Velcro straps, the real deal

Many Omegans wear a NATO strap on their Speedmaster Professional, to get the NASA look-and-feel. However, NATO straps never left earth ofcourse 🙂

Today I received an email from gasgasbones (Carl) and he makes them from NASA blueprint number DWG SEB 12100030. So, for all you space buffs out there, visit his site and order one! He also delivers various labels attached to the velcro strap. The coolest one is the one with the NASA number, however… ‘Real astronauts wear Rolex’ is also funny ofcourse 🙂

Prices vary (but very attractive!). Go ahead, NASA-up your Speedy! (or other watch that will look good on a velcro!)
