How high/low and tight/loose do you wear your watch?

  1. Tight high behind wrist bone?
  2. Loose so it slides down? (You crazy son of a bish!)
  3. Extremely loose so it's more on the hand?

Right above my wrist bone so that my wrist can actually bend. Preferred if it doesnt move!

Ideally a bracelet needs to be loose enough that the watch just about slumps down when you lower your arm. On a strap it needs to be tight enough not to move. In either case there would be no noticeable sliding around of the watch on your wrist. 

·

My index finger needs to be able to pass under between the underside of the wrist and the strap/bracelet.  If two finger can fit its too loose, if one finger can't fit it is too tight.

·

Just above the wrist bone (mine is very prominent) as tight as possible not to feel discomfort.

·

Low between the wrist bone and hand. It’s not for everyone, but this is my sweet spot. On my wrist it stabilizes the watch with a proper strap.

·

High and tight.  Somewhere on the haircut scale between military recruit and "sir, your political views are concerning".

I'm in the high n tight brigade,can't stand a watch sliding about, totally impractical and the movement makes me think the things going to fall off. Maybe it's because I mostly wear chunky divers. Mind you I did try this as an experiment

Definitely come to the conclusion high n tight for me (and one watch at a time😉)

Yeah loose only works with lightweight watches that don't have pokey crowns. My titanium Casio is only 1oz / 28g. But then it's really comfy that way sometimes. So much air flow and it doesn't move as much as you'd think.

loose enough around my neck

I remember a fashion thing with the jeunesse dorée in my town, they'd always wear their Rolexes etc. on bracelets that were extremely loose. Ah, the sound of jangly bracelets, clinking of champagne glasses, and the laughter of rich people ...
