Mimo - I'm not sure if you reside on this side of the pond, but if you do, hit me up next time for a reference to a Canadian Omega specialist.  He's taken care of a number of my vintage pieces and absent the catastrophic, your total repair would likely cost less than what you will be shelling out for shipping and a quote.

Well hopefully it comes back working better :D

Thanks for the kudos, guys.

I should mention that the strap is really comfortable, and made my watch (which already felt great on the wrist due to the Omega bracelet) feel almost like I wasn't even wearing it. I did not think the Omega bracelet weighed as much as it did. If you want an unlined shell cordovan strap, it's hard to beat one of the US retailers offering them (Leffot, LS, etc.)

Moo:

I know you like the strap, but would you recommend it? I am looking at a strap for my Speedy, but I was just wondering if you thought that $140.00 was fair for the quality that you are receiving. I think the natural would look really cool with the Speedy.

It was a gift, so it has a bit of a special place in my heart now, so I am definitely biased. smile.gif That being said, I think they are probably a bit overpriced (I mean... 4 straps = 1 pair of shoes at this rate, right? lol8[1].gif ) but the quality is there. And the Horween stamp is worth at least $20, right?

Come on man, you know this isn't even close to true.

Yeah, I know it's mind boggling. Don't worry, not long till you're ordering 200 euro custom watch straps and thinking to yourself - what a bargain! It's all downhill from here on, heh. devil.gif

welp. there goes the thread again.
post #19438 of 35579
Don't the manufacturers themselves charge a lot more than 200 euro for an alligator strap? It's been years, but the last one I got from IWC was something like $400. Ludicrous. I'm using an ABP one now. Half the price, but probably about half the quality, too.

ffffuuuu.gif you're probably right... I am looking at a custom option for my H. Moser & Cie as we speak. No luck finding someone who can make/find me an open end genuine tan/honey gator strap.
