    Dealing with knit cuffs?

    My search came up with people wearing watches under dress shirt cuff, but how do you guys deal with knit cuffs? With the cold weather, I've been wearing a lot of sweatshirts. As trivial as it may sound, I am having issues wearing my watch with these knitted cuffs. Either it is directly under the cuff stretching it out, or winds up too forward and pushing against my hand. If I loosen the strap and let it ride higher up my arm it likes to flop around then winds up loose under the cuff, then migrates beyond it to be pushed against my hand anyway. I've resorted to wearing the watch strapped over the cuff.

    Just wondering if this bothers anyone else and what they do.

    My knit sleeves extend to the hand. My watch is high enough up that it doesn't stretch them. However, I don't wear anything bigger than 40mm x 13mm and more often 38mm x 11mm. Do you wear a larger watch?

    Pretty much all are divers. 40-45mm some are rather tall, as much as 15mm. But I still have an issues with the smaller thinner watches.

    You've GOT to be kidding me! .... Never in my life have I ever heard such!

    You must be a young millennial because only millennials could possibly have such a damn crazy problem like that.

    My advice .... stop wearing tight sweaters (and skinny jeans, too, for that matter).

    Honestly, I feel like I must be on one of those PUNKED tv shows.

    Sorry, not an entitled sweater & skinny jeans wearing hipster millennial. Just a 46 y.o. sweatshirt and jeans guy with a damn crazy problem. I guess people who wear sleeveless flannel shirts wouldn't have such a problem.

    Yeah I have that problem with some Tommy Bahama half zip flips too. For bigger watches I just push the watch forward outside the cuff. Smaller ones fit inside the cuff ok.

    I avoid knit cuffs for the aformentioned reason and opt for dressier pullovers without them...

    So let me get this right that stretchy stuff that makes up the end of the sleeve of your sweat shirt stretches too much?

    Since you are able to attach it outside the sleeve your wrists can't be very big, since I could never do that with any band I own, tighten the strap on your wrist and wear your sweatshirt, you sure can't be stretching it too much, with any watch.

    As far as stretching, it's a freaking sweatshirt, in your entire life you never pulled up your cuffs towards your elbows? Seriously, wearing it attached to the cuff? Try that look and this question at a football game. Ask the refs (they wear watches) it should make for a great moment.

    Good luck in solving how to fit something under something that stretches.
