5 Best Straps For Omega Speedmaster

5 Best Straps For Omega Speedmaster

The OMEGA Speedmaster is one of the most iconic and best-selling chronograph watches, and was in fact the first OMEGA to reach space in 1962. Since then, it has been a part of all six lunar missions - including Apollo 11 in 1969, during which Aldrin and Armstrong became the first men to walk on the moon - the Swiss marque’s Speedmaster Professional Chronograph (to give it its technical name) has become one of the brightest stars in the watch firmament. Today, it is still used by NASA astronauts in OMEGA Speedmaster X-33 form.

A luxury watch should reflect its owner’s unique personality and taste. As such, watch straps represent the perfect way to customise the OMEGA Speedmaster timepiece and make it truly yours. But with so many options out there, it can be hard knowing which straps are best suited for the Speedmaster. Of course, OMEGA  have their very own suitable watch straps for the Speedmaster, but it can be more interesting seeing what combinations you can create with aftermarket straps. 

Here, we help narrow down your options and bring you 5 of our best straps for the OMEGA Speedmaster. These will also look great on the new Omega x Swatch MoonSwatch

  3. Forstner President 1450 Bracelet

3. Forstner President 1450 Bracelet

 Straps For Omega Speedmaster

The vintage OMEGA 1450 Bracelet has been famously praised as "one of the best Speedmaster bracelets that has been produced," and is now routinely labelled the "holy grail" of OMEGA bracelets

The Forstner President 1450 Bracelet is a recreation of the fan-favourite 1450 OMEGA bracelet (including true-to-original rounded solid H-shaped end pieces), with some extra features for convenience and comfort. 

Each rounded link is slightly different in size, and the end pieces are curved so that they don't make direct contact with the lug ends, for a true recreation of that classic style. The bracelet features a fully brushed texture and is made of hi-spec 316L stainless steel, making it durable and dependable in hostile conditions. To ensure optimal comfort throughout the day without need for adjustment, Forstner has included two “stretchy” links behind the clasp.
