    Face down does not work for me at all. Prefer no watch at all, but when I have to wear it I'm a conventional kind of watch wearer and have the face up.

    PS in answer to your OP, face down seems weird to me, but as for you I cannot comment as wearing a watch in a weird way does not necessarily make you weird.

    I don't want to say you're weird but I could never understand how people wear their watch under their wrist. It just looks really uncomfortable.

    I don't think its weird at all, I currently choose not to wear that way but the history behind it was really in the military mainly Navy. A turned down crystal prevented it from hitting railings and other structures. Additionally, it is a natural way of viewing your watch just look when you lift up something or pick something up you can see the time without having to turn your wrist as opposed to an upward faced crystal carry. Additionally, if you are in any covert military situation it does not show the face unless you have a black wrap around the entire watch but then the sound of velcro might get you shot...

    Also - if you have your pistol out, and your watch on your support hand, you can easily read it with watch on the inside of the wrist. (handy if you have to make a report later - although if you have your gun out, you should be keeping your eyes on the threat that casued you to draw said weapon)

    I wear my watch on the outside of my wrist, as do everyone else i know, except my mother

    I do because its easier to tilt your wrist slightly to get a time to judge your pace while running than to completely rotate it

    I only put it that way if i'm at work and going to weld or grind ALOT, in that way it saves itself from burning up the glass.

    Like toilet paper rolls mounted "under," I have this habit of correcting it when it's facing down. It's just habit. I'm sure if were accustomed to the other way I'd correct it in favor of that.

    Do let me know when there's a thin watch that displays the time on the side, so I don't have to twist my arm either way.

    I wear my watch on my right hand with the face inward. It just looks neater with my G-shock, and avoids snags with my EDC pack straps when donning and doffing it.
    The only time I wear it the 'normal' way is when I'm about to climb over a wall/rock etc. to avoid scratching the face.

    I find any way to wear a watch awkward so it's all weird to me. Yeah I've seen people do it like that though.

    I find most of my watches are too chunky to wear on the inside and still be able to properly navigate the forums with my mouse.
