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

    I never wore a watch in my adulthood until I was in my late 20's. i have a tattoo on my left wrist and was worried it would get worn away with a watch and got used to it being on my right. As years went on I got married and didn't like the ring and watch on the same hand, felt like too much bling, so it stayed right. I am a chef and my hands take a lot of abuse as do my watches so I finally decided to switch it back to my left to help preserve the exterior of the watch as well as the machine, heavy whisking, etc with my dominant. it's been 2 days so far and i think i can comfortable with the transition, sort of a weird feeling this transition, 12-14 years wearing a watch on my right now on the left.

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

    The interesting thing about Symbology is that it is a hidden in plain sight langauge, both verbal & visual. It is the hardest of all languages to learn because of the vast curriculum involved & just like any other langauge, if you have never learned how to read write or speak it, then you will have no understanding of it & therefore it will have no meaning to you.
    One symbol can have a meaning but when combined with another symbol it can take on an expanded meaning. Just like a single word has a simple meaning & then when it is combined with another word or used in a sentence, the meaning becomes more complex.

    Not sure about all that... and is "symbology" a real thing? I thought it was semiotics. In any case, you seem to be more interested in advertising than anything!

    Lol, is symbology a real thing? Like I said, if you don't know how to speak a language you can't understand it. So understandably you are not sure. Semiotics (observance of signs) is only a small part of it. I posted pics with Symbols & you took it as an advertisement but then that's where you are at. I don't need to advertise, it's not something for everybody.

    I wear mine on my right wrist and always have. There's no reason behind it, but I do get a few comments on it when someone notices lol.

    Symbols & watches. If there is no meaning, then what's the point.

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

    My grandfather told me a long time ago that according to the Book of Etiquette, it was customary for a man to wear his watch on the left and a woman to wear her watch on the right. I still don't understand who came up with those rules or why, but I tend to wear mine on the right.

    Semantics... if you know what he means, then its a real thing.

    FYI that's not advertising. You clearly must have missed the Skull & Cross Bones symbol in the watch. Also a secret society to which George Bush and several other important people belonged to. H2 shows this stuff a lot.

    Yes, the Memento Mori has been used by many Secret Societies. The Skull alone as well as with the Crossbones is a symbol that has been prevalent throughout history, in all cultures & religions & has the same Illuminated & Spiritual meaning in general. Skulls traditionally represent death in Tibet as well but Buddhists incorporated Tibetan skull images into malas to represent the impermanence of life and the limits of human knowledge. Skull-shaped mala beads help chanters reflect upon the inevitability of death and the necessity of embracing lives filled with compassion.
    The Milsub has a Memento Mori / Skull & Crossbones printed next to the 3:00position. The Skull & Xbones is a symbol of Death which is inevitable for the Mortal Coil & all Life In this Dualistic Material Realm & so the Skull & Xbones is a Symbol connected closely with Time itself. I printed it Black to match the dial background in Stealth mode so it would be Hidden in Plain Sight & hard to see but always there. Symbolic of the Symbol of Death itself, which Looms over us & Lurks in the Shadows of Time & Appears at the End of Everyone's Time & Life, when our Consciousness leaves the Mortal Coil for the Unmeasurable Scale of Eternity. For Death is only Final for the Living (ones left behind still encased in their Mortal Coils). Time is only a Measurement Man has created & which we constantly keep track of. No one knows when their time in this realm will end & face the doorway of Physical Death but it comes for all of us. After all, that's what a Watch is for,.. to Track what we Deem as Precious Time. Although our present society predominantly associates skulls with death, some ancient societies believed to have had the opposite association, where objects like crystal skulls represent "life": the honoring of humanity in the flesh and the embodiment of consciousness. Depending at which angle you view the watch, light will reflect off of the Skull giving contrast & therefore Revealing itself or Disappearing from sight. The pics I've posted show the Skull clearly but when you hold the watch in your hand you can not see it unless you purposely look for it. At arms length it vanishes,... as we all shall eventually vanish from this Beautiful Illusion we call Life. But Life is not the Mortal Coil, for it is only the Host which is Manifested & Animated by Consciousness to Traverse the Material Realm. For Consciousness, is Life itself, the flame that can never be extinguished & is the Egg that came before the Chicken. Why I placed it at 3:00 connects it to something else & expanding the meaning but I will not take that meaning further here in the open forum.
