Breitling is such a beautiful watch that it looks as good on a bracelet as it does on a rubber dive strap. Not a lot of watch designs can claim this. The last few years I have preferred my watches on a strap for comfort and adjustability. I still like the look of the bracelet as well but am curious how many other Breitling owners have migrated their Breitling over to a strap most of the time??

I find this combo to be my favourite with the CSO, doubt I'll go back to the bracelet.

Strap most of the time.

M1 on bracelet, as grayish Ti is not too showy. SO Chrono on rubber, wishing for black deploy to further reduce the "bling". Navi on leather. Crosswind Special, full bling.

I have both the strap and the bracelet as well. I like both, but my wife likes the strap better. The strap is so damn comfy, I am fine with that. :)

My Seawolf lives on the bracelet but both the canvas and rubber straps have caught my eye. One or the other will be on it for summer.

As a diver, I think the rubber strap is more fitting and gives the watch a sportier look.

Always been a fan of straps on all my watches. Much more comfortable and classy looking. I've owned over 60 watches To date and other than maybe 2 or 3, the rest went on straps right when I got them. My duo right now are both on leather straps and I don't see it ever changing.

It may sound stupid but bracelets tend to match whatever I happen to be wearing, once I put a leather or croc strap on a watch I find myself trying to match it with my shoes and or belt! Bottom line, no clear cut favorite for me!

I'm more of a bracelet guy and probably will always be. I'm still thinking of a darker brown calf for my Airborne but can't seem to pull the trigger since I'm afraid it'll just collect dust.
