Cool straps on Chronographs Part1 > Speedmaster

Today i want to show you some nice style that might not been so widely known for most people. Of course most Speedmaster lovers will have seen it. It's an funky style. But not only that. It was even worn in space like that.
We might all know that the Omega Speedmaster was worn on the trip to the moon. And the first watch on the moon. And most of us know the image of the Speedmaster worn on an nylon strap to fit over the the space suite.

But maybe it wasn't just only me who was less common with the look of the Speedmaster with an steel JB Champions bracelet. And the fact that also astronauts have been wearing their Speedmaster's on these kind of straps into space. Like Neil Armstrong etc..

There are different variations of that strap. The first one has the mesh structure on the outside. Like on this early and rarer 105.002 Speedmaster from 1962.

And i just bought 2 NOS bracelets. Which have the straight links at the outside and the mesh inside.
As seen on my 105.003 from 1965.

 But there are more variations. For me the straight end links looks so cool with these early speedmasters. That what i like most about it. Also i love to wear my speedmasters on a leather nato strap which give them a real tool watch feeling. For once in a while it's great to leap back in time and wear them like the guys in the 60th.
