    1. People who don’t want to spill their beer to check the time.

    2. Or people who need to note the current time while holding a clipboard (nurses, industrial equipment operators)

      Of course, being left-handed is NOT acceptable, but wearing the watch to be visible while writing just makes sense for some professions.

    3. Who the fuck buys watches? Everybody has a cell phone. If you want a bracelet, buy one. It’s dumb.

    5. I used to wear my watches like this when I was in the Army.
      Two reason:
      Being on a tank crew, I’m always hitting my arms, legs head on different parts of the tank. Especially when you’re getting shot at, running a 3 man crew instead of a 4 man crew, and you need to load and fire your own rounds.
      That being said, I always broke the face of my watch. So many times, I just started wearing it like this.
      Second reason?
      While conducting dismounted patrols, Iraqi kids would always swarm us asking for free shit. Can’t so I don’t blame them, but it still got irritating. Especially when the insurgents started to attack us, by sending in children first.
      Anyways, I would keep my watch face turned in so the kids didn’t see I had a watch, meaning they would leave me alone and not ask for it.

      • This is, partially, why I wear mine like this. The only difference being that, while on night ops, you always try to limit anything that might flash in the light, or jingle when moving. By having your watch facing inward, it’s less likely to shine back on anything.

      • I had noticed that the “upside-down watch” method tends to be most common in the military. Never knew the reasons for it, though. Makes sense.

    7. Fun fact: looking at your watch can teach you a fundamental movement in judo.

    8. I wear my dive watch backwards on my left hand. It makes it easy to track time and look at a pressure gauge at the same time.
