    Omega Speedmaster Pro Eye Candy

    So a lot lot of talk about Speedy these past few weeks on TZUK and I thought why not share a couple of my favorite watch shots of my favorite watch. Now I've had a few watches over the years, but this one has a very special sentimental meaning to me. I've had cheaper watches, more expensive watches, more special ones but the Speedy Pro will always be my favorite and remind me of the good times (this is the sentimental part). And it's the only watch I have that I don't really care what the value will be in the next years, as long as I have a roof on top of my head and my health, this one stays put. People call it the ultimate classic, and they are right. For more than 50 years the design hasn't changed one bit and it's one of those strap whores that goes well with everything. Well enough about it, here are some shots/wristshots, hope you like them

    Great photos! I've tried a few different straps on mine but I prefer the feel of the bracelet.

    Stunningly, stunning photos.

    I said on another thread that I really should consider getting a Pro at some point. These shots may mean that day comes sooner than planned!

    Thanks for sharing them.

    Is this the most versatile watch ever?

    Great photos. Annoying, because I've just convinced myself the next one in will be a Black Bay, then you post those absolute beauties. Enjoyed the use of "strap whore" as well.

    Fantastic Nono, you are extremely talented and your photography style is innovative. Do you work in the arts or is this just a passion, because Omega needs to hire you!

    Fantastic shots as always! Thanks for sharing.

    I always think tan straps work really well on a speedy but that green strap combo works too - any more details on the strap?

    Amazing photos. I have tried nato straps (plain ones) but always end up coming back to the bracelet.

    Get some ideas for natos to try.

    Great shots, the Speedy Pro is the most versatile watch for straps ever.
    I particularly like the green NATO with the yellow stripe.
    Cheers..

    Amazing photos, thanks for sharing.

    I am only recently building up my watch collection but my first expensive watch was also a speedy pro and it was a present from my wife (well I chose it but she knew I was after a watch for years) on becoming a father. So plenty of sentimental value for me as well!

    I have never tried changing the straps as I am too petrified of doing something to it. Is it easy?

    Stunning photos and selection of straps. One addition I would nominate is the Forstner mesh band, which looks killer on the Speedy Pro!

    Great pictures as normal! These photos make me pine for my Speedie back. Yet when I had it I admired it yet rarely wore it!

    Thank you. Most versatile ? I think it lacks some features for this, but one of the bunch, it really is.

    Sure, it's the green NATO from cheapestnatostraps, you can find it on their website

    Great way to start the collection. And as for changing the straps, it really is easy. All you need to have is a quality springbar tool like Bergeon 6767-F

    Thank you again Guys for all your comments. Here few older ones, same theme but different angles. Cheers

    These are beautiful shots. Iíd love to know your setup.

    A speedy pro (and a dive watch - no idea what) is next on my hit-list. This is helping!

    Omega Speedmaster Pro Eye Candy

    Please stop posting great photos of the Speedy. I sold mine a number of years ago (before big price rises and with an additional mitsukoshi dial) because, on bracelet, it was just a touch too large for me. Why didnít I just buy a Nato!!!

    Really great photos. I haven't ever owned one bit did buy one for my brother for his 40th. I'd love to add one to the collection one day, but probably an older tritium one.
