In some cultures people tend to wear a watch or ring on the right hand/wrist. I have met a few Muslims who tend to do this especially in the Gulf as the right hand is used for greeting, eating etc you walk into a house with your right foot and leave with your left. I have noticed on quite a few Arab programmes people wear their watch on the right wrist.

That of course is not everyone far from it, I have also met folk who just wear it on the left for the same reason most of us do, the right hand is the dominant hand so wearing a watch on it would be more likely to get in the way or get damaged.

Thats the only symbolism I can think of, possibly a religious one. Other than that perhaps left handed?
No, it has nothing to do with religion. It's personal preference. I am from the Gulf and I live here. I wear rings on both my left and right hand and I wear my watch on my left wrist. I have yet to meet a person who wears their watch on their right hand. And if they do, it's because he/she is a lefty. It has nothing to do with religion. What makes you even think that? Also, entering a house with the right foot and leaving with the left? Lol. What??
