If I'm just in a sport coat and slacks, I will were a bracelet. My Rolex Air King no date see's a lot of wrist action in this way.
When I see a man in a suit with a bracelet, the first thing's that come to mind is that he:
Doesn't have another watch or strap
Is on a trip and this is just more practical
Is just trying to show off that his watch cost more then a lot of folk's first car
Or most common, he just thinks it's a watch and just doesn't care
X1000, nailed it. To me it is like seeing a Ferrari in a snow storm. It tells me that he blew all his money on what he thinks is something classy and he does not have a proper dress watch (or SUV).
The other option is that he does not know the difference and he is probably wearing rubber-soled shoes. James Bond only did it for corporate sponsorship.
