Hermes Expert Needed: Collier de Chien Bracelet

O.G.
Hello,

I was wondering about the o-ring on the Collier de Chien bracelet, and whether it can fall side to side which hits against the pyramids (like the black & silver CDC below) or if the o-ring must always face up and down to fall against the metal leaving smile-shaped wear?

Here's a photo of both directions, is this just a change over time or preference? I am not seeing many side-to-side o-ring CDC's so I would love to learn more. Thank you!

The answer is "yes" to your first 2 questions. For your 3rd question, it is a matter of preference coz the o-ring can be rotated (although i think constant rotation is not encouraged, since it will loosen the ring base over time) HTH
