bracelet all the way for me. Just not a big fan of leather or rubber straps. Rubber is a little better for me, but bracelet all the way if I can pick.

great title to the thread, lol

i have about 2/3 of my collection on bracelet's and 1/3 on straps -leather or rubber

i am open to any but didnt realize i do have a stronger preference towards the bracelets!!

i have also in some situations changed out a bracelet for a strap - and in the majority of them changed back to the bracelet - so i guess my predominate preference is evident!

good topic Alan!!

Bracelets first, leather or exotic straps second, rubber occassionally. Like'em all. In that order. Rubber is the one that I am most critical of as there are alot of low quality ones out there. Same can be said though about leather as well. JMO.

It will indeed be Arnie, I am going to start wearing these styles, and size watches during the summer months..... On my big toe while wearing sandals. I thought Rip man you can not only find a use for older watches, but start a new trend at the same time! Whatcha think?:%

I like 'em all. It all depends on the watch. I've moved more towards bracelets but I like leather and rubber on the right watch....

Bracelets all the way........rubber is second, and appropriate on some dive watches , but it has to be good quality rubber, like the ones on a oceanaire, or the rubber on the sinns........leather.......well, that is a never, i will not purchase a watch on a leather strap at all anymore.......

I HAVE MOSTLY BRACELETS BUT HAVE FOUND STRAPS CONFORTABLE , LEATHER OVER A PERIOD OF TIME WEARS ,CRACKS AND HAVE TO BE REPLACED. IF I REALLY LIKE THE WATCH AND IT COMES ON LEATHER I CAN ALWAYS GET A BRACELET.

For years a bracelet guy but been wearing thick 5MM leather straps with a spartan buckle. got to be a spartan because they are so much thicker than a pre-v and not as wide!! Really dig BJstraps (ridinfool) at another spot!
