    Disparity in Wrist Sizes.

    My right wrist (on which I normally wear my watches) is 6.25" in circumference, however I am flatwristed and it is 2.25" wide meaning I can wear pretty large watches comfortably.

    My left wrist is larger being 6.50" in circumference and I occasionally wear my watches on this wrist being pretty ambidextrous.

    Is disparity in size between right and left wrists commonplace and if so which is normally the larger?

    I'm right-handed. My right-hand wrist is definitely larger than my left-hand wrist. I can wear a Frogman on my right-hand wrist, and it looks just fine. I look like an idiot with a Frogman on my left-hand wrist.

    right handed and left is smaller.
    i think its common for one wrist is larger than the other.
    i fully utilize my right because it got more strength and coordination.
    try using the chopsticks on ur left if ure right handed, foods flying everywhere.
    using my left hand is like first time Bambi started walking.

    I think both of mine are roughly the same size.
    But I'm cool like that.

    Left handed, right is bigger by 1/4". Wear G's on the left wrist.

    My right hand too is about 1/2" larger than the left - L=8.5" R=9.0" - Frogman looks good on either wrist, imo and it just fits me, unlike the majority of watches which either barely fasten, or are just too small, full stop

    I chime in to say that there is also the fact that for some people wrists swollen during hot or humid seasons, so wrist size is not a constant.

    No way to measure, other than swapping watch to other wrist. Mine appear to be very close. Left handed, wear on right. Pretty ambidextrous when working on things. In the gym, have not noticed one significantly stronger than the other.
