The band construction is excellent and it is very attractive with my Apple Watch Ultra 2. I have wrists on the smaller side of average for a man and I am 81 years old too. My watch band has to be set on the last hole to fit tightly enough and this puts the buckle in a non- central and odd location on the bottom of my wrist. It would be good on the order form to require one’s wrist size measurement ( rather than as an option) so that the correct size band can be recommended for purchase. Apple does this with their band purchases. I am now inclined to wear this BW band less because of the sub-optimal fit. Still it is a fine band, but any future orders will be custom for my wrist circumference.
