    I'm curious as to how you wear your wrist watches. I'd like to know if you wear it face on the inside or outside of your arm, and which arm that is. I just think it is an interesting thing about how people differ in wearing their watches.

    I'll Start:

    My Watch is Worn on the Left arm, face on the inside of my arm.
    It is only a problem with digital watches, where flexing the wrist activates the buttons.

    left wrist
    face out when I wear one
    but most days I dont

    my mom used to wear hers on her right wrist with the face in
    which I always thought was weird
    she did it because of her dyslexia
    or so she said

    left wrist fossil titanium - usually facing out, but with the metal band, it rolls from out to in often, and I'm just used to it either way.

    depends on the watch...

    my metal wristband watches i wear loose like a bracelet...sometime face up, sometimes face down. dress watches( leather band) i wear face up and snug on my wrist. my biking/running watch i wear snug, facing up.

    always on my left wrist.

    aren't you glad you asked.... ;)

    I'm wierd, I wear mine on my right wrist with the face on the inside, it's a legacy of a bad cut on my right wrist some years ago...

    I've got a new RADO Ceramica multi-function, very nice, and essentially scratchproof too... :D

    Here's a pic

    I have a Snap watch, worn on the left wrist, faced up. The snap watches avoid that 'watch tan line' effect in summer and are also less cumbersome / sweaty

    Swiss Army stainless steel. Left facing out.
    Damn fine watch. This is the second one I've owned. I broke the first one - my fault.
    I've owned at least 5 Timex watches. Junk. Never again.

    Left wrist, facing out. That's pretty normal, apparently. But I'm left-handed, so it's still a little weird.

    4 watches up the left arm (all Rolex) 6 watches up the right arm (more rolexes) and 16 tucked inside various pockets in my trenchcoat (antiques-found them laying around the museum) :p


    Seriously-no watches for me. I have a hard time making them last more than 6 months before breaking.

    Same here, though I'm right handed. Whenever I don't have my watch on it always feels like I'm missing something...can't stand that feeling. :)

    Gucci Watch, Right wrist, facing out. I find it;s too much effort to lift my left wrist up to look at the time, seeing as I'm right handed. A bit weird, but hey...

    How do I wear MY watch?


    Think back to Christopher Walken in "Pulp Fiction - The Watch"...


    Telling the time is a right bastard, let me tell you.

    :p

    When I had a wristwatch, I wore it on the right arm facing out, even though I'm right handed.

    Now that I have a pocketwatch, I clip the chain to a belt loop and put it in my right pocket. If I'm at a formal event, I clip the chain to the top of my waistband under my belt.

    Left wrist.

    The face is aligned on the same side as the back of my hand.
