    Right handed wear experiment - wanna try with me?

    Happy Sunday everyone

    I decided to do an experiment today. Trying out wearing my watch on the right for the first time. So far I kind of like it



    A new thing? We'll see

    Anyone else normally wear on left decide to try it in right?

    If not try it today and post your wrist shot here

    I'll try it now. I think I'll start light with my GA-100.


    5 min later:
    I find it annoying to use and write with, so it's going off and back too the box.

    If give it a try but I wear one of those magnetic bracelet things that's supposed to heal you magically or some such crap on my right. Don't think the Pelagos im wearing today is anti magnetic so I'd better not.
    And that bracelet clasp was a piece of junk so was crimped on with pliers and I can't take it off

    I've already tried it a few times before and found the experience highly uncomfortable.

    I've always worn on my right (as a southpaw), wearing it on the wrong (non-right) wrist is just weird.

    I bang up my watches enough on my non-dominant hand. I imagine they'd look worse wearing them on my dominant side.

    That ^^^, in a mirror.
    It may sound a bit odd, but I actually feel off-balance.
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.
