Steel goes on at Memorial Day and comes back off at Labor Day.

For you foreigners, that means steel in summer only.

I'm in Houston and it's still in the 80s so nowhere close to winter here. But when it does get to winter I switch to leather or nato straps cause I'm afraid of the cold metallic touch.

Wow, that's a lot of snow. Are you in the Rockies?

I do swap bracelets for straps in the cooler months. My Speedmaster Pro will change its outfit in a couple of weeks.

Good guess, hit the nail on the head
We always seem to have about a month of fall and then get hit with a lot of snow, so “fall” feels like a pretty short season up here

I own zero !bracelets.

So I guess it's no question.

I wear bracelets year round, but I'm starting to experiment a little with leather and some rubber.

I wear bracelets most of the time snow or not.

No, I don't do a certain type of strap or bracelet for each of the four seasons. If I do take the bracelet off my Oris, it will be because I feel the need for a change or different look and not because it is minus celsius out.

Nah. I have two on leather that I wear more in the winter. Then in the summer the bracelet watches get more action. I usually prefer the watch on either bracelet or leather and don’t like the look of the other option

I never change due to season but I never really changed from a bracelet anyway. Just in the last month or so have I bought a bunch of leather and canvas to switch things up. Been fun

I was never much for bracelets... except for my diver, which came on one that was actually nice. So I do switch by season, but it's not leather <-> bracelet, it's leather <-> NATO.

I generally wear perlon and single pass NATO in spring and summer, swapping to two-piece leather in autumn and winter. For whatever reason, steel bracelets never seem to stay on my watches unless they're integrated. It didn't matter what the watch was, $300 Seiko or $3000 Omega, the same pattern held.

I gravitate towards more colourful canvas and rubber straps in summer and more leather in colder seasons. I do like a brown leather strap in autumn and winter when i find myself wearing brown leather shoes/boots a lot these days.
