    Who has the Milanese Loop?

    I'm considering getting a Space Black Milanese Loop. The only thing making me hesitate is reading about this strap scratching the cases or ceramic back.

    Can those who have the Milanese please give their experience with them? Thanks in advance.

    I remember this question living on the MacRumors forums for a while.

    Basically, people still weren't sure whether the steel was scratching the ceramic or if the steel was rubbing off onto the ceramic (if that makes sense). And, yes, the black DLC versions were a little harder to figure out.

    Re: Who has the Milanese Loop?

    I have the black Milanese band from my Series 2 Black SS. Your concerns are correct, the Milanese band will scratch the back of the watch IF it comes in contact with the band. Unfortunately the back of the watch is magnetic and so is the band so it doesnít take much for the two to come in contact with each other if youíre not careful. The only way Iíve avoided this is to rest the AW on its side and leave a big gap between the back of the watch and the band whenever Iím not wearing the watch. The one or two times I wasnít careful there are scratches on the back of my Series 2 that match the pattern of the Milanese band.

    Iím not sure if the new Series 4 back has improved durability against this.

    Thank you very much for this response. Iíve read other forums which confirm it happens in Series 4 too. Iím not as concerned with the aesthetic as much as the possibility of affecting the sensors. As much as I like the look, thinking Iím going to pass on it.

    Having just now read this thread, Iím with you, Doug. I think Iíll save myself 199 bucks and put it towards multiple other straps.

    I had one, just be warned if you have any arm hair at all it pulls terribly! I didn't notice any scratching issues, on a series 4 stainless steel model, though.

    I have not had any problems with that strap. Did not notice any scratches but do not look as carefully as on the case.

    Besides hair pulling is it comfortable?

    I do not recall any hair pulling. I find it comfortable.
