    I grew up hearing from my family that you wear the watch on your non writing hand so you can hold a pen while looking at your watch in case you need to write the time and date.

    I asked one of my friends why he wears watches on his right hand and he said he never really uses the watch, he just wears it on that wrist to signal to other gay men that he is also gay. He also told me that there are other 'fashion accessories' (pains me to hear watches being called that but I digress) that accomplish the same thing.

    Well if I wore it on my right hand, winding it would be a little annoying since my left hand would be blocking the view of the watch face.

    That and wearing a watch on the same hand you wipe your ass with is just wrong. Either switch the wiping hand or wearing hand.

    So now that we have the whole left/right thing figured out what about the dial inside/outside the wrist? What does that mean? What if you're right handed, wear your watch on the right wrist, with the dial on the inside of the wrist? My head is starting to hurt, lol.

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

    I started wearing my watch on my right hand in college, 25 years ago. I injured my left wrist so, had to for a while. I realized it was more comfortable and that my right wrist was bigger than my left (I'm right handed) and it fit better. Never went back after my injury healed. You know what they say, "once you go right your done for the night".

    Now, there are other reasons that I am not at liberty to disclose, as I have been sworn to secrecy. The lives of innocent women and children depend on my discretion in this matter. If I told you, you would be visited in the middle of the night by a large bunny rabbit bearing gifts and squirrel larva. And trust me, you don't want that.

    So in conclusion, please keep wearing your watch on your left hand. Those of us who carry the "burden of the right wrist" are doing so in order to save society from chaos and mayhem. When you see us, just say "thank you" and buy us a beer.

    I've always worn my watch on the left, I think I wanted to fit in (joke) and almost everyone I had noticed when I got my first wore on the left. Now in order to be different I still wear left but I mod them.........

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.

    Feel free to call me a paranoid, conspiracy-seeking idiot.

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

    I have been wearing a watch on my right hand ever since my father gave me a swatch. The strap was a tang buckle and I could only buckle the strap easily using my left hand.

    20 something years later, I still wear my watch on my right hand.
