What’s your favourite strap

Do you look at your watch box and see  24 watches all on bracelets or nato straps or is it a sea of leather, we all have our preference. with me it’s nato straps on steel sports watches

·

It does depend on the watch but in general I think a bracelet is number 1 for me. My Pan Europ isn't meant to have a bracelet but I found one that fitted and it has turned that watch around for me.

Confirmed bracelet guy here.  Even made a post about it in the not too distant past.

IMO nothing beats a really good bracelet.  Unfortunately that means that out of my 13 watches, only four are on bracelets.

Well right now I’m on a Leather/Suede kick as of late…

A very well-made bracelet for a watch is my preference. 

Originally was a leather strap guy, but then I go my Lorier Neptune and really dug the bracelet. Then I got my Speedmaster on it's bracelet and it was fantastic, and recently for the 1WC I got the Uncle Seiko jubilee for my SARB033 and made me want to wear the watch much more than on it's OEM strap.

My favorite leather strap is my Two Stitch Honey Leather, but that's also my highest quality one (the others being all less than $20 CAD)

Single pass strap 4 life.

For me it's mostly a sea of leather. The odd nato/rubber/plastic/canvas strap amongst them - just two bracelets in a collection of 40 watches. The two bracelets are by Seiko and SanMartin, and the Seiko one is not particularly comfortable, but I like SanMartin's. I prefer my watches generally light on the wrist.

  1. Bracelet (as long as not made by Seiko 🤣🤦🏻‍♂️)
  2. Nato but single pass only please (known to chop unnecessarily flip flap away)
  3. Rubber… FKM though, no cheap silicon dust magnets. 
     

and my wife dares to say I’m fussy 😤😂

Given the Florida humidity, Vanguard rubber strap on my BB58

I’m so indecisive. I love a well-done bracelet on a sports watch. I also love a single-pass nato and leather on field watches. I also love rubber straps on divers, especially in bright colors in the summer. 

·

I used to be all bracelet all the way.  Sailcloth became my gateway into other straps.   Now I wear leather, sailcloth, single pass nato and even some rubber.  I still think certain watches only look good on a bracelet. 

·

Bracelet if the watch came with one, rotating to NATO quite a bit throughout summer on dive watches. NATO on Flieger in summer. I love the look and feel of leather more than anything, but they don't come out until it cools off. 

·

I can't stand NATO. I don't see the point in them either.

I'm like @Ichibunz where the use of bracelets and straps depend on the vibe I get for the day or week, and also on the need or occasion (e.g. dinner date out or have a client meeting, etc.). I've been on a bracelet kick of late, but now moving into a canvas strap phase. Generally, I like to mix it up from time to time. 

·

I'm all over the map. Bracelet if I want to dress it up, single pass nato (C&B Chevron are really nice) for most days and rubber for swimming. Works great for travel - bring one watch and several bands.

I mostly have rubber and leather straps, I quite like them, but now I’m leaning towards bracelets. I’ve bought 3 watches the last month and I’ve ordered bracelets for all 3.
