Why Do People Wear Wrist-watches On Their Right Hands by DukeNija(m): 7:03pm On Sep 14, 2012
I wear mine on my right hand. I prefer it that way. I'm right-handed.
Most people wear theirs on the left. Why do you wear yours on your left. Any reason, or just the bandwagon at play?

I wear mostly on the left because I feel it's comfortable wearing it on that side of the hand besides comfortability considering the fact that i'm a right handed person and I grew up seeing my dad and the elderly people wearing theirs on the left too in most cases, whereas some other people would preferred wearing on right hand, it all boils down to individual likes and interest...

Maybe the reason that right handed people wear their watch on their left hand is cos
they are right handed - so they cannot use their right hand to put it on their right wrist, therefore they use their right hand to put it on their left wrist.

Yes, I think this could be the reason. Well, I also used to wear my watch on the left hand because that's comfortable for me.

You can't set or turn the knob wearing it on the right.

Am a lefty and I feel more comfortable wearing it on the right. Besides, my dad once told me that majority of world leaders wear it on the right.

I'm ambidextrous so I wear mine on either of my wrists depending on how I feel at that moment.

it is more conventional wearing it on the LEFT cus it is d best position wen viewing the time and the right hand becomes auxilliary in its operations such as setting the time or date and also for safety purposes since the right hand does most of the work then it is unsafe wearing a wrist watch on that hand
