    Right, else it covers up my tattoo and that'd have been a waste of money.

    No school and no job? That's not going to last forever bro.

    OT: I wear my watch on my left wrist, because I'm right handed and it allows me to check the time while I'm also doing something else.

    Don't wear a watch. Or any other kind of jewelry for that matter.

    I work in a heavy industry environment, wearing stuff like that can get you injured or killed, so I just got out of the habit.

    Pocket watch for me, so neither wrist.

    I haven't worn a watch since i was 12,but i recall having it on my left arm since it's hard to write with it on the right and it used to get into my way.

    (i'm right-handed)

    I have lost count of the number of guys I've heard say this in passing over the years. LOL

    This.

    Although it can't be a digital watch, or a power rangers watch. Silver finish with a suit or just a shirt and trousers looks pretty boss.

    Also I wear it on my left since I'm right handed. Wearing it on your right arm when you're right handed would be... annoying, since that's the hand you'll be doing everything with, from punching someone to hammering a nail to using your mouse... much more chance of the watch breaking/discomfort.
    Also yes I do want a pocket watch!

    Left is the correct way. People wearing it on the right arm just look stupid. That aside I haven't worn a watch for many years now. My phone took over its job and then some.
    Well excuuuse me, Princess.

    You are now breathing manually.

    Wrong. The correct way is to wear it on the non dominate hand side so you have a less chance in damaging it through usage.

    Right handed? Wear left!
    Left handed? Wear right!

    Simple as that.

    I always take my watch off when I'm behind the computer because its annoying.

    Taking your mobile phone out of your pocket to check the time mostly feels to me as a way to try to show off with your mobile phone.
    But I suppose the same can be said if you are flashing a expensive watch to check the time but atleast it is what they are made for. ^^'

    You know there are people left handed who finds it very annoying to have it on the left arm..

    I am actually left handed but only write with my left hand and do other things (i.e. mouse clicking) with my right hand so I wear it on the left arm anyhow.

    When I do, it's on my left wrist. I primarily write with my right hand and since I had a surgery on my right wrist, things on it bother me quite a bit and get in the way.

    I'm right handed and I wear it on my right wrist...

    Then again, it doesn't work, I have a phone for that.

    I just look classy as balls.

    I'm so pretentious.
