    How do you ware your watch?

    Ive always been inclined to ware mine on the inside of my wrist.. Guess it feels more protected plus easier to glance at. I don't know why I almost never see anyone ware their watches this way.

    Face in is more protected when standing up or walking, but at a table or desk it's much more scratch prone. As a student, I spend most of my time sitting at a table or desk. Hence, I wear mine the normal way.
    Cheers,

    The only time I ever wear my watch that way is when I'm sitting reading a book held in my left hand while waiting for a train or something. I'll spin my watch around to the inside of my wrist so I can see it without turning my arm. Otherwise it feels really awkward.

    As for protecting your watch I guess it depends on what you do. If you're getting into a fistfight, sure. If you're working at a table or desk putting the watch on the inside of your wrist is just going to ensure that you slam it facedown onto the table repeatedly over the course of the day.

    I can't imagine wearing a watch that way. I use a computer all day so the face would be constantly hitting the desk. Gives a new meaning to "desk diving marks".

    Are you a woman by any chance? A lot of women tend to wear their jewelry watches like that

    A lot of men do too.

    (this in response to Haf)

    EDIT: Oh, I almost forgot. Outside of my wrist except when skiing or hiking. Then inside.

    I work with an English gentleman who wears his watch like that -- apparently, it's an inherited vintage Omega, and he is afraid of damaging it.

    I am almost tempted to say that it looks particularly effeminate, except that I do not know of a single woman who wears her watch that way.

    My father always wore his watch "face in". He had an Omega and Rolex Day-Date (an older one with a mineral crystal) and both always needed regular crystal replacements from all the scraping on desks and pants. I wear mine normally and it seems more protected to me.
    My little friends:

    Casio G-Shock GW-5000
    Casio G-Shock GD-350
    Casio G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400
    Kienzle Chronograph
    Omega Speedmaster PRO
    Orient Star Classic
    Rolex Submariner
    Seiko 007 Diver
    Seiko Turtle Diver
    Seiko SARB 021

    Seiko 7A28 Chrono

    And a few other fun watches ...

    It does look rather gauche and absurd. My father actually wore his watch like that and the face was quite marred. Still, do what you want.
