What arm are you supposed to wear a watch on? I've always worn mine on my right arm, because I'm right handed. But, my dad says that they go on your left arm. So, I'm asking you guys, what arm do you wear watches on? :)

time travel back to 1984
i am in a little row boat with some people
in mount tremblant
at that time the subject came up
that I was an artist,
and one of the young ladies in the boat said
oh but real artists dont wear watches
because watches restrict and regulate
blah blah blah
so she grabbed my hand ripped my watch off
and chucked it into lac tremblant
it is at the bottom and has been so ever since,

was I sad about my watch,
not really
the young lady made it up to me that night
for being a good sport and for being a true artist;)

*and I never got around to buying another one
cause I am lazy and a TRUE Artiste!

I am right handed and have always worn mine on the left. For me it seems more natural there.

I don't know if there is any protocol or anything but just go with what you think is comfortable.

My first ever watch was a Klingon watch. Wasn't I special?

Left!! And I'm right handed. It has a reason you know :) When you write, you shouldn't have your watch on your 'good wrist', because it will scratch over the table, damaging the watch and probably making sounds, which is annoying to surrounding ppl :)

All you right handed, right wearing ppl are WRONG!! YOU HEAR ME!?!?! WRONGGGGGG!!! :p :p

I voted Yoda :D

But I go with the late-majority on this one: I'm right-handed, and when I do wear a watch, it's on my left arm. 'Cos that's how it's done. (The girls way? Damn you Agen!! ;) )

As it goes I hardly ever wear a watch these days. Not since an ex-girlfriend of mine smashed one up with a hammer (I know, I know...). I half agree with the 'constriction' theory - ie. It's an excuse for always being late. But the fact is I've got a clock on my Mobe, so I don't need a watch. Or maybe I need a watch with a built-in mobile? :D

Dude, not having a watch is so... Pffff :rolleyes: I can remember at basic school ( I guess it's called Junior High there in the US ;)) I was one of the only ppl with a watch. OK it wasn't a new one, but everyone allways asked ME what the time was... In fact, I've allways been wearing a watch since I learned how to 'read' a watch :D

AND I like watches. I have three very pretty ones, and no watch is cheaper than €110 :) If you take care for it, it doesn't need to be smashed :)

/me loves watches :)

I'm right handed and I wear mine (which broke) on my right. It feels more natural.

I'm right handed, but it's more comfortable to have it on my left. I don't know why, it's just better like that for me.

Whenever I right, it doesn't make sounds and scratch it up. Get a better excuse! :xp:

Are you saying that it is impossible for a ball to hit your non-frontal hitting hand and break the watch? If a guy can hit a ball after he swung (the force of the bat went behind him and he got a single after it made contact with the ball) then I am pretty sure I can do that.

YOU HAVE TO WEAR LONG SLEEVES!!!! It is like 108 out here now. It breaks 100 each day at the very least.

I hate you and your cold weather.

Uh, we paly baseball in the spring. Its not cold here right now. I put the AC on full blast. :p

Like I said, its good to wear a watch. If there is enoguht power to break the watch, then if it only hit my skin, I would be hurt pretty bad. :p But, I get hit a lot when I play Baseball. The pitches aren't that powerful, and neither are the hits. Lastly, my watch is like 20 bucks, so not much of a loss. ;)

I'm right-handed, and I wear it on my left (did anyway, I took it off for the summer, time doesn't matter and I don't want a tan line). Other than that, the opposite hand is the way it's done people, there's no second way of doing it. Right-handed=watch on left, Left-handed=watch on right. You either do it that way, don't wear a watch, or you're wrong, plain and simple. :p:D
