Me I wear my watch on my left wrist. They said, if you are a right-handed, you normally wear your watch on your left wrist, because that is the hand you lesser used. It helps to protect your watch from damage. I agree with that because I am right-handed. How about you, where do you where your watch on, left or wright wrist?

I wear my watch on my left wrist, I think that is what most people will do. The reason is just what you point out, it will be easier for us to put on our watch. And if I wear my watch on my right wrist, I will feel quite uncomfortable when I putting it on and when I have to know the time, really weird.

I have always preferred my left hand for bracelets or watches. I am right handed and dont like things getting caugt while trying to use my hand. So if its on my left wrist it wont bother me. Some people prefer it on their writing hand though.

Hi there! I also wear my wrist watch on my left wrist. I just cannot tie the same on my right wrist and can work with it. I am a right handed person, therefore, wrist watch on my left wrist works fine with me.

I usually wear my watch on my left wrist so that I will more comfortable and at ease especially when I am writing. Yep, I am a right-handed... but I think it depends on the design of the watch. It it has a slim or light latch and the buckle is not bulky, then I don't mind wearing it on my right wrist like my bracelet. However, I guess I am so used to wearing it on my left because whenever I need to check the time, I automatically will look at my left wrist even though at that time I don't wear any hehe...

I am right-handed and I wear my watch on my right wrist as well. I have been like that since I was in college and that was a long time ago. Sometimes, I would switch my watch to my left wrist not because to protect my watch but because it gets in the way when I am writing something, me being my right hand the more dominant hand.

I see. I think it also depends on where we used to wear in on. And we should wear on where we are comfortable. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

I wear my watch on my left hand cos I am right-handed. If I wear my watch on my right hand, then it will get in the way when I write or typing at the keyboard. Cheers =))

Yes, our hand is more relax if there's no watch on it. So since we are right-handed, we better put our watch on our left wrist. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

I wear my watch on my left wrist as I am a right hander, just like you. It's not to protect the watch from damage, it's just to get it out of my way. I dont like it being in the way when I am writing or doing anything for that matter.

Yes, it is more comfortable if it's not on our more preferred to use hand. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

I am right handed and used to wear it left. With 16 my GF (right handed, wearing right) told me to put it right too. Somehow I liked the idea. I switched to the right and felt very strange. She told me to keep it a while that i did. I got more and more used it. After like 3 weeks I started to like it. I actually start to find it more comfortable then left. Years have passed, my GF became my wife. We still wear it both right and funny our kids copied us. Guess we are exotic.

I am right-handed, and I wear my watch on the left wrist. I do agree with your point that mornally right handed people wear the watch on the left wrist because that is the hand that we used less.

Yes, that's what we can normally see, a right handed person wearing his/her watch on his/her left wrist. Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

Me too. I wear it on my left wrist since I am right handed. However, if I don't feel like writing or doing anything that involves my right hand that much... I sometimes wear it on my right wrist for a change.

Yup, me too, I also tried to wear a watch on my right wrist, to be different. But since I used to be comfortable wearing it on my left, I'm now wearing watch on my left wrist again. Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

From bracelets to watches, I wear all of them on my left wrist because I am left-handed. I am not comfortable putting anything on my right wrist thus even if I wear both the bracelet and watch its on the same wrist. I have not heard of that concept where a left-handed puts the watch on the opposite wrist.

Yes, there's no standard on which wrist we should wear our watch or bracelet. The issue is more on where are you comfortable with. But I just thought of something that might cause you some trouble, just in case you are drinking a hot chocolate or coffee using your left hand, when someone ask you what time is it, you should be careful coz if you rush on looking at your time, you will end up spilling your coffee. Lol! I'm just kidding. Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

I wear my watch in my left wrist, but I'm also a left-handed. I guess it doesn't matter where do you wear a watch. For me I wear my watch at my left wrist because it's more comfortable for me.

There is no standard on where should we wear our watch on, it can be on right or left wrist. Since you are comfortable wearing your watch on your left wrist, there's no problem with that. And it's good to know. Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

hi mark! well, i'm also right-handed so i usually place my watch my left. i find it more comfortable. i tried placing it in my right hand before but it was really annoying and uncomfortable. on my right, i wear my bracelet and on my left i wear my watch. i don't like wearing a watch very often though. but it's needed at work so i have no choice.
