    I am right handed and I wear my watch on my left wrist. But sometimes I like to switch it up and wear it on my right wrist but it doesn’t feel as comfortable.

    @legenwaitforitdary:  It took me months and months of torture to get used to wearing my watch on my left wrist (I was a kid, you automatically go for the right) But I had to because I was very active (rough sports!) and also a big writer, so my watches didn’t last long, or they were so badly scratched they were useless!

    I switch it up depending on if it coordinates nicely with my wedding set 😛

    @legenwaitforitdary:  So excited about my watch because it was my grandmothers and she left it for me when she passed, saying it was for me to wear when I got married. So now, i get to wear it! (Right handed, on my left wrist)

    @legenwaitforitdary:  I write with both hands, but I wear my watch on my left wrist. It just feels badckwards on my right. I wear a watch every day.

    Looks like I’m the only other right handed bee who wears the watch on the right wrist, it just feels uncomfortable on the left

    As I am right handed, then “technically” my right hand is the dominent / more busy one… makes sense then that the left hand / wrist would put the watch in less peril.  Just the same, I still have managed to scratch too many watch crystals over the years.

    Frown *sigh*

    I like Jewellery of all kinds (costume to custom), and Watches are no exception… I have had quite a few in my lifetime, and acquired a “small collection”

    My most recent watch would be my Wedding Watch that Mr TTR gave me on the morning of our Wedding (we exchanged gifts, lol… MY Watch was a surprise, his he knew about ahead of time).

    As I’ve posted the photo of our Wedding Watches before here on WBee, I have chosen to post a photo of how my love of watches all began (not my watch / photo).  1960s and an early version of the Mickey Mouse Watch… I wore that watch every day as a little kid… LOVED that watch.

    Lol, this post has got me to thinking, maybe I should get out to a Disney Store and find me a “modern” version that might be fun to wear from time-to-time (haha, funny pun)

    I only wear a watch when I need to cover up my (small) tattoo on my left wrist and I don’t want to wear long sleeves. 

    ETA: I am right handed. I used to wear a watch everyday during high school and it was more comfortable on my right wrist. I only switched to my left due to my tattoo 🙂

    I am right handed and wear a watch on my left, unless I have to wear a wrist brace. Then I wear a pendant watch. Interesting point though, my DH and both my late parents are left handed. My father wore his watch on his right wrist but my mother and DH wore theirs in their right wrists.
