The other day my female teacher asked me friendly: "What time is it? You tend to have a watch, don't you? May I see your watch?"
I never talk, as she knows very well, so I showed her my watch that I had on my right wrist.
My teacher said: "You have your watch round your right wrist. That is unusual. Does that feel better for you than having it on your left one?"
I shrugged. I hadn't thought about that before.

So, which wrist do you have your watch round?

I have it on right. When I want to see the time, I always look at the right wrist, so why to wear on left?
I know one girl, who wears watch on right too.
Now I don't wear watch if I don't have to, because I have cellphone. I don't like any jewellery.

Watches are old-fashioned, but if I had one, it would be on my right wrist because I am right handed.

I use my cellphone though, for the time.

I'm right handed and the watch is always on the left wrist. No real reason why, that's just what feels right to me.

No watch (cannot stand the feeling of it hanging on my wrist).

Cellphone for time.

If I did wear one, it would be on my left wrist, though.

I have no watch. When I had a watch, I wore it on my right wrist. I don't like wearing watches much, and I'm rarely far enough from my internet gridlink to need one. ^^

Left wrist.
I wear my watch because:
:It's easier to look at it to get the time than to locate my phone and drag it from its hiding place.
: It's analogue, and I prefer analogue timepieces to digital.
: I don't feel properly dressed without it.
: It looks good.

I like watches!! I don't always wear them though - only once in a while I'll put one on but I usually forget. I like analog ones, too and I wear them just so I can listen to them tick. So, even if I am wearing one, I'll forget and go looking for my cell or a clock to get the time. duh.

Neither when I go out, or even stay home. I keep a pocketwatch with me. * I love pocketwatches! * :D

I have a mobile phone, and so don't need a watch.

I don't think I've worn a watch in over ten years, but when I did, I wore it around my right wrist, because it felt weird and annoying to have it around my left wrist.

Its on my left to hide a freckle/mole that I have had there since I was a kid. When I was little I told other kids that I was a robot and it was my on and off button....it got me some attention when I was very young but when I got older the kids just told me I was a weirdo.
I have my medical ID on my right wrist.

I remember this being a big deal for me when I was younger. I couldn't figure out which wrist I should wear my watch on, but I eventually decided on the right wrist. Now that you mention it, I do remember people saying that most people wear it on their left wrist, which is probably why I chose right - I didn't want to be like most people, I wanted to be unique (which is also why I rejected the colour blue).

I don't wear a watch now, but I sometimes wish I did because it's annoying to have to remember to carry a phone around but I need it for alarm reminders and a watch wouldn't let me set that many.

I wear bracelets on both wrists now. My wrists feel weird and vulnerable with no bracelets and plus my left hand is full of stim-friendly jewelery for my right hand to fidget with. :)

Edit: Why can't I ever answer simple questions with simple answers? I always share way more information than was requested or required. :roll:
