    Speedmaster on an Aqua Terra

    So I was looking and freshening my Speedmaster up a bit with a new strap instead of the bracelet and couldnít decide on which leather to go for. Then I saw the Aqua Terra rubber straps and thought that may suit the Speedy. It arrived today and Iím really pleased with the look. 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?

    At first I didn’t like the metal endlink but it’s growing on me. Definitely a different look.

    I don't like it. I think the rubber clashes with the watch. I feel like rubber is for dive watches which of course the speedmaster is not. Just like I dont like leather on dive watches. Just my opinion. Hope you don't take offense but when I ask these type questions I want real opinions so I tend to give them myself.

    If it's not a genuine strap, where did you get it? I like the strap, might consider getting one of those myself.

    I think the rubber looks fine, as I also wear mine sometimes with a black rubber strap.

    Itís an AliExpress purchase. Just had a look at the price of the genuine straps/buckles and this might have to stay on for a while longer!

    No offence at all. Itís great to gather others opinions on things such as this.

    I think it looks great. I've been toying with doing the same on both my Speedy and my 300m pro.

    I'm in the "dislike" column on this one, but I admire the attempt. Have a great day.
