I have decided I’m buying myself one, at some point in the near future.
I will, probably, mostly wear it in a NATO or Erika MN, but I’m also thinking about a tropic or rally strap.

Speedmasters are strap monsters. Don’t limit yourself. They literally look good on almost everything.

Hmm. Any suggestions for a good “big hole” rally strap? Maybe w a ventilated rubber back? (FL and SC are a bit steamy. )

Might look at Hadley Roma or Hirsch for two suggestions.

Looks great on all straps. Ive had ones on Hirsh black ralley and more recently on a brown B&R Bands rally. its def a fun watch to play around with strap combos

You might like this one…


Or maybe go for a Tropic Sport (NOS ones may be difficult to come by and sometimes get crazy expensive, but you might find some good “reissue” around).

Rally straps look on the Speedy Pro

However leather ones might not last in your hot sweaty climate.

Here is my old Speedy with a leather rally strap on it

I don't think a tropic strap matches the look of the Speedmaster. If you want a rubber strap with more of a sailcloth look, check out the Hirsch Tiger line of straps.

I'd have to agree with rfortson and Perseus. I see the Tropic strap as something that works much better on a dive watch. While the Speedmaster is definitely a strap monster, and can rock pretty much any strap, I just think a Tropic strap looks out of place on the Speedy.

It's like putting small wheels on a lifted, off-roading 4x4...it might work okay, but it just looks...off;

Okay, so thats a tiny bit of an exaggeration, but I thought we could all use a laugh.

All that being said, OP, if you like the look of a Tropic on your Speedy, then go for it.
