    Go anywhere, do anything.

    I'd say Rubber/Silicone.

    Bracelet is great, but depending on activity, can either get scratched/dinged/scraped, OR, scrape something else (IE: bracelet damage a nice laptop keyboard).

    So, Rubber/Silicone being soft and durable, would not get damaged or damage other things during activity.

    Btw great watch choice.

    I think I'd agree and say it's best on the bracelet however I'll go a bit different and suggest two options

    Canvas strap. Possibly cordura as they are really hard wearing but do wear more charmingly with age.
    What I like about them is they can, given right colour and stitch finish look "reasonably" smart but have a nice casual sporty or vintage military vibe. They dry quite quickly and don't get sticky/grippy or clammy like some rubber straps on wrist.

    Someone with a ball fireman even had my exact idea

    Then I love the look of bracelets but have very slim wrists and find clasps can be sore after a while so what about Milanese mesh, lighter and again more sporty but still classy. Many many types out there and a retro vibe that I think would work well with the balls classic sport watch look.

    I have a Fireman Enterprise and I love it, and I think he will too. From your description, he doesn't sound like someone that will change straps often, if at all, unless you change them for him. Even at that, unless you have a bracelet changing tool, it can be a pain to put a bracelet back on with just a strap tool.

    My first recommendation to is keep it on the bracelet (but then again, I like bracelets). The Enterprise bracelet doesn't have micro adjustments, so getting a fit he likes might be challenging, and it will most likely either be a little loose or a little tight for his taste (I actually like when my bracelet is just a little loose and the watch moves, so the lack of a perfect fit didn't bother me). I have a big wrist and used the bracelet with all the links.

    If he's not a bracelet guy, a leather or rubber strap is a good option, especially on that watch. One thing to consider is that Ball makes a leather-looking rubber strap. I have one that came on my Fireman Victory (pics below). I've never worn mine because OEM straps are just a little too small for me, but it is really good quality. You could try checking with a Ball AD to see if you can buy one. Rob at Topper can probably help. The Victory and Enterprise have the same case so it should fit, and the Fireman looks great on leather (the picture of my silver dial Victory is on a HR leather strap).

    I second the Barton straps if his wrist is 7.5" or smaller. I find them just a little too small for my 7.75" - 8" wrist. I just recently bought a leather Barton for my brother. Bartons also have quick change spring bars, so he can easily swap between leather for dress and rubber for work. Otherwise, I second the Hirsch performance straps.
