    Watches: The where/how do you wear them thread

    What kind of watch do you wear, and do you wear it on your dominant hand (i.e., if you're right handed do you wear it on your left hand)?

    Also, do you wear it facing inward (rotated into the inner part of the wrist) or normal (al dente)?

    And why?

    Important stuff here, as we all lose our minds with the season looming.

    Well I know SAR has a Rolex. He probably wears it on his weiner. On the very first hole closest to the watch.

    This. Any other answer is folly.

    I wear it on my left wrist, even though I'm left-handed.

    Left (non dominant) wrist, dial up.

    I've got about 50 watches as I'm a bit of a collector, the ones I wear the most are my Omega Speedmaster '57 Reissue (leather strap, retro, casual) and my Rolex Submariner Date (steel bracelet, current, business casual). My beater watch is a Luminox Navy Seal (lightweight, battery, rubber strap) which is a great utility player.

    Everyone man needs 3 watch types: Sport, dress, beater.

    I have a Breitling I got as a graduation gift. Can't remember the last time I wore it. I don't like watches or jewelry. I use my iPhone to tell time.

    nice. The Omega is great.

    The 3 things I'll ever wear on my wrist are a Timex Ironman Shock, Suunto X-lander, and Fortrex 401. I need a dress watch when I dress up, I suppose, but I usually wear nothing with my suits unless I'm working (Suunto).

    What kind of Breitling? I'll gladly take it off your hands.

    Sorry but it is not for sale. Sentimental value. It is a Chronomat 44.

    Speaking of fancy watches, I was at a wedding last month and a guy was wearing a Patek. Never saw one in the flesh before. Basically the equivalent of wearing a nice new car on your wrist.

    No Jetworks yet???:D

    Any man who wears a watch on his right hand needs a good ***** slapping.

    Also, what the hell is with this trend of guys wearing white watches??? I see this all the time now, wtf is wrong with people???

    Anyways, I wear a Tissot...planning on an Omega Seamaster sometime soon.

    Just what I was going to say. Don't really need all the dials on those watches now-a-days, but still a nice watch that'll put a dent in your wallet.
