    From a Redditor:

    In John Wick, before the action starts, John wears his wristwatch normally. But when he goes into the “battle mode,” he wears them face inside the wrist, which is the way soldiers usually do it. (So that they could see the time while holding a rifle and to avoid reflections of the glass).
