I know that left handed (crown on the left hand side of the case) watches exist but does anyone here (left handed or otherwise) actually own one or wear one? Are they really worth the extra premium that one has to pay for one of these oddities?
I was just interested in the topic as I saw a left handed Baume & Mercier Capeland which apparently is a limited edition of 500 (not as limited as an edition of only 5).
I wear a Sinn EZM1 on my left wrist. That way the crown pushers do not poke into the back of my hand. When I dive, the pushers don't snag anything. I've always worn my depth gauge on my right hand. In addition to the Panerai Destro, Chronoswiss makes a Timemaster and Timemaster Chrono with large "onion" left-handed crowns. I don't think it is a matter of paying a premium for the left-handed crown they are just not done that often and usually done by high end watch makers. There are cheaper Invicta models that have or have hand left-handed crowns.
I am left handed and generally wear right handed watches due to the paucity of left-handed watches. I do however own a left handed Cartier Tank Americaine. It was a limited edition of 5 made back in the early 2000's and is one of my favorites. Cartier has made several other limited edition left handed watches including the Santos. The only other company that I know of that makes left handed watches (although again in limited numbers) is Panerai. I spoke with Vacheron and they would make a left handed patrimony for me through their atelier program. The cost, however, for this "bespoke" service was quite expensive over the regular patrimony.
