The Omega Speedmaster watch seems to make any watch strap look great and this military inspired bund watch strap is no different. The white stitching on this bund strap accents the white of the watch hands and dial perfectly.
This has become a firm favourite of Speedy owners looking to wear their iconic timepiece on something different. The Speedmaster was, of course, originally worn to the Moon on a velcro NATO. Practical, if not altogether stylish.
The bund watch strap itself has its own place in history. It was originally worn by German airmen in the Luftwaffe and was designed to stop the lump of steel, the watch, painfully freezing against the wrist. It also has the added benefit for soldiers that it would stop perspiration from entering the watch. its protection from bullets and shells was far more limited. Nonetheless the bund strap became the standard strap for those in the military. It now has a strong aesthetic appeal alongside its fascinating history.
Approx 220mm long - dependant on watch face size.
The strap comes with attractive stainless steel fixings as standard. These are both strong and resist corrosion.
