Looks like a standard spring bar, took this guy about 90 seconds to switch to a nato.

Or you can buy the same velcro strap with the NASA logo on it from omega for almost the price of the swatch because it was worn like that when it went to the moon.

I like the one the swatches come with as they are keeping in line with their history.

Yes true… although not sure if the movement and ‘bio ceramic’ would have handled the pressures of going to the Moon. If they even did… Sticking out tongue

Overall a good release for Swatch, maybe not so for Omega… unless they release all these as actual stainless steel Moonwatches for W&W… Cool

That would be pretty mad.

I can't disagree with much in this, probably bar him saying it's more an omega and than a Swatch.

Really? The strap is so horrendous.

wouldn't let the strap put you off

I really like that, looks stunning on that strap.

Debating whether to pull the trigger on this as my new go to "dress watch" - really like the story of this independent watchmaker as well as the aesthetic of the salmon dial. Currently have a Portfino that needs servicing.

Seems to be just the blue one going by social media/watch forums groups.

Shame they’re PP rip-off designs but for just over £100 these are made of plastic found in the sea…
