    Thanks for the additional pictures and info. Is your clasp OEM?

    No, the clasp comes with the strap. As Iíve said above, these are shown without markings/logoís on the website pictures. Iím not sure if itís a good or bad thing that they come with logoís but I like the look regardless.

    I like it.

    I think the watch looks good with a rubber strap on it. I am one of those folks that value comfort over "correct" looks. I have my Aqua Terra on a Timex fast wrap strap. It makes the watch wear well on my wrist.

    The original bracelet walked its way to the sales forum as it was uncomfortable (ether too tight or too loose) and i really did not see any need to keep it. A Omega Nato strap was tried and sold also as while it was well made, it did not fit right on the wrist

    A watch that is not comfortable to wear is one that gets dumped quickly

    I think the look for me is great - the rubber reminds me of a tyre which links it to motor racing which is what the original speedy is all about (even though this is the moon watch!)

    In terms of the strap itself it is a rock and a hard place.

    I know OP didn't intentionally get a knock off but there are plenty of strap makers who are copying strap designs, colours etc which look the same as OEM straps from any watch manufacturer (same deal with cars i.e. after market parts).

    I've got a good amount of straps ranging from cheap and nasty to decent (bot not full custom) and to be honest the amount of money spent I could have just went OEM and gotten exactly what I wanted instead of 20 which I don't or won't use.

    End of day OP it is your watch and your cash - do as you want or please.

Ok, itís not a genuine strap but I wanted to try it to see if it worked first.

    Whatís everyoneís opinion and does anyone know how much a genuine Aqua Terra rubber strap costs from Omega?

    I'm not sure how I feel about the look, but a break from the bracelet can make the old stuff feel new again.

    I've got an OEM Aqua Terra strap and think it's one of the best in the business. I've been contemplating the exact same treatment for my Speedmaster but my current AT strap is 19mm (38.5) and will not fit...I'd like to try out the look before deciding on splurging on OEM.

    Could you please DM me the direct link to these straps? And how do you find the quality overall? Thanks Ash.

    I don't mind the rubber and think it looks great with the deployment, but don't love the rubber+metal endlinks on a speedy.
