Right-Right. It's odd but the first watch I ever put on went on my right wrist and now I couldn't put it on my left to save my life.

Left handed - left wrist. I used to wear it on my right when I was younger, but a few years ago I started wearing it on my left and haven't stopped.

Left handed and wear mine on the right, so it does not get in the way when I am writting.

Also right-right, for the same reason. Well, I don't find it much harder to put one on my left wrist, but I've always worn it on my right so it just feels most comfortable to continue to do so.

Same here. My watches take lots of abuse on my left wrist, it would be worse if worn on my right.

I don't see my use case, either: right handed, wear watch on either wrist depending on mood. Or moon.

I started wearing my first watch on my left wrist (right handed) and it just kind of stuck. I also like to wear it because of writing with my right hand as I am in university. Now I just have the habit of lifting my left hand to get the time.

Deciding on which wrist to wear your watch based on your mood or the look of the moon at that particular time could potentially make you the equivalent of a psychic palm reader or crazy cat lady. No offense.

Right-right, though I've tried wearing it left now that I have a tattoo on my right wrist.

I was born left-handed but at age 4 I had surgery on my left hand to remove a birth defect on my thumb. I was too much of a pussy at age 4 to follow through on the physical therapy so my left thumb doesn't fully articulate. Since then I've been right-handed and wear my watch on the right. I also hold a pen like a lefty.
