    New shoes for Speedy Pro

    Hi all,

    I'm a bracelet guy, but am taking a stab at leather straps. Which is your favorite leather strap for a Speedy Pro? Pictures if you have any to share would be great.

    I've bought 3 from Manny in Mexico - he sells a VERY good curved end leather for about $25 (compares favorably with the Hirsch Leonardo at 1/2 the cost...

    Here's a link to one of his posts on TZ

    Here's what it looks like on a speedo mark 45 (reduced)



    I attached an Omega clasp to it

    and it sold in less than a day...choices add value.


    And at Manny's price you can buy more than just one color.

    I swapped the bracelet for a black leather last week and it went pretty well...













    Good thing now, I will enjoy the 1863 more now…

    Thanks for all the feedback everyone. I've decided on a Di-Modell Rallye.

    Here are some not so good photos.

    I've worn this strap for over a week now, I believe: I love it. If you've only worn a Speedy on a bracelet, try it on a strap. Di-Modell is a wonderful brand. Thanks Bob Davis.
