    Good pic, JP. Bet it feels a little strange like that, doesn't it? I've been wearing my watch under my wrist since about 1959 or 60. Picked up the habit from WW2 vets that were still serving in the military at the time. I thought it was cool. Later on, as an adult, I found out that wearing a watch under the wrist was one of the things that really pissed off George Carlin. I thought that was even cooler.

        Great pic, JP. George, I agree that would feel weird and it would take me a long time to get used to wearing them that way.

                  Actually. Kurt. that's not a problem. I tend to put my wrist down on my desk on the side, not flat. I suspect most people do.

                    Thanks George. I had an uncle from York Pa. who had been a watchmaker for Hamilton in the
                    late 40's and early 50's. He wore his watch underneath and the crystal was so scratched you
                    could hardly see through it.

                    It was a yellow gold Hamilton Brooke.

                      I do it occasionally for a variety of different reasons: 1. Social gatherings. If you're sitting with your hands in your lap, a simple glance down will show you the time. You needn't raise and turn your wrist lest you appear bored. 2. Protect the watch against banging into things. 3. Driving. Left hand at 10:00. A quick glance at the wrist without taking your hand off the wheel.
