    Got bored at work yesterday and decided to make a leather touring/rally style strap for my Speedy!

    Yep! I have a leather company (not sure if I'm allowed to post about it without admin approval) and love making watch straps.

    That looks really nice... would love to see one like that in dark grey/bluish hue.

    Work on the principle that it's easier to get forgiveness than permission and please tell us more!

    Worst the Mods can do is nuke your business premises from orbit :whistling:

    Hmm, yeah I bet a nice dark grey leather would look good with the Speedy, especially a dark or grey side of the moon variation.

    Ah, that’s actually just black, the lighting makes it look like it’s grey/blueish

    Very nice. It’s like a Swiss cheese strap for a Swiss watch :thumbsdown:

    How about black with white stitching?

    I can tell you that the black leather looks especially good on the Moonwatch.
    I'll make one with white stitching down the road and be sure to post it here!

    Beautiful strap. Have you tried making curved ends that fit the Speedmaster’s case?
