    Anybody Else a High Wrist Wearer??

    just curious. The wrist is pretty much skin and bone and for me the watch sits more comfortably up my forearm, more flesh to cradle it. I don't mean far up the wrist, an inch or so. Depends on the watch. Also, to wear a heavy dive watch, leverage and impediment is minimized or maximized for leverage higher on the wrist. Again, depends on the watch.

    Do you mean like this?

    When I was young I wore watches very low because it was cool not comfortable.
    One of the great advantages of being old is that one does not have to be concerned
    with coolness. Wear it where it feels good.

    Yes, exactly, that's what and where I mean. Also, I wash my hands a lot, not Lady MacBeth or anything, but I find it the best way to not get sick. I don't want my watch getting soapy water on it two or three times a day.

    Dalstott, you got some beautiful watches. What's that last one with white dial and red/black hands?

    If you have thin wrists that stay the same size as your arm then it doesn't look strange wearing your watch high. I have a limited space where my watch wears comfortably before any changes of opening my hands wide affect the size if I had my watch sitting high.

    I wear watches very loose... I prefer the bracelet type of band and there is plenty of room between the band and my wrist - the watch is always on the under side of my wrist, not at the top.

    Also, I wear watches on my right arm even though I'm right-handed.

    It is a Yantar Submarine 24 II I bought 5 years ago. The company had a low production and closed in 2004 so not many are around. Here are some other pics plus two attached below that I borrowed from the web.
