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

    I had a friend in high school that wore his watch on his right arm. I asked him whether he was left-handed to which he replied no.

    "So how come you wear your watch on the right hand?"

    *Shrugs* "I just like it."

    Some people just like it.

    You wanted some stupid reasons?
    Ok, here is one:
    If you are single, it is better to wear an Automatic on your Right wrist.

    It took me a couple of seconds before I caught onto it. Gives a whole new sense to winding your watch!

    No,no.......................................

    The "symbolism" involved in wearing my watches on the right is very simple: I do not wear them on the left.
    Kind regards

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

    I wear my watch on the right wrist, and here's why:
    A summer some years back I was diving alot. Frankly, I was as more under water than above. Strapping on the instruments on the left, and also handling & operating them with the right hand, I strapped my diving watch on the right arm.
    I eventually got so used to wearing the watch on the right that it stayed there.

    And most importantly:
    I'm a lefty. Wearing the watch on the left arm will cause it to scratch and ding alot easier.

    FYI. I'm straight, married and not a member of some secret society.

    Yes it has a very subtle symbolism: it's the wrist where you're used to use it. :P

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 am into martial arts/boxing (right-handed), orthodox stance, wanted to get used to southpaw, and fundamentally sound with left hand punching. So over the years I only stood southpaw to throw lefts, .........so I would often times switch the watch to right side to get used to left hand dominance, err both. Logically I shouldn't wear a watch, but WIS are not logical.

    I am right eye dominant .....and also there is sound theory that says right I dominant people should ideally swing a baseball bat and golf club left (which I do better at..........and technically I would pickup time on a watch FASTER on my right wrist being right eye dominant
