Absolutely! How else would I know how much longer I have left to suffer through my classes?
I am the exact same way. Left-handed and always wear a watch on my left.
I've realized I don't pay attention and don't know how other people do it.
I was wearing a watch for a good while, a Timex Weekender on a nice strap. I wasn't really huge into watches, but I wanted something inexpensive but classy, and the watch+strap combo on Huckberry looks great. But not long ago, the watch has quit on me, and I've discovered just how much I am in the habit of looking at my wrist for the time, and how much I'm used to the feeling of it being there. So I've got a Seiko 5 incoming, because I've decided I actually care about watches and I want something nicer on my wrist than a cheap quartz, as nice as the Weekender and Expedition Timexes are for their price. So yeah, I wasn't sure that my watch was part of my necessary EDC, right up until it didn't work and I stopped wearing it.
Yeah, it never struck me as being odd since most people i know also wear on the left. But I think it's the product of living in a right handed world. I have had several people tell me that the "proper" way to wear a watch is on your off hand.

One thing I find a little interesting.....
A long time ago people used to have pocket watches. Constantly reaching into their pockets to pull out the time. Then it was decided that was too inefficient for various reasons, and the wrist watch was 'born' (common use caught on in the late 1800s). Now people are arguing against wrist watches, they can just look at their phone. Cell phones have become a modern day 'pocket watch' in my opinion.
Long live wrist watches!
I always wear a watch and enjoy wearing one, but strangely I always take it off while I'm indoors at home.
Now I know. Huh. I think are right. I learned to shoot right-handed, too, orginally.
I feel naked without a watch. I've been wearing once since I was able to tell time as a kid.
I've never left home without one and would be inclined to turn around if I ever did.
You can tell direction with an analog watch.
Instructions are on Wikihow.
That's right! Finding north is very simple!
With your wrist flat point the hour hand at the sun. Halfway between the hour hand and the minute hand is south so the opposite end of the watch face from that southern point is north!
I don't think it works in the Southern Hemisphere for some reason?
There's watches that make this easier. A GMT with the GMT hand set to local time is one... All you have to do is the first step and the GMT hand will point north. There's also watches like the Seiko SARB017 with rotating compass bezel. The Alpinist is a very tasteful camping watch, btw... Prices directly from Japan are a steal these days.
My watch is a must-have for me. I've been rocking a Casio G-Shock 5610, which is solar and atomic. I teach and take classes, and am into hunting and shooting, etc. It's always handy to know the exact time.
from what I understand you should wear your watch on your non dominant hand I've seen that mentioned in a few places
I wear on my right arm
Yes, a necessity. absolute must have for vital signs, and a fellow without a watch just appears aloof, not in a hurry, doesn't need to be anywhere to do anything.
Left arm my dominant arm is how I wear it.
I use my watch daily can't have phones in plant at work and no clocks any where.

I always have a watch on and with over 20 years wearing them I feel odd without one on. I will remove it at work when required or at home if I am working on a car or dirt bike. My day is all about time so I check it often. I dont know if anyone else does but I check it out of habit not registering the time and checking it again moments later to get the time. It normally raises question. The features I use are the stop watch, count down, and alarm. One of my watches doubles as a GPS so I will use that also when running or hiking.
As for wear its on the left and the face on the inside of my wrist.

Yes. I don't own any expensive watches, but they are an important part of my EDC. Try taking your watch off during the day. You'll probably notice yourself looking at your wrist a lot. A quick glance is better then pulling out a cell phone, turning it on, looking at the time, and turning it off.
