    WRUW - Thursday - 18 December 2014

    Good morning.

    Trying the flightmaster on leather, today. Not a good match, though. Oh well, I'll try again.

    its odd C looking at some examples -matching a leather with such a massive frame and shape with a set of primary colours resent seems to be a real challenge-[ compared to a speedy pro ]which will take most combinations -
    i think the natural home of the Flightmaster is actually on its original bracelet although the Omega rubber strap doesn't look half bad to me omega-spacemaster_z33_01.jpg- maybe to look for some images of choices on the z33 's posted on google

    terrible dilemna C -wouldn't want to be you

    Sweet. Id never have matched that strap to this watch myself, but I admit it looks good

    The main issue here is the way the lugs are designed; they will not take a thick strap - or even some textile nato - unlike the Speedmaster (and Speedy Mk II). With thin straps the watch looks wrong, feels wrong and becomes umconfortable on the wrist. I guess a mesh would work fine, but I'm not particulary fond of meshes.

    Anyway, no problem. I'll keep the watch on its bracelet.

    Edit: Sometimes, not even I want to be me!

    @ Jeep99Dad - don't know why the "Reply With Quote" did not work!

    Thank you, Brice. But I'm afraid it goes back to the OEM bracelet.
