I prefer to install the strap with the buckle-hoop on top and looping over my wrist the the clasp at the bottom of the watch (this is my VALOR Standard Model 11).
Once everything is in place, I test the fit. And with that ensured, I've also trimmed my strap here down to personal fit.
To put on the watch, I brace the watch against a solid surface or myself and simply latch the clasp into the buckle.
