    I just purchased my first Omega watch. I've never spent more than $450 on a watch before but after drooling over vintage speedmasters for the past couple of years I finally decided to take the plunge. I just purchased this from Crown and Caliber last night:

    Now that it's on the way I was looking to pick up a leather strap. Hirsch gold brown deployment strap is probably my top pick at the moment but I'm open to some suggestions on that.
    Anyway, I more or less just wanted to say hi as I'm sure I'll be on here more and more now that I have a feeling a new hobby/addiction is about to kick in!

    Welcome! But be prepared this definitely won't be your last Omega, they're addictive!

    Congratulations on your first Omega, and a Speedmaster no less! You MUST post photos here when it arrives :)

    A brown strap works very well with a classic Speedmaster. In fact it was this combo that first attracted me to the Speedmaster. Here's a photo of mine:

    Thanks, and I certainly will post them! Seeing that picture of your watch really helps solidify that I made the right choice!

    Congrats! Looks like a great example. Anticipation of seeing the FedEx truck is half the fun. I suspect this won't be your last Speedy purchase.
