I tend to sleep on my right side with my watch hand up by my face. When I'm half asleep it's easier to glance at my wrist than it is to crane my neck to get a look at the clock. When my ex GF would stay over, I'd take my watch off so as not to snag her with it. ;-)
I like having a watch on my wrist at night, like the rest of the folks who don't want to have to become too alert (or in John Wilson's case, too aroused) just to tell the time. Agree with Francois about the little vermin and dust flecks. So, I rest my daily watch to regulate its timekeeping and strap on a beater with plenty of lume. Found that even the effort to light up the g-shock would make me more awake, so I'd say a beater with plenty of lume is the ideal sleeping partner, horologically speaking.
