    Okay, you're a paranoid, conspiracy-seeking idiot.

    You could ask CIA operatives if wearing a watch on their right wrist denotes something, like maybe they've personally overthrown a dictator or single-handedly completed an arms for hostage negotiation. They might have to kill you if they told you the truth though.

    Anyway, how could you tell it was the truth?

    Maybe they have a code.

    Maybe they're giving you disinformation.

    Or maybe they think anyone who wears their watch on the right wrist are dissenters and separatists.

    Do you wear your watch on your right wrist? Maybe they're watching you right now!!!

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
    Sorry, OT... but who on earth trains for boxing/MA with a watch on?! What instructor even allows that? This is both dangerous and not good for the watch.

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'm left handed and only wear watches on my left hand. There's no secret message or hidden code. It's just what works...

    Wow, very perceptive. Give it up guys, he's on to us. Yes, there is a secret society. And no, you haven't been invited.

    Being ambidextrous I chose to wear the watch on my right arm to do different than most people do... some kind of rebellion against society, so your interpretation isnt all that bad. Not that I am part of a secret organization, and if I were... well it wouldn't be that secret if I told you

    When I was a kid nobody told me where I should wear it.....so I just did....on my right. I could never change now but people think I am left handed and I am not. Nasty tan line now so there is another reason not to switch.

    I`m glad everyone has fun with this thread.

    I`m just wondering how true is the "gay thing". Not that I wear my watches on my right wrist, but in case I start I don`t want to give the wrong message(not that I have anything against gays, but I`m not one).

    Edit: I started thinking about this, since I`ve been mistaken for being on drugs while I was just slightly drunk at a disco a couple of times. But I guess that`s a different story

    I wear my watch on my right wrist because I am left-handed.

    Now I understand why I always have winsome young men asking me to redecorate their living rooms when I visit the local fern bar for a vodka and Fresca on the rocks.
