Usually people wear the watch on the right because it is more comfortable. However I had a closer look as I am a rightie too. So I sometimes ask other “Why you wear it right?”
Some people, mainly kids put it on the right to be different.
Also: They copy others. If both parents wear it right, the kids usually copy them or the parents maybe even tell them to wear it right.
And if in a group more people have it right, it might actually lead to such a “conspiracy symbol”
Not wearing a watch is like not wearing any pants...
Where is the Indian's right hand?
Talking about the clasp sitting so badly on the wrist's inside that it cuts off the artery (blood pipe). Bad circulation in hand, bad for golf. At least that's what I think it means.
Sometimes when you wear the watch on the other hand the geometry of the clasp/hand relation changes and it doesn't pose a problem anymore. He could also just switch the bracelet around for the same effect but he probably never thought of that.
The most likely reason is that it bothers him somehow when playing.
I've started to wear my Seiko 007 on my right wrist because the lack of any micro adjust in the bracelet means it fits better on this wrist; I was busted today by my other half (woman) in the middle of grocery shopping wearing a 70's Marvin dress watch on my left hand and the Seiko on the right at the same time. Wear two watches, confuse the haters.
Not that I know of. It may be a cultural thing. I know the vast majority of people I see wearing watches on the right are from the "Old World" (Europe, Asia). And more women than men.
