The clasp opens naturally; the clasp sits in the centre of your inner wrist; and it significantly reduces the tendency of the watch head to migrate northwards on your wrist.

It’s all to do with with the relative sizes and movement/positioning of the two bones in your wrist. They are not identical and bracelets should not be sized to be same either side if you want them to sit properly. I posted a drawing of this a few years ago, but I’m feeling too lazy to find it and repost it here.

Of course everyone is different, so this simply applies to the vast majority of people.
See i find that really uncomfortable as the bulky part then digs into my wrist. I prefer the clasp offset to the other side of the wrist. Mesh bracelets are way more comfortable though.
