Being left hand dominant?

I wear it on my right wrist because I'm left handed. When I was in middle school, I wore a Fossil on my left hand and the bracelet's paint was worn off because of my wrist rubbing against paper, etc. while I would write. Once I ruined the finish on that bracelet, I decided I would start wearing it on the right wrist. Never went back.

On the other hand (no pun intended), I'm not sure what other purposes wearing a watch on your right wrist would serve.

I've always worn my watch on my right wrist. When I was a kid I threw with my left arm and it felt weird to have a watch on it. I also found it easier to do the strap up with my left hand.

i think it was supposed to be the opposite of your favored hand so that the favored had can do more freely and you could still see time and watch gets less abuse (dare i say while you write, and wipe your "arse", if you wanna throw a ball, hammer, think about it...)...LOL

Yes, they are either a member of a secret society or society with secrets.

I asked one of my friends why he wears watches on his right hand and he said he never really uses the watch, he just wears it on that wrist to signal to other gay men that he is also gay. He also told me that there are other 'fashion accessories' (pains me to hear watches being called that but I digress) that accomplish the same thing.

It's a secret sign that you're part of the ILLUMINATI? :-d

Well if I wore it on my right hand, winding it would be a little annoying since my left hand would be blocking the view of the watch face.

That and wearing a watch on the same hand you wipe your ass with is just wrong. Either switch the wiping hand or wearing hand.

So now that we have the whole left/right thing figured out what about the dial inside/outside the wrist? What does that mean? What if you're right handed, wear your watch on the right wrist, with the dial on the inside of the wrist? My head is starting to hurt, lol.

I started wearing my watch on my right hand in college, 25 years ago. I injured my left wrist so, had to for a while. I realized it was more comfortable and that my right wrist was bigger than my left (I'm right handed) and it fit better. Never went back after my injury healed. You know what they say, "once you go right your done for the night".

Now, there are other reasons that I am not at liberty to disclose, as I have been sworn to secrecy. The lives of innocent women and children depend on my discretion in this matter. If I told you, you would be visited in the middle of the night by a large bunny rabbit bearing gifts and squirrel larva. And trust me, you don't want that.

So in conclusion, please keep wearing your watch on your left hand. Those of us who carry the "burden of the right wrist" are doing so in order to save society from chaos and mayhem. When you see us, just say "thank you" and buy us a beer.

I've always worn my watch on the left, I think I wanted to fit in (joke) and almost everyone I had noticed when I got my first wore on the left. Now in order to be different I still wear left but I mod them.........

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. :-!
Left wrist sprain or a bad sunburn will do it

I have been wearing a watch on my right hand ever since my father gave me a swatch. The strap was a tang buckle and I could only buckle the strap easily using my left hand.

20 something years later, I still wear my watch on my right hand.
