    Looks like a great pickup from the one photo above. Just about the perfect Speedy in my opinion, vintage look and more modern movement for service. Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice! I'm not a fan of the NATO personally, but the watch looks great!

    Nice watch - doesn't look like it needs much cleaning from the single picture provided.
    Well done.

    Is that the oyster style Omega bracelet? Is it a 1450? How do you like it compared to an 1175 or 1039?

    Thanks a lot [emoji2]

    It came with the NATO and an 1171, but in the original Box [emoji322]

    I am gonna look for a 1039 to keep it original, but will for now put it on leather. IMG-20170513-WA0013.jpg IMG-20170513-WA0015.jpg

    I do wear a kilt on occasion, namely Robby Burns Day, St.Paddy's day and maybe a few other occasions, but not today... just an untucked shirt.

    @sky21, it's an 1168 notably found on the 1975 Soyuz, and on some seamasters apparently. It's a very comfortable bracelet, though in general, I still prefer the old school flat link bracelets.

    I'm not a fan of the forest growing under your watch but the bracelet (I think I can see some of it) looks great.

    OP asked about the watch, not the strap it just arrived with.
