    Do any right-handed people wear their watch on their right hand?

    Just curious what hand you wear your watch on. Any right handers wear a watch on their right hand?

    My grandfather did this. I'm not sure why and I never thought to ask before he passed. Now I'm wishing I did though. Mine however, stays on the left.

    I don't. Besides being impractical it would result in my watches looking like crap due to the higher likelihood of scratches and dents.

    I do. My left wrist is deformed from a motorcycle wreck and my watches ride much better on the other one.

    I used to back in high school. No reason in particular other than I didn't know any better. When I switched to the left it was a little weird, but I don't have to take my watch off to write anymore.

    I did when I played guitar in a band. But I wore a loose bracelet on my left wrist because it felt weird not having anything there. After I left the band and stopped gigging all the time, I returned to normal. In so many ways.

    I'm Right handed. I wear watch on the left wrist.
    My advice- buy a watch that pleases you. Don't let anyone judge or tell you what to wear. Good cheap and expensive watches are no different between them. Both still can tell the time.

    Yes, I'm right handed and have always worn my watches on my right wrist. I've never had an issue with watches getting knocked around because of this. I tried it on my left recently and it just felt wrong!!

    Watches are for wearing, sooner or later you're going to ding it...now that really hurts!
