Speedy: Bracelet vs Strap

Hi everyone:

Thanks for the advice.

Don’t mind the OEM bracelet, but I have a Ball Engineer which has a more comfortable bracelet. The Speedy bracelet has a rougher feel to it. The watch itself is wonderful!

The speadmaster works great on many strap options

leather strap or nato... I have never used the bracelet... It is not bad, but I think that a strap or a nato feel more natural to the speedmaster Cheers
