Looked great on him.

I've done it, with more than one watch, with a trench coat

I like that for him, but I would feel uncomfortable doing it.

Now if I could only figure out if unbuttoned his suit to show he had real functioning buttons or for some practical purpose.

Perfect, if your name is Gianni Agnelli. Idiotic, otherwise.

It seems to have been a dandified affectation that wasn't restricted in use to Sig. Agnelli. I saw "The Kid Stays In The Picture" last night and Robert Evans was shown sporting the look. I would recommend the film if just to take notice of the sartorial evolution in Mr. Evans wardrobe from the 1950's to 1970's.

Seconded. Anytime I see it, I think "That guy is copying Gianni Agnelli."

I would second "The Kid Stays in the Picture," great movie. Also contains one the best quotes I've ever heard, "There are three sides to every story. My side, your side, and the truth. And no one is lying. Memories shared serve each one differently."

More on-topic...I've seen the watch over barrel cuff before, it always looks too affected for my taste.

I've worn my wristwatch over my cuff on things like long sleeve golf shirts or anything with a ribbed cuff. Why would you think they're copying Gianni hell I don't even know who he is

Because it's a very distinctive look associated with a person many consider a style icon.

I've always thought it a dumb look, even on Agnelli. That said, he had a good reason to wear it that way.

What reason? Why couldn't he just get his shirts made with a larger cuff on his watch wrist?

Apparently his skin was sensitive to the wristwatch. Create your own stylistic tics. Featuring Agnelli trademarks is rather theatrical.
