    The face seems to get in the way when I've tried it face down.

    Face up so as not to damage the crystal face of the watch.

    I quit wearing watches a long time ago. So any way you wear one is weird!

    I usually don't but if I wear my gshock I'll sometimes do it.

    I also learned from either a TV show or movie that if you wear your watch like you do with a drink in that hand and someone asks for the time, you will spill your drink in them as opposed to your self. Lol.

    You're weird, and so am I. I couldn't even tell you when or why I started doing it, but now it's completely natural. And it feels weird when I try to flip it the other way.

    Always amuses me when a member of this forum wonders if they're weird. Of course you are or you wouldn't be here! :rofl:

    But to answer the question, I also wear my watch on the inside as shown above.

    Another weirdo. :alien: Wearing it that way has saved the crystal from more bumps and scratches than I can count. It also seems to make my large watches "wear" better. When wearing my larger watches face up, the watch seems to have a higher center of gravity and "flop" more. Kind of a poor explanation, but I hope you get the gist. Anyone else experience this?

    You're not alone, broski. I find that I catch my watch on stuff a lot less when it's worn on the "inside". It's also a lot easier for me to keep track of the time when I'm writing (I'm a leftie)

    My step dad wears his like that. I think he started to do it when he drove a bus. Easier to see with the big steering wheel because you don't need to move your forearm toward you; you just rotate your wrist.

    I tried but couldn't get into it.

    Tappity, tap, tap...

    When I was younger and wore digitals I used to wear them that way. Now, I'm wearing face up 24/7. I just tried wearing my Orange Monster face down and it really limited my hand movement and was just plain uncomfortable...doesn't work for me.

    Wear what you like how you like...

    I kind of wear mine on the side. That way when my arms are crossed in meetings, I can see what time it is without moving.

    When I read the thread title, I thought you meant you wear the watch upside down. That would be weird.

    Strange! Can't see the purpose of wearing it like that.
