To clarify, I was wondering how you wear your Pam's. So you wear it tight or a little loose so there is some side to side play on the strap and watch?

Just curious.

My thoughts is tight keeps the watch 'safer' from accidental knocks but then it can get 'hot and sweaty' this way.

This is something I've wondered about as well. With my Rolexes on metal bracelets, I prefer them slightly looser where the case falls all the way to the bottom of my wrist, with the crown encroaching on the back of my hand. With my PAM, I prefer to strap it on tighter just above my wrist so that I have full range of motion when I bend my wrist and not make contact with the crown guard. Unfortunately, not all straps are made the same and I end up with some straps fitting tighter/looser than others due to hole placement. Thankfully, there is no wrong way to wear a PAM!

I reckon the sweatier a strap, the shorter its life.
