    Where do you wear your strap?

    From the pictures on here it seems like a lot of you wear your watch strapped on your wrist bone or even ahead of it. Is this just for photographic purposes?

    Depends on your weight and arm structure. My guess is heavy people have arms that taper to the hand thus wear a watch closer to the hand. Thinner people have the watch farther down the arm since the wrist bone is more prominent thus keeping the watch from hitting the hand (this is my case).

    Yeah, everyone is different but as a rightie, the top right lug ideally just barely touches the protruding wrist bone. I guess reverse that if you wear the watch on your right hand.
    Choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life because that field isn't hiring.

    ^^^ Yeah this is a good point but I find it also thickness of the same of the watch. I personally have a prominent wrist bone but have no trouble wearing thinner watches past my wrist bone where some of my thicker (divers and pilots) will wear before my wrist bone.

    My wrist is different sizes during the day and in different temperatures. A watch can go from tight to fairly loose a few times a days so it's slides up and down which is fine as long as it can't spin around my wrist.

    Above the wrist at the narrowest part of the arm. It stays in place, there, and doesn’t slide down and bruise the back of your hand.

    I wear them fairly loose so they move about depending on the position of the arm.

    Like this. (Yes, the crystal on this watch does have some blemishes.) Why? It's how I've worn my watch since I was old enough to have a watch (so maybe 35 years)... so never gave it much though. But it works for me!

    I wear mine about as close to the start of my hand as possible. Bugs me when it starts to ride up the arm.
