Should I get a leather strap for the speedy?

I think its time to start playing around with strap options...I already have an assortment of natos but I am debating grabbing a nice dark brown leather strap to put it on!

·

I would always go with several strap options. I think that can change the look of a watch completely so it's more versatile and most important more fun as well! 

I think a dark brown strap will match the watch. Being a fan of light colours I would suggest some kind of light blue or beige as well.

Yes. Dark brown leather is great. So is a vintage brown leather and NATOs as you point out. Only problem is that once I got the bracelet off (little tough), I was too scared to put it back on (good thing it's a strap monster).

Yes. Great on the strap and great on the bracelet!

For sure! I have a khaki color nato!

May i suggest an aftermarket bracelet? 
From a manufacturer that goes back to the 60s, and even NASA astronauts wore their bracelets!

Here's my 2014 Speedy with a Forster Presidential Bracelet. An absolute dream! 
That bracelet fits the watch way better than the stock handcuffs from Omega, and it's much more comfortable. They also sell a milled clasp seperately, i'd recommend that one as well!

Their Flatlink Bracelet is also pretty dope!

I avoid it personally. 

It's a really nasty industry plus it gets damaged by moisture. 

And I don't like the look really. If you want comfort there are some really nice natos or fkm rubber is great.

Yes, absolutely! Speedy is a very versatile watch and will look great on a dark leather strap IMO. 

·

Sure, if you want one!  I’ve seen them on several straps and they look great.

·

Heck yeah, man! Grab one that speaks to you. The speedy is so versatile and I think it would look dope!
