So what's your preference?
Loose, like jewelry
Not too loose, not too tight
Tight, zero movement
So what's your preference?

I see pics all the of time of folks who wear their watches so tight it looks like they are cutting of circulation to their hands... no idea how they do it

Why would you wear it so tight, that when you take it off it looks like you had handcuffs on?
I wear mine loose but, not so loose that it can spin on the wrist. Nine months out of the year it's warm and humid where I live. The temps in the summer often reach 100 degrees F, or higher, and sometimes with 100% humidity. Maybe this has something to do with why I wear them that way. They're cooler and my wrist doesn't get as sweaty with them loose.

I wear mine fairly loose, but not to the point that it spins around easily. I find that in the summertime in Southern California my wrist tends to swell a little more than average. The way I have the bracelet I can keep my wrist cool and ventilated. On the flip side, when it's cool, it does sit a little loose, but it's not that frequent since I'm pretty active during the day.
Another reason is that keeping the bracelet a little on the loose side helps me when diving. The waters out here are a little cooler, so wearing a 7mm suit and gloves tend to thicken the wrist area, and even with the diving extension it can get a little tight. It's never been a problem with the 750 series, although I ran into problems with the 5000T Pro. In order to fit on my wrist when diving, I had to add an additional link - the extension wasn't enough, as I was missing the micro-adjustment that can be found on the bead of rice bracelet.
That's my opinion, and I'm sticking to it.
I wear my bracelet loose enough that it moves around a bit on the wrist, but not so loose that you can take your other hand and "spin the watch" all the way around the wrist. Does that make any sense?? That is my gauge.......If I can spin the watch all the way around my wrist, it is too loose.
why I now own the Sub 5000t. Microadjust bracelet. I wear it almost snug but you won't see marks on my wrist. If my wrist swells a little, open it up a notch.
I agree with Subkrawler, I wear it loose but not so loose that is can spin all the way around. I can't take the feeling of a tight watch which is why I don't use the rubber strap.
If I could do math I wouldn't have to work nights.

I don't have a doxa yet and since the poll is about "how do you wear your Doxa" I'm not gonna use the poll.
I will be back on tuesday (yes I'm excited!)
I wear mine just like most of the rest....
Loose, but not so loose that the watch will spin on my wrist. If it is too tight, it gets very uncomfortable to me.
