    I have heard that you should be wearing your watch on the wrist of the hand you don't write with. So with that being said, I wear my watch on my left wrist.

    I have tried wearing my watch on my right wrist but it is way too weird and alien feeling. Not a fan.

    Right handed and wear my watch on the right. I can't do looser metal watch bands because the get all floppy doing all the things I use a dominant hand for. Beat the hell out of watches at times too wearing it on the dominant hand. It made sense early in my military career because the control for the radio was over my left ear and sometimes I needed to check the time without taking my hand away. Just the way I do it now.

    Lefty. Not sure why. I think my Dad taught that to me when I was 7.

    When I got my new gshock it took me a while to learn not to whack door jambs on exiting rooms.

    Currently have my paracord bracelet on the right.

    Right handed so it seems natural to have my watch on my left wrist.

    I'm left handed. I started out wearing my watch on my right wrist. Thought I was supposed to. Then I switched while in basic to my left wrist because the front site of the M16 would catch the band. Wore it like that for a long time. Then I stopped wearing a watch for a long time. Got a watch and started back wearing it on the left but it rubbed my wrist raw. Got another watch that had a SS band and still couldn't wear it on the left so I swapped back to the right wrist. WHEW!

    I've always done left wrist watch wearing since I was in fifth grade. I think people who are right handed usually wear on the left wrist. Indeed, it would get in my way when writing...otherwise I'd consider wearing two: one on left, one on right. I wonder when that'll get in style.

    I've worn watches on my right wrist since I can remember, which is also my writing hand so it feels more natural for me. If there is anything on my left wrist/ hand it annoys the heck out of me!

    I've always worn mine on my left wrist. It just feels awkward on my right wrist.

    As others have mentioned, the 'traditional' way is to wear it on the non-dominant hand. I believe this was to prevent the watch from getting scratched up in activities you'd be using your dominant hand for, like writing for example. But I don't think there's really a right or wrong way. However you feel comfortable wearing a watch is how you should wear it.

    I wear left side,and I am left handed(Well, mostly left handed, I can write, among other things, with either hand, but will do most task easier left handed.). Dunno why i started on the left side, probably because my Dad wore his there(he was a righty). There are times I find it cumbersome at work, but those times it would get in the way on either hand anyway, since i usually have both hands shoved in somewhere at that point.

    Lately, I've been wearing a nato band sans watch on my right as a bracelet, and have a compass on that strap when i need it too, so I could swap the watch to that side if needed with no prob.

    Left-handed, right-watched

    I'm all screwed up. Right hand dominant for some things, left hand dominant for others. Throw right handed, stronger in the right arm. Bat and shoot either hand. Start IV's with either hand. Write and eat left-handed. But my watch is always on my right wrist.
