    Smile Poll: Which hand do you wear your watch on, and which hand do you write with?

    So, knowing that I'm probably in the minority, I wondered if there were any other "unique" people like me.

    I'm a right-handed person, but also wear my watch on the right side.

    I know, I know...kinda weird. It's an inherited trait (my father was the same way).

    Re: Poll: Which hand do you wear your watch on, and which hand do you write with?

    I voted right-right, but it doesn't quite fit for me anymore. Lately I've started wearing one watch on each wrist, but I write with my right hand.
    Before I got used to wearing multiple watches, I always wore right-right. It just felt more natural to me.

    Right handed.
    When I am on my desktop PC (with right handed mouse) I wear my watch on my left hand. If I am out/about I switch watch hands back and forth.

    I didn't even think about multiple watch wearers. Interesting.

    Re: Poll: Which hand do you wear your watch on, and which hand do you write with?

    I'm left handed and wear my watch on my right hand. As a kid I tried wearing watches on my left hand but it got too cumbersome and uncomfortable dragging the buckle/clasp across the paper when I wrote. Also I tended to bang the watch into things more when it was on my left hand (probably just my perception, don't know).

    I grew up on the tail end of the movement where grade school teachers would try and force lefties to write right-handed. It didn't "take" with me and I ended up staying a southpaw.
