    My yellow gold deployant is 16mm. However I think the rubber might be too thick for mine. Anyone who ones the rubber care to comment on whether it would work?

    I think it would work. My sedna gold deployant was originally meant for a leather strap too but worked with the rubber.

    Also just FYI moonshine gold is yellow gold, just 18k and allegedly "paler"
    Might still work for you if your current deployant cant be reused.

    I get your point about a black ceramic deployant though. But I can't recall any watches with that that would also fit this strap. The DSOTM deployant is 18mm if i remember correctly.

    Have to agree. I never tend change straps but made the effort and I am loving this combo for the summer / perfect with short sleeves. The Omega logo on the clasp is a bit too sharp… I could shave with it. For the money would like the aesthetic and the touch to be 100%..but that is being pedantic. What’s a little chamfer between fans. As my doctor says, just don’t touch it then ;0)

    Something looks off on the first picture where the bracelet closes on your arm/wrist (there seems to be a gap between arm and strap/deployant buckle). Can you either take additional pics or comment as to whether it is just my imagination?

    I probably should have gone for a shorter strap but it fits ok / very comfy. I think I was just at an odd angle for the first photo. As mentioned the Omega log is very sharp, almost to process / no real chamfer - but there is no need to contact it, just being pedantic I guess.

    Yes, this looks already much better than what I had seen.
    So, sorry if I missed it: which strap size did you order vs. your wrist size??

    I am only 7.5cm I think (but perfectly formed). Hopefully these photos cover it. It was a busy day. Got a NTTD (steel) bracelet and the Chrono clasp micro adjustment as well... bit of a cold sweat for someone like me who never changes from the OEM supplied option normally....The NTTD is also a bit too long but wears ok.

    Wow...can I ask how did u get the micro-adjust for your bracelet.....I went to the OB last week and they told me Omega's policy is not to sell the clasp alone... we have to buy a new bracelet with the micro-adjust....

    In the UK the OB could get it within a few days / no issues - but they were not helpfull on other matters. An AD I have a good history with took longer to source it but was able to get all the parts with a discount. They also fitted the clasp which was a bit fidley and is a mix of the old and new now. I will post that up at some point. I think Omega will sell it / maybe your OB wants an extra value sale?

    Can anyone please measure the distance between the holes? I'm wondering if I can use the Formex deployant with micro-adjustments with this strap. Thanks!

    Can this strap fit the current 3861 hesalite sail cloth buckle? That one I know is 20/16mm width taper. Also any one who has felt both the sailcloth omega and now the new rubber with the speedy?

    Is this what you'd like to measure?

    Tried to measure center to center, but pretty small tolerance.

    There are no keepers on this strap to hold the look long tail.

    I got the sapphire on leather, and that is also 20/16, the deployant from there fits this just fine.

    I believe the sailcloth 3861 was the same deployant.

    I was actually considering the sailcloth since i also have the new bracelet, and wanted a more casual option for summer, never got to try the sailcloth but the boutique had this in stock (and warned me of next months price rise) so I went with it. Im very happy with the rubber atm

    What do you mean? Is the deployant buckle a totally different model except for the size?

    I thought in your original post you were talking about a pin buckle, usually people refer to the deployment as a clasp.
