (42mm), the high-end model of Series 2 is definitely expensive, but still far below the first generation's $10,000+ "Edition" models that were made in pure gold. In vvedge's Imgur album, the Ceramic Edition is paired with a few Woven Nylon bands, including Gold/Red, Gold/Blue, Yellow/Light Gray, Space Orange/Anthracite, and Black.

Higher-priced bands also got paired with Ceramic, in a variety of colors. Vvedge showed off the Space Black and Silver Link Bracelet, the Space Black and Silver Milanese Loop, and the Marine Blue and Saddle Brown Classic Buckle. Because the stainless steel of the lugs and bands are visually in opposition to Ceramic's smooth white surface, some users might not like the look of the more costly bands paired with Ceramic.

The Stone and Storm Gray Leather Loop pair better with the device, as do a few of the basic Sport Bands Apple offers. Sport Bands in White, Black, Turquoise, Light Pink, Midnight Blue, Lavender, and Red are all displayed in the album. Apple's intended paired band with Ceramic -- dubbed "Cloud" -- caps vvedge's image collection, and remains the only Sport Band with matching white pin.

Apart from the Ceramic Edition, Apple introduced a number of new collections for the Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 1, as well as a few new colors of the Sport Bands, Woven Nylon, and Classic Buckle. Most users began receiving their Series 2 models on Friday, but a few late pre-order customers still have a few weeks to wait until their Apple Watch comes in the mail.

White rubber strap is probably the only combo that looks acceptable.

I'm not a fan. It doesn't seem to fit with any of those bands.

Ceramic black needs to happen!

There aren't many bands that look good with the ceramic Apple Watch, IMHO.
The Watch itself though is gorgeous.
