Yes, but see the pic in post #40.

thanks for the measurement. As WastedYears posted...the Chronoscope clasp is 15mm like the 3861 bracelet and probably Fratello guessed or got that number from Omega...

I think the pic below from post # 18 (Chronoscope clasp on the bottom and installed, 3861 clasp on the top) shows how Omega is able to not show the endlink when the Chronoscope clasp is fully extended when looking at it from a top view and is able to achieve a flush width look as the bracelet.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the additional info.

Thanks for the info Rich. Curious if both parts mentioned in this thread are necessary or just the clasp? Keep us posted.
As others have noted, just ordered part #117STZ013899 only. I'll post pics once I have it and install it. It looks like a pretty easy swap out of the clasps. Given then longer length of the adjustable clasp, I'll probably have to remove an additional link.

I placed my order ~3 weeks ago and was told ~4 week back order. The one posted here must have been the first spare to come out of the factory!

I can’t imagine anything beyond the clasp is needed for the swap. I’m guessing the additional part number noted was a screw cap or something that got damaged.

The AD has not called me back so my guess is mine in on the 4-6 week B/O too....

I ordered the nylon strap and deployant recently and they said the same 4-6 weeks. This seems to be the standard answer for every part ordered. In reality it took 1 week of the strap to come and 9 weeks for the deployant! After doing some research I found out that Jean Rousard in Paris makes the straps for Omega but they make their own deployants and probably clasps. So good luck waiting! Omega is way behind on parts.

UPDATE:

Thanks to @pbandwatches on Instagram (his pics below) it has been confirmed that you DO need a different connecting link for the clasp to fit on the Speedy Pro bracelet. The connecting arm on the adjustable clasp is wider than the standard one. The link pictured is the standard one from the Speedy Pro.

I’ve confirmed that part number is 118STZ013110. Description is “Attachment link clasp assembled steel”. Cost is $65 shipped. You only need the one link, the other side fits as is. Hope this helps!

Couldn’t you just do the swap here since it’s held on with a spring bar?

Hmm, interesting question. Looking at my own clasp it doesn’t look like that spring bar is going to be the easiest to get out, but definitely seems possible! He’s going to check tomorrow.

Is it safe to assume that Omega will be putting these updated clasps in the Speedmaster Professionals in the future? I know Omega has done a slight update to the movement because of issues with the first batch of watches. And ive heard they have fixed the Sharp case edges as well. Are we going to see a 2.0 version of the new Speedy Professional?

Updated the movement, where’s this coming from? First I’m seeing about it.

It's not an update, it's just the revision of one bushing which wore prematurely, causing the issues that some have had with their watches stopping. It's nothing out of the ordinary really, according to Archer this even sometimes happens after many decades of manufacturing a particular movement.
