Which wrist for wrist watch?

I've always worn my watch on my right wrist. I rarely see others do this, but It's always felt more comfortable there. But then I am left handed, which is probably the reason. How about you?

18% = GTA residents as a proportion of Canada's total population
97% = chance that an RFDer lives in the GTA when he posts something location specific, without giving a location

Were you hit with surprise customs/import fees on an Amazon.ca purchase?

Most people are right-handed and wear watches on the left hand.

You should add 2 more categories for ambidextrous people

Right handed, wear on right. Have always done it since I could remember. I know that my watch gets banged up more but it feel weird to wear it on the left.

It is the other way around. If you're right handed, you wear it on the left. If you're left handed, you wear it on the right

I'm the opposite. I'm left handed and wear it on my left (when I wore a watch... it's been years since). But yeah, one of the reasons I don't wear a watch is because of how beaten up the watch gets.

The only reason I can explain it is as a lefty, I've adapted to a right hand world more so than most lefties. I am not ambidextrous, but through out life, I was forced to do most things right handed: bat right, golf right, bowl right (yeah, that one's weird), use scissors with my right hand, etc. So wearing a watch on my left like everyone else was fine.

Left-handed here, for as long as I remember I've always worn my watch on my left.

The rule is that men wear on the left while women wears on the right

As long as I remember, always wear on the left regardless of right-handed or not. I rarely see it on the right.
