I`ve always wondered if there was any hidden meaning to wearing your watch on your right? I know that some people are left-handed and thus are more liable of doing it. But for some person who is right-handed it looks a bit out of the ordinary. A bit like a "rebellion against society" or a secret organization`s code. I know that most people would say they wear their watches the way they feel better. But it would be nice to hear the more bizarre opinions on this topic.

Feel free to call me a paranoid, conspiracy-seeking idiot. :-!

Sorry, the old "Left is right and right is wrong" dogma does not apply to watches :-!

Wear on whichever watch you feel is more comfortable without fear of making any unwanted social statements :-d

A lot of people wear the watch on their weaker arm to keep it out of the way. The simplest answer is always the best one.

I notice that more often than not if someone wears a watch on the right hand it tends to be a big watch, often expensive. However, I never asked if they were right or left handed and why they would wear it on the right. If they are left handed it makes perfect sense to wear especially a big watch on the passive hand so it stays out of the way.

Otherwise wearing a watch on the right is a sure fire way to get it noticed because that's the usually more exposed wrist and the one you shake hands with.

Plenty of things said about guys that wear their watch on the right wrist but some are being polite.

gay ... not that there is anything wrong with that.

Well, that's all that really matters isn't it... unless you're a gay.

I hear watch crown digging problems said and well, if you can't handle a watch crown.:rodekaart

I heard that for a single ear ring on the right lobe but never for watches. Must be a deduction of sorts. Refraining strictly from pulling jokes on digging of watch crown. ;)

+1 I tried wearing a watch on the other wrist once I didn't even make it out of the house before knocking it a couple of times. :-d

I had a friend in high school that wore his watch on his right arm. I asked him whether he was left-handed to which he replied no.

"So how come you wear your watch on the right hand?"

*Shrugs* "I just like it."

Some people just like it. :-d

You wanted some stupid reasons?
Ok, here is one:
If you are single, it is better to wear an Automatic on your Right wrist.

I wear my watch on the right wrist, and here's why:
A summer some years back I was diving alot. Frankly, I was as more under water than above.;-) Strapping on the instruments on the left, and also handling & operating them with the right hand, I strapped my diving watch on the right arm.
I eventually got so used to wearing the watch on the right that it stayed there.

And most importantly:
I'm a lefty. Wearing the watch on the left arm will cause it to scratch and ding alot easier.

FYI. I'm straight, married and not a member of some secret society.:-d

I am into martial arts/boxing (right-handed), orthodox stance, wanted to get used to southpaw, and fundamentally sound with left hand punching. So over the years I only stood southpaw to throw lefts, .........so I would often times switch the watch to right side to get used to left hand dominance, err both. Logically I shouldn't wear a watch, but WIS are not logical. b-)

I am right eye dominant .....and also there is sound theory that says right I dominant people should ideally swing a baseball bat and golf club left (which I do better at..........and technically I would pickup time on a watch FASTER on my right wrist being right eye dominant
