    Do resin bands "break in" and size themselves?

    My left wrist is a bit deformed as a result of a quack setting it after a break when I was a child; I won't go into those details. I always start wearing my watches that have leather bands tight and eventually the leather breaks in and the watch stops migrating outward as much. Do resin bands do the same?

    When I wear my watches on my right wrist the migration problems are way less. I'm right handed though so that makes regularly wearing my watches on my right wrist a bit problematic.

    A man wearing a watch, outside of purely social functions (where, strictly speaking, a watch is not supposed to be worn), makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers his time something of value, not something to be wasted.




    A man wearing an ostentatiously expensive watch makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers little.

    From my experiences, no. Hot water and shaping to your wrist may effect it, but resin has a memory.

    For some members here though -- like Steelerswit, and Kubr1ck -- they have so much inherent "bad-a**ery" that when they put on a bad-a** watch, the energy flows from them TO the watch, making the watch EVEN MORE bad-a**!!! Yes, it's a real scientific phenomenon that obscure mad scientists only recently discovered.

    they break in to some extent, after regular wear it molds to the shape of your wrist but they def. dont resize.
    as mr wit said, dropping the band in boiling water will soften it a bit if you have a model with a particularly stiff band eg. 9000 mudman, mudmaster, some protreks then the heat will help curve it. just drop the hot band into a coffee mug or suitable sized cyclinder to let it cool in the curve you want.
    when i put my g's away i buckle them to try and keep the curve close to my wrist size. now if only it was that easy to do the same with my butt groove in the couch....
