    Do they? Can’t find them. I can find the custom strap option if that’s what you mean?

    On the lookout for a rubber strap. As far as I can tell, there’s no Omega option available that’ll fit properly is there? 21mm lugs.

    Found the one below from Hirsch which looks pretty neat, but if I can stick with OEM I’d rather.

    It’s been my first ever serious watch purchase so I’m no position to write a review really that stretches beyond phrases like: “I think it’s really pretty”

    Originally I was looking for a Speedmaster as I fell in love with the model from the first time I saw it.

    Walking passed a shop in Manchester however, on my birthday of all days, I noticed this Seamaster in the window. Price was a bit over budget but I reckoned it couldn’t hurt to have a closer look. So I did, tried it on, absolutely loved it and I made him an offer he could have easily refused as I was lowballing it. He initially told me it didn’t come with box and papers which in the end was incorrect as he simply misplaced them. So here I am, having bought myself a lovely birthday present for a price that I was quite chuffed with. I’ve had it since September, I’d still be interested in getting a Speedy simply because I want one but by no means will it replace the Seamaster. I’ve had 4 or 5 people asking about the watch whilst wearing it which is a nice compliment to get really. So far, very happy with the purchase and it’s a great looking watch both on the bracelet and on leather.

    Pelicans indeed, just prior to that I shot this one from the boat.

    Light was rapidly disappearing on this one, quite happy with the outcome though. The late hour gave it a bit of pinkish effect.
