    Montblanc / Stainless Steel Bracelet VS Leather Strap

    On your Montblanc do you prefer Stainless steel bracelets or Leather straps. I really like the SS bracelet look, but its heavy, fingerprints and scratches easy. Leather does look classy and its lite weight, but will not stand the test of time. What are your preferences and why?

    Well, you can always get another leather strap. There are some really good 3rd party straps that wont break the bank. That being said, leather, unless its very high quality or exotic, is never as comfortable for me as a bracelet. It isnt versatile enough and Im always afraid to sweat in it.

    I prefer brackets due to the adjustability of fitting, saying that the leather band on my TH Monaco's fitted with type of clip that is adjustable minutely.

    Super old thread, but since it's been bumped, I'll give my two cents as well. Go with bracelet, especially when the band is unique, like the Timewalker's. You can get after market leather straps ordered to fit Montblanc watches pretty easily, but good luck getting a steel bracelet after market that looks as good as the original looks.

    Nice look but I believe so expensive (overpriced)

    This is just personal taste but I prefer leather over steel bracelets, though leather strap are not as durable unfortunately.

    Love the NR line. Too bad Montblanc has been de-emphasizing them for the past few years.

    I like buying with SS since I prefer brown leather anyhow.
