    If the Speedy megabox from Omega also contained a pouch and plaited strap, it might just catch on...

    Mostly no, but your presentation certainly changed my opinion from harshly no to just "mostly". It looks as good as it possibly could in that configuration. For that you deserve some kudos.

    Looks sort of like something the ewoks would sling at storm troopers on Endor

    Like it, but it might look a bit strange in use. Handy if you had small wrists, like a squirrel.

    I'd wear it in Westworld :)

    needs to be paired with something cowboyish........ worn over trousers whilst riding a horse...... or with a cowboy hat perhaps.

    Too many nights in strange hotels, with too much coffee. :D
    Isn't that style what you bought the Hamiltons for?

    I am just waiting for the next iteration of Mad Dog's "ways you can wear a Speedy" as long as we don't end up here:

    I am afraid placing a speedy in a leather pouch would have even a more wearing effect on the back and crystal (contact, dust, friction) than a Nato strap does.

    Of course I do have several of these hanging around :whistling:

    I think it needs to be an earring actually.

    We need to dislike this concoction for symmetry purposes. We hate when the frankenmasters make pocketwatches into wristwatches, so we have to dislike when wristwatches are made into pocketwatches.

    I can't believe I'm gonna say this, but that set-up just moved NATO straps up a rung.

    The almighty cuff case! :thumbsup:

    I sported two of those on my bat belt when I was a cop...one for chained cuffs and one for hinged cuffs...good times! :thumbsup:
