Why does Panerai use metal tubes at lugs but not at buckle?

Does anyone put a 22mm tube in the strap at the buckle? I would think there is a lot of strain there?

Move your watch back and forth on your wrist and you can see how the strap rotates a bit.

The buckle stays in it's location as it's sort of locked in by the tang. It doesn't rotate at all

The tube is solid. The buckle has a tang, it has to be in the middle of the screw. If you put a tube over the screw in the buckle, you can't mount the tang and the buckle becomes 100% useless.

If I were the original poster, I'd be wishing I could delete this.
