Hello, which strap for my speedy tuesday one ?
Thanks a lot ?
So ive tried for an hour to get this to fit like that and cant work it out, and your photos below your post of how to have stopped showing. Can you repost the method please?
I found this, it might help you (post #6) https://forums.watchuseek.com/f20/speedmaster-presentation-box-nasa-strap-1612498.html
I’m going to give this a go later
Thats what i need ta. Now to try and get it to work...
Based on the link that @rob#1 posted...here are the photos that stopped showing...
Note: Photo 2 depicts an optional and easy strap shortening method since I have smaller wrists...it provides a means to avoid possible strap overhang (see photo 8) due to the long length of the strap...
Yep perfect got it thanks chaps!
We need more of those Agnelli-style shots of watches! That guy had style and class.
Thanks for the pics @Mad Dog - tried it out and it works perfectly

I have started wearing all my Speedies on strap this way recently. Bracelets however, would need an extra link ☺
I've had this for years and could never figure it out.
No worries...I wasn’t able to figure it out either...BUT...I was lucky enough to stumble across someone [on the internet] who had figured it out.
Anyone own (or want to sell me) this Velcro Moonwatch strap?? Ref.032CWZ011583. Out of stock on the Omega website :-(
Check out GasGasBones, he makes bespoke straps for Speedies, you can choose the strap, buckle, text etc.
I forgot to post pics when I got the shuttle era strap from Kizzi. Alaska Project III was an appropriate choice. I also got the new long strap that was most prominently used in the Apollo 7 mission. Put the Alaska Project on it just to have the “space era” feel.
Dang I still want one of these.
Better get on that email list....
Each time I've asked to be notified when they're in stock, I usually get the email pretty quickly - like within a week or two. Makes me think he might be making them as people request them... My long apollo-era loop tape is amazing.
I went ahead and put myself down for short mil-spec as well as a short white one.
I've got my long Omega supplied velcro strap should the need arise lol.
Just used this thread to try on the NASA strap and I've been wearing it all day! At first I thought it was too tight for my liking, but then I just readjusted it (duh!) and now it's like I don't even have it on! Sweet! Even took it on my morning walk. Definitely better when I'm more in street clothes as opposed to work attire!
BTW why is it so hard to take good pictures of the watch on your wrist. Hahaha seems like I have to really stretch my arms out.
I found I needed to take the pic from farther away - something like arm's length - and then crop it to zoom in. With my iPhone 7 I have found it focuses much better from ~3 feet away than from inside 1 foot. I use an app on the phone called Enlight to crop, and sometimes to even apply filters.
