    Love the vintage look of the 1125:


    Where does this rumour come from?

    2, A desire to ensure that as customers we're forced to purchase OEM straps. I have noticed that these irregular sizes are something of an Omega speciality.

    I suspect the answer lies somewhere in-between. Regardless it gets right on my nerves!
    3, It's a tribute to the original CK2998-1 and has exactly the same size and therefore lug width.

    Nothing strange or malicious from Omega in it...

    I've seen some speculation that the new 60th anniversary bracelet might fit the FOIS, but we won't know for sure until they actually start showing up in the wild.

    I've heard this as well, but I also heard that Omega will not sell the bracelets from the tribute pieces separately. Supposedly, you'll have to buy a tribute watch to get the bracelet.

    I've also heard they may have positioned the holes in the lugs in a different spot so that it won't fit flush even if they did sell it separate. Omega just loves toying with our hearts. Another option that could be possible (though it might not fit flush depending on case curves and the such) is the bracelet on the new non-limited edition railmaster. Details are scarce, but its a 40mm case so I would presume it will have a 19mm lug width.

    I've guy mine in the 1564/975 combo. Brought it to a watch maker to attach it and resize, didn't have any issues. I really dig the look of the 1564. Omega bracelets ain't cheap unfortunately, and the ones that fit the FOiS seem to be a little tricky to find on the used market.

    None of this would be an issue if Omega's bracelet designers didn't have a love affair with the company's dark ages.

    Finally got my 1125/560. Just missing that air-cooled 911 and my life would be complete.

    1125 works well for now. Wish there is a bracelet with solid screw links and end links with the look of 1125. May be in time.
