The only use I can think of for this sort of slip-on-slip-off strap, is a for kid who hasn't learned how to use a buckle? Or perhaps a tactical tool, allowing one to dispose of the watch immediately in the case of imminent capture by the enemy (so they won't know you're a Cub Scout.)

chemical plants prefer these against more conventional designs, because if something snags it and starts pulling, the watch comes off, whereas with a regular strap you get pulled into the vat, muncher, etc. Or so I have been told on another forum.
