First and foremost, we have the (in)famous "smurf" blue:

Don't anyone dare do this to their Speedy!

BTW, I did not buy this strap. Somehow it crawled into the box with a strap I had ordered. The seller refused to let me return it.

Hey, Bob, it might look good on your white dialed Seamaster GMT. Make me an offer.

It's hard to top the Tiger Smurf, John.
Here's a plain black Omega leather strap.



BooORING! :-D

I acquired this strap from a WIS who custom ordered it for his silver dialed AT. It was made to the same dimensions of the Omega 20/18 deployant straps but the watch was sold without the strap ever being worn.

The strap is very nicely made and of good quality but I'm not sure this one is for me. :-S

If you're looking for a nice inexpensive leather strap, you might check out the Hirsch Medici line:

John,

Like Indiana Jones, I hate snakes. :-D

Anyway, I bought myself a 20mm Hirsch 'carbon fibre look' strap which I think would look cool on the Speedy Pro. Problem is I still haven't got around to changing it after a month. The strap is still in its wrapping. :)

Where can I obtain a top quality strap, like the alligators and shark, with Omega deployment buckle?

I find the omega deployment buckles poorly designed , they seem to pop open very easily.



A real Catch 22 situation , as I find the look terrific.



Anyone else have this experience ?

Here's PW1 on one of Walt's black Genesis II alligators:



These straps are nicely padded and supple with a formal yet sporty look.

Then here is PW1 on the "killer strap"; a black Omega double-ridged shark with two-button Omega deployant:
