    As you can see, a hugely important question that is up there with 'what is the point in existence?', 'is there really a God(s)?' and 'why is Justin Bieber still alive?'. Are you an upstanding citizen who wears it on the left like God intended, a complete weirdo who has it on the right or one of those uncouth yobbos who doesn't actually have a watch and uses his mobile phone instead; better yet, are you a gentleman with a watch on a chain?

    I wear mine on the left since I'm a normal human being, though I take it off whenever I'm actually doing something (computing, exercising, having a poo etc.).

    There would've been a poll but...

    ... but we've been through this and it ended with me getting bollocked.

    LEFT cos I've got my never-take-off bracelet on my right and wearing them together would be odd. But I do take my watch off whenever I'm doing writing.

    I'm a right wrist weirdo. I wear my (binary) watch on my right wrist, because when I wear a watch on the left wrist, playing guitar gets very irritating. The muscles moving under the strap start to itch and I get pissed off. When it's on the right, all is well.

    Neither, I use my phone.

    Thought when I used to wear a watch, it was on the left. It's obviously the correct side ;)

    Left, back when I was a watch-wearer. The people who wear watches on the inside of their wrist annoy the feck out of me.

    But I use my phone now because I am completely averse to wearing any form of jewellery, functional or not. I just have a complete dislike of it touching me.

    Left. I'm right handed, wearing it on my right hand is beyond annoying when using a mouse,writing, etc.

    Left, however to counteract this normalness I never wear it directly on my wrist but over a long-sleeved t-shirt/normal shirt. This is because my wrists are too small for most watches.

    I ould love to ware a watch but they don't work on me.:sigh:
    I have tried two watches and they will keep the time for a day at most then freeze. I then have to reset it it.
    Funny things is if I left it off me it runs away fine.:duh:

    On my hip through the belt loop thingy, it gets too annoying when I climb otherwise.

    Note: most watches only measure in minutes. When a watch stops on each minute it is functioning normally. :thumb:

    I dont wear a watch. When I did, I wore it on the right. No particular reason. I just did.

    But, when I had a pocket watch, like the classy individual I once was, I wore it in my left pocket.
