Proper way to wear a watch?!

I cannot see the first pictures, but I wear a watch close to/on the wrist, close to the hand. I prefer mine slightly loose, as well, so they sometimes droop a bit onto the hand.

I see this occasionally with rings, too, where people wear them closer to the middle knuckle instead of at the base of the finger. That strikes me as very odd (and very easy to lose a ring), but I suppose anything that is different from how someone normally does things seems odd.

I wear mine higher up like the first picture. Besides personally liking the look better, if I wear it lower it will start to irritate my wrist bone and become painful.

I wear my watches a little loose, so there's some play in where they fall. My hairdresser wears Michael kors-type watches VERY loose, and she pushes them way up on her arm. Each to their own!

Wear your watch however it is most comfortable for you!

How do you keep it so far up your arm? It doesn't look very comfortable.
Lol thats what my bf says! Im very OCD about my watches moving around. Bracelets can move around all they want but I like when my watch is stationary. so I found that keeping it as high as it can fit keeps it one place and it's very comfortable

LOL this is a funny thread! You would hate the way I wear my watch, so loose it can move and turn completely around! I like wearing my watch pretty loose so that there is a visible gap. My wrist is 6 inches I think and I'm pretty sure my watch is 6.5 inches to give you an idea, so I need about .5 inch wiggle room to feel comfortable in it.

I bet you guys are a cute couple~
