No. I just don't wear leather if I know it's going to get wet.

I never wear a metal bracelet, as nice as they may look. I usually put all my watches on either a leather strap or a nato/zulu. Sometimes I do both and use a leather zulu. If I know I'll be swimming then I'll make sure my watch is on nylon, but if it's just some rain or snow, then I don't worry about the leather. Most of my leather straps I make anyway, so I don't feel too bad if they wear out quicker than they should; since they don't cost me too much to replace, even if made with chromexcel.

Spring in my part of the world (South America) although Winter is staging a late fightback at the moment. Nope, don't swap out straps or bracelets based on seasons although I will go for a bracelet and good water resistance when we get hit by tropical storms.

That's odd, since the autumnal equinox in the northern hemisphere was just 20 days ago. Pretty sure it's still fall here in the States.

I'm a 95%-of-the-time bracelet-guy. I am a leather freak (bring on the jokes) so I do like leather watch bands but unless I tighten them to the point of too much, most of them put my watch off center on my wrist and it drives me crazy.
I wear bracelets in winter. I use leather for other activities.....:)

Autumn for me.

Dont change the watch bracelet or strap for any reason other than a change of look, seasons don’t alter anything.

Bracelets year-round except for watches that have nice rubber. Then those go on during the hot season.

Yeah, we get plenty of cold winter here, but I don't get out much, with only 1 leg. And I have enough watches on bracelets or straps so no changing is needed.

We get four full seasons, it's now fall here. I do not have seasonal strategy with straps and bracelets.

Most of my watches with bracelets end up on a dive or fabric strap for the summer as i’m in the water a lot. I’m fine with bracelets in the winter.

I usually switch to leather in the colder months because my wrist circumference seems to fluctuate more, so it's easy to just move the buckle to a different hole depending on that.

Since they expanded daylight time (when was that, 2008? can't remember...) by two months, normally I use the clock change as my indicator to switch from bracelet to leather. This year I jumped on it a few weeks early though.

So that means I'm about 7.5 months with bracelet, 4.5 months with leather.

The only exception to this is I don't put leather on divers. It just looks wrong to me. Those stay on bracelets year round.
