    Strap recommendations for a classic speedy professional

    Hi All,

    So I just got a new Speedy sapphire sandwich. Love it on the bracelet but I want a leather alternative. I'm thinking something more casual (along the lines of the Hodinkee grey calfskin band) but want it to be high quality and durable. I've owned too many Hadley Roma bands that fell apart after a month and the speedy deserves better. Any recommendations from other speedy lovers?

    Best,

    Will

    Speedy looks great on brown. I'd go Ostrich

    Speedy look good on just about anything.

    Personally id go in Etsy and get something custom made. Design wise it will be to your specs and the quality will be better than any commercial work. The person I used has gone on a long break but there are plenty of people who will do straps on there which don't break the bank. About $70-100 will get you a really nice custom made strap.

    The Speedy is one of the most versatile watches to put so many different and varied types of straps on, sometime ago we did a 30 day challenge in which we put a different strap on each day for 30 days, here's the link to the full 30 days on our Facebook page

    There will be those that will love certain straps and those that will hate them, but that is human nature and be way to go is to go with what you like !!

    One not on the 30 Day Challenge as it wasn't released at the time, is the Hirsch Robby, love it or loathe, personally, gets my thumbs up
