I sure hope this becomes a 'sticky' some day...
Why I advocate that straps be attached to wrist-watches with the buckle end at the '6' rather than at the customary '12'.
With the buckle end at the '6' ,when the wearer twists their wrist to read the time, the signed buckle, is displayed to onlookers, who at close proximity can thus read the buckle 'signature' or logo (if any). When straps are oriented in the traditional fashion (attached at the '12'), the tag end is presented to onlookers and if the buckle is visible, it will show the signature upside down,and the tag can be caught up in all manner of 'snares'.
I've noticed that in the past, the exposed tag end of my watches would frequently become caught in nearby 'snares' particularly in my location photography assignments. Impediments and traps such as, coat sleeves, luggage straps, door handles, domestic and professional gear, the dog's collar, and the such-would somehow become caught as I passed my hand askance. This predicament is simply annoying and results in frequent readjustment of the dislodged keepers and tag ends.
I recently consulted with some experts in the Dutch police and discovered from them that pick-pockets depend on the exposed strap tag ends as a starting point for relieving gentlemen of their finer timepieces. Relocating the tag end to face the inside of the wearer, mitigates watch theft considerably.
A final benefit of this simple modification is that in photographs where a recumbent wrist watch is being displayed, the watch case becomes the 'head' and the buckle the 'tail'. This seems to sit well with me when arranging my photographs. In that respect... >>here is my portfolio<< .
I'll let you be the judge.
