    Having this discussion at lunch time and I for one wear my watch on my right hand - seems normal. Most people seem to have it on their left hand but that looks weird.
    Are you left or right?

    I remember when I had my first watch with a winder (no digital then) people said you should wear it on the left because the heartbeat kept it regular. Don't know the truth of this though but back then everyone seemed to wear it on the left

    Perhaps the reason for the LHS is thats these old watches were easily wound up by the rigt hand ie for right handers. The opposite for lefties.

    On my left wrist, and I'm left handed. Its on the left because winders are on the right, and you could wind the watch without taking it off. My present watch is solar powered and radio controlled, so never needs adjusting, but I still wear it on the left because that's what I became used to.

    On my left wrist, right handed, right footed, use left foot for balance according to my old football coach! Funny I could bat left handed though!
