HOCO Blue leather strap with SS classic buckle and black watch adapters! Why they send me black adapters?! I didn't ask for it, and on the seller's website it shows SS adapters. The leather so so only, I don't recommend this strap, please don't buy.



HOCO leather you have to go for premium grade one then different. The normal grade one are known to be crappy.

Fair enough. Looks decent in your photos compared to some of the other junk I've seen now at challenger Funan for $49.90 (Pearland Apple Watch leather band).

To save everyone the hassle this is what they had today. Note no stands in stock anymore at Funan Challenger.
I bought the Baseus Milanese loop in Singapore from a store called Mac Infinity in Funan for $25 SGD. It doesn't feel as good as genuine Apple given the clasp isn't magnetic but it is adjustable (within the notches) and quality seems okay so far. Looks nice with my SS 42mm. Best bit was the store clerk gave me a $5 discount when I bought it with the tempered glass screen protector ($15), and the staff helped with adjusting the clasp using a flat head screwdriver and applied the glass screen protector.

Here are some photos


Note I took last 42mm to try before buying and hence none left so had to take a photo of the 38mm band. There were a few other options but this seemed to be a decent price and I couldn't find anything bad about the Baseus Milanesr watch band from Google and a thread in MacRumors.
Can upload your photos bigger?

Bro, I see a two defects.

The adapter is a little bit short and can see a small groove on the side.
The finishing on the side of the leather looks frayed and not terminated properly, looks like poor workmanship.

But ok lah, I think for the price you paid for it, what to expect?

NB : I not interested in men lol

Sorry guys - tried to get updates to HWZ live so was trying to post using the iPhone but the HWZ forums kept crashing when I tried to use the upload function.

Here are the photos (and some more) again of the Baseue Milanese loop band and the tempered glass screen protector for the 42mm (which looks a bit odd since I can see the outline quite distinctly when the screen isn't on making it look a lot less seamless than before).







More photos: http://imgur.com/a/OfyQh#0

Quality is decent and exceeds expectations for $25 (or $20 after discount). I can see there's a little bit of gap in the band where it connects to the watch but I wonder if this is intentional to give it some slack/flex so it doesn't break when moved/stressed.

EDIT: I do wonder if this is a knock off given it's a Milanese Buckle rather than Loop, and a fraction of a price > http://www.mobilefun.sg/53492-baseus...2mm-silver.htm

I think they just buy a bunch of cheap rubbish from overseas and stick it in their packaging. Some of the stuff looked pretty nasty- and made me regret buying two $4 watch cases off Qoo10 since probably same stuff.

On another note, the $50 watch bands looked very cheap and nasty.

ya agreed, but as expected it say "chiong" so I can't expect it to be perfect and demand to be the same as a $218 apple loop and unless I stare hard at it it is not very obvious the adapter is a little short.

As for the finishing on the side, it is peeling off and now the finishing on the side look smooth already.
