I prefer bracelets.
I have five watches that came with straps an I had four fitted with OEM bracelets and one with an after market bracelet.
One I haven't found a suitable bracelet for and I don't mind wearing it. In fact, I like wearing it, but there's something about a bracelet that I prefer.
A deployant clasp on a leather band appeals to me, but I haven't bothered to actually try one yet.
