    How to wear your watch

    I am new to the whole watch world. I recently bought my first watch. I have it snug enough where it doesn't wobble around, but also doesn't cut off circulation. I also wear it between the bone of my wrist and the palm of my hand. This placement seems to feel most natural and best. However, my hand moves around enough where (I believe it's called the crown, the outer most knob) constantly digs into the top side of my hand.

    I am just curious about how you folks wear your watches? Is this a normal thing that happens? Or, do you wear it further up your arm?


    Thanks for the input everybody.

    I don't think there's a right or wrong way, wherever it's most comfy. I usually have mine right above the wrist bone.

    Haha, yeah I guess that only makes sense, huh? It just seemed, maybe a little awkward to have it up the arm, past the wrist bone.

    I wear mine just above the wrist bone; the problem with wearing them below the bone is that this is where your wrist bends, so, unless you wear your watches loose, they will always dig into the back of your hand.

    Personally, I wear bracelets somewhat loose (as your wrist will expand in warm weather) and wear watches on straps so they fit fairly snugly. I wear all watches above my wrist. I wear my Kobold to strengthen my left arm and wear my U-Boat a bit further up my arm and use it as a shield...

    The best way to wear a watch is so it's comfortable on your wrist.

    I wear my watch on a bracelet snug on top of my wrist bone, I find it to be comfortable and it doesn't move around all that much.

    I wear mine loose so it can move a bit freely but not to the point where the watch flops around my wrist..i wear it above my wrist bone

    Not only depends on the shape of your wrist but also the shape of the watch especially the caseback. Each watch I own I wear differently as it's relative to this and of course the kind of strap or bracelet.

    I wear mine loose enough that it's just about right when my wrist gets swollen. Usually when i work or when it's a really hot day.
    It doesn't matter how much the watch costs, it only matters if it makes your heart tick.
