    Ok guys, so I just ordered an Omega Speed master.
    The manual winding one with the clear back.

    Anyways, I'm not a big fan of the SS brace.
    It's ok, but I was thinking of a brown leather strap for a more casual look and less sporty.
    My style is hippie meets preppy if that helps.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    you should sell that speedmaster to me for a heavy discount.

    dont know what brown strap would look good with a speedmaster, but i'd put it on a di modell rallye strap right away

    Oooh, I feel like I have not seen anything in this thread that really interested me...but I like this.

    too similar to my black mako to warrant a pickup though...

    edit: not that it is actually *that* similar...just that I don't really need another black faced watch like that.
