Speedmaster with Velcro strap

Yesterday I received a velcro strap, made by Carl over at gasgasbones.com. This strap looks really great on my vintage Speedmaster and gives the watch its authentic ‘astronaut’ look! Today I wore the watch on the velcro strap while co-driving a classic Austin Healey 3000 from 1963. Both the driver and myself were wearing Speedmaster caliber 321’s.

This strap is the ‘V1’ model from his website, with the NASA product number label and custom made length to fit my wrist perfectly.
