Are There Watch-Wearing Style Rules?


There really isn't an answer to this because as is the case with all things, personal style and what you want to communicate coincides with how you dress and carry yourself. We shared an Esquire article back in 2008 that discussed what they felt wearing your watch in certain ways said about you. It was just one take on the matter, of course. When it comes down to it, you will look your best when you wear what you like, comfortably.

Having said that, we have some rules that we feel most watch lovers tend to abide by. First of all, sizing your watch is important. It doesn't need to but ultra tight and fitted if you like a slightly loose fit, but don't just take it out of the box and strap it on. The watch shouldn't fall off your wrist (or look like it is about to). Also, while some people seem to prefer it, it is sort of a 'no no' to wear your watch on the underside of your wrist. It not only defeats the purpose of allowing people to see it, but in a lot of instances it can make it easier to scratch up your watch. Where you wear your watch on your wrist (high or low) is really up to you.
