The reason you wear your watch on the left wrist is the prevent damage to the crystal, which happens if your wear
it on your primary hand or right hand, The same rules apply for south paws, they wear theirs on the right wrist.
I remember my uncle telling me this, I was always breaking my wristband and cracking the crystal

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.
