Exactly. Although you should wear it on whichever side wrist you feel comfortable, the general rule of thumb is to follow the crown of the watch.

I'm a lefty and wear the watch on my right hand. I've tried on a couple watched with the crown on the left, thinking it would be more useful but I've grown so accustomed to having it the other way around that it just didn't feel right.

I'm a lefty and wear it on my left wrist. Always have. I'm a but odd though - I play guitar right handed and use cutlery in the same way a right hander would.

I used to wear watches on my right wrist, but once I started going higher end on watches switched to the left so I wouldn't drag my bracelets and straps on the desk when mousing.  Now it feels totally normal, took about a week to fully adjust.

What do people mean by follow the crown? Does that mean if the crown is the on right you wear it on the left so you can adjust it with your right.

When I wear a watch, I put it on my right wrist.

 

It's a matter of balance and perceived function for me, though.

 

Something watch-sized on my left wrist would feel out of place.

 

Since as my right hand occupies a secondary role in relation to my left, though, it seems correct to wear something on there that is both tangibly present and largely ornamental.

 

I generally use my phone to check the time, so my watch-wearing protocol is influenced by that practice.

 

There hasn't been much trouble with the crown of the watch, although that depends. 

 

I imagine the crown of that particular Panerai would cause significantly more discomfort than that of a slim, older watch.

Yes.

You would need to take the watch off otherwise, which is not too much of an issue for many, but can be the cause of significant annoyance for some.

lefty with the watch on the right. does back pocket wallet placement also indicate handedness? always kept my wallet on the left.

Typically you are supposed to wear your watch on your non dominant hand. Since I am right handed I wear mine on my left. My girlfriend is left handed and prefers to wear it on her right. I am guessing the reasoning behind this is so that it doesnt get bashed around as much.

Left handed, watch on right, mouse with left. I take my watch off when working at the computer all day. Less chance of damage to the watch.
