A few days ago, I posted a small message about a NOS (New Old Stock) Omega racing strap I bought via eBay. I picked it up from the post office last friday and today I finally had some time to remove the stainless steel bracelet and attach the NOS strap. Here is a first picture that I just took.
As you can see, the strap is quite flat and in my opinion, that suits the vintage Speedmaster Pro (pre-)Moon better than the heavy padded straps that Omega delivers nowadays. I also attached a vintage stainless steel buckle with applied Omega logo. I think this buckle is a bit more 1950s which makes it not entirely appropriate for this ref. 145.012-67 Speedy, but it does the trick for now. I probably have a 1960s buckle laying around somewhere, so that’s something that can be done later on today. Or tomorrow. 🙂
Have a nice weekend all! Coming days/weeks you can expect some nice reviews and articles here on various watches. Among them are a lady’s Patek Philippe 24 in gold with 34 diamonds with satin strap (my girlfriend really liked this one), a Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso and an Oris TT3 PVD.
