If you’re left-handed and right-handed.
When looking for a new watch, one of the most important factors to consider is where you’ll be wearing it. If you’re right-handed, wearing your watch on your right wrist makes it much easier to check the time, since your hand will naturally fall on that side. If you wear a watch on both wrists, make sure the one closest to your dominant hand (i.e. if you’re right-handed, put it on your left wrist) is easier to check by placing it higher up so that you can look at its face without having to move your arm too much (also known as checking “on top”). This way, every time you need to know what time it is, you’ll be able to do so easily and with no unnecessary movements or glances down.
If you’re left-handed and wear a watch on your left wrist or both wrists, the practice outlined above applies in reverse: wear the watch higher up so that it’s easier to see while still moving less of your arm. Doing this also allows you keep track of time when writing by resting part of the pen in between where the watch band meets your wrist and hand—a more precise alternative for professional writers who want a quick reference when drafting their next masterpiece.
If you’re right-handed.
Most watch enthusiasts will recommend that you wear your watch on the same hand as your dominant arm, whether that’s your right or left. This makes sense: not only will you be able to easily check the time without having to shake off a layer of clothes or turn awkwardly around, but wearing it on a different hand can lead to uneven weight distribution and therefore discomfort and possible health problems over time. However, this is different if you’re a woman. While ideally you’d wear your watch on either your right or left hand, there are cases where it’s better to wear it on the opposite—and here’s why.
If you’re right-handed, wearing your watch on your left hand can help prevent wrist pain or tennis elbow in the future. That’s because most people tend to favor one side of their body for fine movements (like writing) and the other for strength (like throwing). By wearing an object like a watch that needs constant adjustment with one of these hands more often than another, you can slowly lead yourself into an uncomfortable position over time.
This advice goes against traditional wisdom about which hand is considered more attractive overall; in fact, many men believe that wearing a watch makes them look more masculine. But if we’re sticking strictly to benefits for comfort and health, there’s no reason why women shouldn’t take advantage of this opportunity at sporting watches on both sides of their arms!
If you’re a woman.
As a left-handed woman, the watch you choose to wear is an important decision. While watches are mostly worn on the left hand for men, that’s not the case for women. If you’re a southpaw, you have two options: wearing your watch on your right hand or having it rest on your right wrist (commonly known as “off-wrist”).
Although either style can work, there are some general rules of thumb based on your build to help guide you in selecting the best possible option. If you have a small wrist and want to show off your feminine figures with subtle curves and details, wearing your watch on the left hand will draw attention away from its size towards those better features. On the other hand, if you have a large wrist and want to minimize its appearance (or just aren’t into watches that stand out), choosing to keep it off-wrist could be more beneficial to you in this situation. Shoulder straps also come into consideration here—if yours dangles longer than 3 inches past one inch below where it meets the strap clasped around your wrist, then chances are that leaving it off will make it look too long and potentially get caught in things like car doors or even brush against your legs while walking. Keeping an eye out for these issues will help prevent any accidental damage or embarrassment for yourself!
If you’re left-handed.
Choosing a watch for your wrist is an important decision. If you’re a lefty and have never worn a watch on your right hand before, this may present some challenges. Ultimately, it comes down to three factors: what you need it to do, where you’re going to wear it, and how much money you have.
While it’s true that watches can be used as fashion accessories as well as functional pieces of technology, if all you’re looking for is something to tell the time in an attractive style then there are other options out there besides a traditional wristwatch . You could pick up an analog clock or one of those personal organizers called “watches” that come with many apps pre-installed (though most of them are still designed for being worn on the left hand). These might not be the most practical choices, but they can still get the job done—and they don’t require research and comparison like a real watch does.
If you want more than just the basics from your wristwatch—such as fitness tracking or smart features like notification alerts—you’ll probably have to spend some money. Smartwatches range in price from $60 up into five-plus figures depending on where they fall in terms of functionality and designer brand name recognition. Your best bet if all you care about is telling time is that sweet spot at around $150-$250 USD—a price range that offers plenty of variety in both quality and design options without breaking the bank. The gold standard for value versus performance probably comes from Casio, which offers great durability and accuracy at competitive prices across its product line-up . Many models feature solar charging (bridging off sun exposure rather than through your body temperature), so even if their battery dies after a few years’ use there’s no reason that would make your fake watch stop working entirely!
If you’re right-handed and left-handed.
Have you ever been out in the wild and found yourself unable to read a trail marker or a sign because it was on the other side of your body? This can get very uncomfortable, especially if you’re traveling with one arm.
What is the best way to handle this situation? Don’t worry, this article has all the answers. By following some straightforward steps, you can be sure that no matter what situation you find yourself in, your watch’s face will always be facing toward your body. The goal here is to keep things simple and avoid any unnecessary complications.
For men and women with small wrists.
When the time comes to grab your wristwatch for a night out on the town, it’s nice to feel like you’re all dressed up with somewhere to go. What could be more stylish than a stylish watch? But if your wrist is small, it can be difficult to find a watch that fits both your fashion and practical needs.
One solution: look for smaller watches with smaller straps. A basic rule of thumb is that you want the bulk of the watch face to sit no more than halfway up your wrist. This will ensure that it doesn’t overwhelm the delicate proportions of your hand, or make it look too masculine on a feminine dresser.
Small-wristed men should also consider wearing their watches on their inner wrists, instead of their outer ones. If you wear your watch on the outside, its bulk will stick out further—and this effect will be even more pronounced if you have slim wrists in addition to slim hands. You don’t want something so bulky looking distract from all those hard-earned muscles!
If you have tiny wrists.
If you were blessed with small wrists, wearing a watch might seem like a chore. Fortunately, there are options to make sure your timepiece looks good on your wrist. It’s important to note that no matter what you do the watch will be visible if worn on the right hand. If you’re interested in wearing it on the right hand, it is important to wear it at least an inch away from your wrist so it doesn’t appear too small or tight (unless you want this effect).
What if we decide to put our watches on our left hands? There’s still more work we need to put into making sure they look gorgeous. The primary issue with this is how large your watch face appears from an angle—it can look strangely small and out of place if the band isn’t adjusted properly. One way I’ve seen people counter this problem is by having multiple bands for their watches: one for daily wear that tucks under the watch face and puts less emphasis on its size and a second bigger band for special occasions that draws more attention to the watch itself. This allows them varying options depending on how they feel about their watches every day of the week.
All in all, there are several options for those who want quality wristwear but don’t want them to take over their outfits or draw attention away from themselves when they’re trying to focus on something else (all while looking fashionable nonetheless).
For men and women with large wrists.
If you have large hands and take a watch seriously, the best option is to wear it on the left hand. A while back when I was getting my first real job, I had just enough money to buy one nice thing: a watch. I had always admired the look of men’s watches on women’s wrists, and decided that this would be my chance to try it out. However, as soon as I tried to put it on my right hand, I knew there was going to be a problem. My wrist wasn’t wide enough for such a big timepiece. Not willing to give up on this new accessory so quickly (or give in to society’s unnecessary gendering of clothing), I headed over to the jewelry department at Zellers and bought some fake pearls for $5.
That worked for about eight years—but now that I’ve worn through the string holding them together, they’re ready for replacement. Seriously considering cutting off my thumb next time.
