I stopped wearing a watch because they get beat up too much in my line of work. They are also dangerous to wear around moving machinery. I use my cell instead to tell the time.

I have it on my left, as I'm right handed and my left hand is typically more free to move. I think that's the norm.

I also do not see the point in a watch. Its just another thing to loose. And certain metals can cause allergies.

A cellphone works fine.

when I used to wear watches, I always wore them on my left, but only because I had some ocd and left seemed lucky to me, lol. I used to collect watches (nice watches, not casio), but havent been able to wear watches for a few years now because of nerve problems in my wrists

When I carry a watch, it's in my right side watch pocket (more pants need to have them!). I have a 1904 Hamilton that my dad gave me. Seems like the kind of watch our WP member Ackman would wear. :D

I don't wear a wrist watch.

That's the one! yeah putting it on and the buttons are best with right hand.

I still wear one even though it hurts my skin and I have a cellphone for the time. Maybe it's also to cover up a bad watch-tan, which could have been prevented if...

Left, because I always stick my right hand into water and other random places. Getting my watch soaked or broken is the last thing I would want.
