I received this piece for Christmas from my boyfriend and was very excited to have a bracelet and watch in one. It is very pretty, but I too have issues with it sticking up and not fitting flush on the arm. I have found that putting dangle charms or narrow spacers on either side of it helps somewhat. It is also a little heavy, so you have to distribute weight evenly on both sides of it to keep it from turning over. I hardly ever take it off, even shower in it and have had no issues with water resistance. Altogether it is a nice piece, just takes a little getting used to. It's worth it... I get complimented on it daily!
