Interesting. I find there are watches I prefer on a bracelet and watches I prefer on a strap. I think some vintage Rolex sport watches look good on a strap, but I would always rather have one on a bracelet. I actually struggle to think of a watch that I like enough on both that I would choose to have it on both a strap and a bracelet. I guess I prefer my dress watches on straps and my sports watches on bracelets (with the exception being , I'd rather have a Panerai on a strap than a bracelet).
I think if I were on a deserted island for years at a time, I wouldn't need a dress watch so I'd probably just have a Sub or GMT. I'd never subject my RO to the punishment that my older Rolex watches were subjected to, mostly because its too nice, a bit more delicate, and more costly to care for...but provided I didn't have to wear it for really punishing activities, its the watch that could bring me closest to being a 1 watch person....although I think I'd still need a Rolex for really more more rigorous activities, and a dress watch on a strap for really dressy events. Oh well, so much for thinking I could be a 1 watch kind of guy!
