If you choose a stainless steel band for one of your KickStarter watches here you can upgrade to a high-end plated version to match the bezel of your watch.
Each piece that is plaited spends over 5 hours in the plaiting machine. The plaiting includes at least .8 microns of Tin and .1 to .2 microns of Gold. Then plaiting is tested to withstand 72 hours of salt spray. All of this cost more, but the end result is a much better product!
