On which wrist do you wear your watch, if at all? I wear mine on my left wrist.

My phone serves as my "watch."

I believe I might have this "sensory thing" which really makes it a hassle to wear things on my body.

I don't wear anything at all---except clothes.

I'm right handed, so of course the watch (Garmin Vivoactive 3) is on my left.

But I occasionally have my Seiko kinetic on my right wrist to charge it up.

I'm right handed and used to wear my watch on my right wrist until I was fifteen.

I can't abide the feeling of wearing a watch so I've always taken the strap off and kept them in a pocket.

I wear my watch (currently a 1st generation Apple Watch) on my left wrist. Any bracelets go on my right.0

I've always worn my watch on my right wrist. Apparently this is odd as I am right-handed and right-handed people usually wear it on the left wrist. That seems odd to me.

I used to be the same, as stated above. It took a concerted effort of will to swap wrists, but now, I can't conceive of anything else. I just don't understand those who rely on their smartphones for the time; it's inconvenient and anti social. I'd quite like a traditional pocket watch though - on a gold chain attached to my waistcoat :D

Same here re the phone thing. I feel naked without my watch, and can't imagine how I would ever make it anywhere on time without it. It also took me a long time to learn how to wear it on my left wrist - for some reason I just didn't have the coordination to fasten it with my right hand. I'll occasionally switch wrists, but it almost always still lands on the right one.

A traditional pocket watch would be cool :) I'd probably lose it though, even with the chain :D

Left of course, because I'm a righty. I have an analog watch, had a few digital ones but I like the classy look and actual hands/ticking.

My left wrist. I currently rotate between two Citizen watches and an inexpensive digital watch.

Left. Only worn if there's some compelling reason to wear one, which is rarely.

I wear my watch on my right wrist, because I'm left-handed. I've done so since I first started wearing watches.
