When I bought it, I wasnt sure what purpose that funny insert had.

Assumed it had to do with the strap. Today it arrived and I could test it. I think it must be designed for a ladies watch. Test run it is.

Maybe:

Possibly:

Option, but not that type of watch:

What do you think?

I think you're right. And perhaps specifically narrow ladies' watches. The Octagon looks too wide and the Orne just barely fits without going over the edge.
