    Do you wear your watch loose or tight on your wrist ?

    Hello,

    I was just curious. An AD told me it is not recommended to wear it too loose as you can dammage the bracelet sooner.

    How do you wear it ?

    Thanks,

    I wear it fairly snug; a watch flopping around on my wrist annoys the crap out of me.

    I'm just waiting for the next "A vs. Q" or "X vs. Y" brand to come along .

    Best fit would usually end up allowing you to fit your index finger between your wrist and your bracelet. Wearing the watch loosely DEFINITELY invites trouble.

    Well, I wear watches both ways! Throughout the day my wrist seems to expand to the point where the watch doesn't move freely, but isn't tight. However in the morning, evening and after the gym, there's a fair bit of movement and sliding about. Freaky I guess...

    Cheers,

    Too tight will cut off circulation and too loose, you'll look like a gangbanger.

    I prefer a little snug when hot and a bit loose when it's cold out.

    The golden rule of thumb is tight/loose enough to slide your index finger between your wrist and bracelet.

    I'm in Dave's camp ... in the morning,getting out of bed, it's tight as a drum. I leave for work an hour later, and it's loose. It's fairly snug throughout the day, and tightens up on the way home (I live in Orlando, and ride a motorcycle; weather affects me intimately).

    During the early eve, it loosens to comfortable again, then I go to bed. The next morning, it starts all over again.

    I do not adjust during the day, as it's a PITA to keep moving the spring-bars, so I just adjust it on my arm to a comfortable fit as the situation demands.

    So Dave, no, you're not alone in this ......

    Cheers!
