    Naw, here in California (Silicon Valley) the weather is always near perfect. It never affects my watch choice.

    Often having to travel to hot and humid countries, I pretty much wear watches on bracelets only, and with room to expand if necessary. So you're not alone.

    Sure do, usually more for the strap than the watch itself. If itís going to rain a lot I wonít wear a leather strap, or a watch with lower water resistance.

    Seems reasonable to me!

    Watches and Weather

    Yes I do. Itís horses for courses. I wear my trusty 300m WR Submariner when the weather bureau forecasts rain and I wear my Omega Speedmaster when it is a bone dry day.

    I donít like my leather straps getting wet and yuck.

    Not the weather per se, but rather the conditions the watch will be exposed to. If itís a hot and sunny day and Iím going to be doing something on the water, then Iíll reach for my solar Tuna.

    If itís going to be a hot, muggy day and Iím going to be doing work/exercise outside, especially if sunscreen and/or insect repellent will be required, then Iíll reach for something on a bracelet, as I can clean the watch easier in the shower that follows.

    I wonít wear anything vintage or anything on leather if Iím going to be outside in hot, muggy weather, but I have no problem if Iím going to be inside all day.

    Re: Watches and Weather

    I'm worried about the leather band of my watch, BUT i like the look so much =( I probably need a new strap soon after 2 years of subjecting the leather to humid conditions. If only there's a strap that LOOKS like leather on the outside, but has some sort of silicon or something lining part that comes in contact with your wrist. Getting the watch dry enough to be comfortable to wear takes too long. hahahaha

    You'll be glad to hear that rubber-lined leather straps exist and are very much a thing!

    In Vegas so zero on the humidity meter but! hot hot HOT. Usually go with a rubber or leather band. So yes it does effect my choice of watches.
