Apple Watch Space Black Link Bracelet: Pricing

Apple is selling a Watch strap called the Space Black Link Bracelet in India for Rs 47,900. The Watch Strap is currently the most expensive one in the lineup. Apple is offering the Space Black Link Bracelet strap in two sizes. The 38mm variant works with Watch models having 40mm and 41mm dials. The 42mm variant, on the other hand, works with models having 44mm and 45mm dials.

There is also a Silver Link Bracelet, which is available in India for Rs 37,500. The Silver link bracelet can be bought in 38mm and 42mm sizes.

Why is the Space Black Link Bracelet so expensive? The company stated that the Watch strap has more than 100 components and is crafted from the same 316L stainless steel alloy as the case. Apple further revealed that the machining process is so precise that it takes nearly nine hours to cut the links for a single band. 

The custom butterfly closure folds neatly within the bracelet and several links feature a simple release button, so you can add and remove links without any special tools. To top it all off, an additional diamond-like carbon (DLC) layer gives the space black stainless steel its distinctive finish.
