Yeah thanks, think the strap goes really well with that particular Speedy.

£110 though…. might look at some of the Crown & Buckle ones too..

yeah they are not cheap but come with great quality! only choose the straps with the elegant steel buckle or buy that one as well! the other one a shit and not worth it on a strap for 110 gpb.

they have some sales as ell on special occasions so I might wait a bit

Yeah I have a genuine omega black leather strap with deployment clasp which was my everyday one but just thought it looked less formal and more ‘everyday’ with the brown leather for a while.

Great versatile watch and would be my first recommendation for anyone looking for their first major foray into more ‘prestige’ watches.

Yeah agreed, it was my first. bought, wore for a year then sold and bought a GMT.

Have to say tho, I never got the same feeling wearing the Omega as I do the Rolex. It was nice, but I didn't LOVE wearing it.

I'm close to buying a Tudor Black Bay 58, 39mm, but I'm worried it will be the same. Will I love wearing it?

Anyone interested in buying a 1967 Rolex Oyster Perpetual 1002?

It's my next watch, i've tried it on a few times and i love it on the wrist. I love wearing my BB pepsi but it's too big so hopefully the 58 will be perfect.

+1 MoB - I wonder if the 58 will continue after Basel world, or backed with a few variations would be good
