    Curious to see how my fellow left handers wear their watches. I prefer right, but it's difficult finding watches with the crown on the left. I also use a mouse with the right hand so it's probably not wise to be dragging the strap over my desk.

    I'll be the first to actually admit it.....RIGHT.

    Not sure if I'm right or wrong, just something I've been doing since a kid.

    Interesting poll...would love to see the results.

    Same. I tried the left deal for a few weeks, didn't feel right. Who cares if the dial is on the right.

    If it matters one jot, I am right handed and wear a watch on my right wrist. That started with a ski-ing injury many years ago and has never changed.

    I have always worn mine on the right. I like that I do not have to worry about crowns sticking in the back of my hand.

    I'm an ambidexter i wear my watches on both hands (not simultaneously), generally i wear smaller watches on left hand and bigger ones on right so that the crowns wont stick in the back of my hand.

    I´m right handed and I´ve always worn it on my left. For one, it looks weird in the right, I just don´t like, then there´s also the fact that the dail is on the right and last, I play tennis and would feel very uncomfortable with a watch on the hand I hold the racket with.
