Speedy

Most Iconic watch (!?)

The only one (beside Bulova) ever been on Moon

was not on Bracelet during moon mission ;) ! Velcro Strap instead

So do you think it look better on Bracelet or Strap (Nato,Velcro,Leather,Suede...)

???

Here's another (same watch) on NATO but I prefer it on a strap!

I think it's brilliant on the bracelet. For me though the speedy would be part of a two watch collection and on either brown leather or brown suede. As my diver would be on the bracelet so the speedy professional would need to be on a strap to mix it up

Strap.

Then again I'm a strap hound. Practically all my bracelets from day one are folded and put away neatly in their original boxes where they never get to see the light of day.

Mine is on the bracelet but I've seen enough pics of it on straps to know I'll have it on one soon enough.

I don't think the kind of strap it was worn on should be a factor... since it was on a velcro that went around a suit thick enough to support human life in an EVA. Iconic? Yes. the look when you turn up for your job in sales wearing NASA garb? Not so much iconic as ironic.

Personally I don't much like the newer style bracelet; too thick and untapered. The older kind was sleeker.

I agree. Which is why I have mine on an 1171!

The answer is: both.

Buy it on the bracelet, and then find a strap or three to change out with when you're in the mood for a different look.

A great look on any type of wristband.

I think the bracelet is nicely made, and for long term ownership, it's the way to buy a Speedy. However, IMO, the watch/bracelet package is too industrial looking and a bit boring. I think the best look is leather in lots of different styles, and natos are the second best look.

Both depending on mood. Beauty of versatility. One of the best imo.



Corrigea Heritage strap


Cheers!

I'm forever banging on about how I'm a bracelet guy but the Speedy does look best on a strap (well it does to me)

What if you're applying to be an astronaut??

My answer is: it looks better on a strap (how I voted)

However, another topic possibly entirely, but I think the speedy is the obvious answer to the infamous "one watch" question, and that great bracelet is part of the reason it works.

To me, a strap is best and also allows for some of the owners personality so be expressed.
