    Had another question to add. I’m a lefty and wear my watch on the right. Was curious if any fellow lefty’s who wear their watches the same way, who fold their arms over their arm where they wear their watchand does it bother them that the watch is hidden?

    Re: Any symbolism involved in wearing a watch on the right hand?

    I'm a lefty. In university and school in general, I wore my watch on my right hand so it was easier to see when writing, ie during exams etc, but during that era I wore it on right all the time, often with the face on the inside of my arm.

    These days, (and a long time since school) I find that if I were to do that, because I use my right hand for computer mouse, I don't like having my watch on that hand anymore. It interferes with my wrist, ergonomics, and I suppose could scratch the watch bracelet due to all the movement.

    Personally I don't find crowns that convenient to work with while wearing the watch, so I just take it off if I need to do any big setting adjustments.

    Either way, lefty wearing on my left.

    It's up to you!!!
    I travel to South-America on a regular basis and if I'm driving a car, I prefer to wear my watch in my right hand so I can avoid any car-window breaking to snatch the watch or so.
    When I come back to the USA I put it on my left wrist (As usual) and I'm good to go!!!

    I'm also a lefty who wears his watch on the right, but I'm not sure I get the question. You're saying that when you cross your arms, it's left over top of right, so your watch on your right wrist is covered? I think (yes, I just sat here crossing my arms to see what felt more natural) that I cross my right arm over my left.

    Isn't this a question about how you cross your arms rather than which wrist you wear your watch on? Wouldn't it apply equally to left wristers?

    Right handed. Worn my watch on my right wrist since about middle school. Can't remember if I did it to be contrarian and being an iconoclast or just for comfort, but it's now become a habit and part of who I am.

    I switch it up when I feel like it. Take earlier this week for instance, I had some kind of poison ivy or something get under my watch and irritate my left wrist. A quick washing and onto the right wrist it went.

    For me it's because I'm left handed.....

I know that most people would say they wear their watches the way they feel better. But it would be nice to hear the more bizarre opinions on this topic.

    I’ve been told since childhood that men wear watches on the left wrist and women on the right, so I’ve always worn my watches on the left wrist. That said, I’m a lefty, but as I’ve always hated needing special products for lefties, I’ve trained myself to do everything better with my right hand, so I don’t bang my watch. The only traces of left handedness on me are writing with my left hand and that rings and watches just feel better on my left hand/wrist.
