Wearing watches on the inside's how the special forces/FBI/CIA does it. Just imagine yourself holding a handgun, it's easier to check out the time with the watch facing inside compared to the "normal" outside.

I love the fact that he's wearing it with a suit, and testifying before congress. Kind of flies in the face of conventional wisdom on "dress" watches. +1

-1 for wearing it nurse-style.

No offense, but why exactly would one need to know what time is was while holding/aiming a gun?

So one can coordinate an arm take-down. You need to watch more CIA-type TV shows or movies. :)

Be careful of not getting profiled at LAX while going through security wearing your watch like that. Airport security can be pretty jumpy and have a weird-sense of imagination.

Oh man, i actually LIKE wearing watches under-wrist style...like Bruce Willis in those action movies!!!

Wearing under-wrist is supposed to be a "tough guy" thing i think...

glad i kept reading. almost missed the sarcasm. :)

i've met one SEAL and one former Delta Force. worked with FBI, DEA, USM.

not one ever wore a watch 'inside' the wrist, even on raids.

the only guy i know that does is an engineer.
