    I suspect that if the watch brand in question doesn't begin with 'R' or 'O', then many people here wouldn't demean themselves by admitting knowing what it was!!

    Nothing wrong with Rotary or Oris

    One of my former reps asked me to take some links out of his Panerai bracelet. It was still very loose round his wrist flopping round but he said that's how he liked wearing it. Myself? just like it loose enough to get a finger under. I like one of my Citizen bracelets with the sliding micro adjustment so when your wrist swells in hot weather you can quickly adjust it.

    Looks like a Sinn H Link bracelet?

    A while back, I had a work colleague who had one of the original TAG F1s on a bracelet. He wore it in completely conventional style until one day he turned up with it seriously loose dangling under his wrist (I presume he must have left the diver's extension open and put the clasp to the longest position). He wore it like this for a couple of months and then suddenly reverted to normal wearing. I always wondered what prompted such a radical change - it was clearly something he'd decided to do. The watch got rather a battering worn like that, so maybe he wanted to go for the WABI look?

    My partner does that ; she says it’s because her wrist gets hot. So, normal bracelet size in cooler weather; dangling , undone, in hot conditions. One day she’l probably lose it.

    Another aspect to this is people who wear their watch upside down, so the face is on the underside of their wrist, they give that hand twist to read the time, not for me but Id like to know why people prefer this..

    Common (or used to be) among those who spend a lot of time driving, hence the watch is on the side of the wrist which is more visible if holding the wheel.

    This is acceptable for tool watches,not for dress.

    I used to when I was younger - I think I just liked being a bit different. I also found it could be more comfortable if your watch had a prominent crown that could dig into your hand if you wore it normally.
