    Strap or bracelet?

    Hello All,

    here are two pics of my TM Voyager GMT Power Reserve. Which do you like better - the bracelet or the strap. I currently have the strap on and find it very comfortable. I also like how one can see more of the watch between the lugs.

    I would like to get other opinions also.

    (If the pics don't show up I'll have to try again).

    Hmmm... tough call. I'm generally more of a strap guy, but I have to say I really like the fit and look of that bracelet. So I think I give the bracelet just a slight edge over the strap. BUT, I get the sense that you slightly prefer the strap, in which case I would strongly recommend you stick with that. I'm a strong supporter of people wearing what they like best, over all else.

    I still love that Voyager GMT PR.

    Regards,

    Jeff,

    I put the strap on yesterday. It is still going through its "wear test". You are correct, the bracelet fits and looks great. Although, I can't say it has never pulled on the hair on my wrist.

    Either way, it is nice to have the option to wear one or the other. Switching them is not too difficult.

    Eric

    First, I am a strap guy. I have a Cannonball with the same or similar bracelet and that bracelet is a work of art. Just killer.

    But I put it on a cutom gator strap that I had made for it, and it has never left the watch.

    Like em both, but I vote for strap.

    Cool - how/where'd you have the custom strap done? I'm assuming you didn't hunt, kill, skin, cure, and measure the gator yourself . . .
