    I've seen the suitecase and I don't know which one to choose.

    Got myself a little treat today - Saturn was smiling at me from its launch. Today I got it by accident, popped up to a Swatch store in one of Warsaw shopping centres and... even though it's not a boutique they had all but 2 models, no queue, no hassle, available instantly. So Tried the one that talked to me at the launch day and swiped my credit card. It IS a piece of cheap plastic, highly overpaid, but whatever, don't we overpay highly for so-called luxury watches?? ;)

    The watch is soooo light. But the strap is really stiff and bad, plus it screams "I am Omega Speedmaster" even if it isn't. If you have some good ideas of alternatives for this particular mission - let me know.

    Try a coyote brown velcro strap from gasgasbones.com.

    I'd rather put MoonSwatch money towards a new strap or bracelet for a REAL Speedmaster. Went down the Swatch 'collectible' rabbit hole over thirty years ago....believe me, it's a dead end.

    It's not if you want to double the value of the watch :D

    Perpetual straps sells similar rubber straps for much cheaper (~$40 USD)

    I use rubber from wristbuddys.com on mine. They are pretty cheap but very good :)
