Which Hand Should I Wear My Watch On?

There is a lot of information out there on wristwatches, but one thing that still seems to be undecided is which hand should you wear your watch on?

Well, we've done a little digging and have come up with 4 things that you should take into account, before you commit to a side!

So let's jump straight in..

4. Can You Access The Necessary Buttons?

The first thing to consider when choosing a wrist is the buttons and crown on your watch.

The crown is the small mechanical movement that adjusts time. Your watch may also have buttons with stopwatch capabilities if it is a chronograph.

Try your watch out on both wrists and see which one seems more suitable for accessing these functions.

Watches are typically designed so that the crown and accompanying buttons point down towards your hand, but some people find that it can dig into your hand and so they prefer it facing up their arm.

So make sure you have a play around and see what works for you!

3. Which Hand Is Your Dominant?

Another thing to consider is whether you are right or left handed!

If you are right handed for example, you may want to wear your watch on your left hand, so that it doesn't get in the way of your daily jobs.

A watch can also be heavy, so wearing it on your right hand could lead to wrist strain or muscle pains.

If you are going to wear your watch on your dominant hand, be sure to change it over if it starts to hurt so that you don't do any lasting damage!

2. How Durable Is Your Watch?

Another case for wearing your watch on your non dominant hand is to make sure you consider how durable the watch you are wearing is!

If it is an inexpensive watch it will be more likely to scratch, so consider wearing it on the hand you use less, giving it less chance to knock into something and cause damage.

At Giovici, we take pride in the fact that all of our watches are encased in polished stainless steel and a scratch resistant sapphire coated lens.

1. What Feels More Comfortable?

This is by far the most important point on our list.

At the end of the day, it comes down to what YOU prefer!

Does it feel better on your left? Does it feel better on your right?

It really doesn't matter as long as you wear it how you want too!

At the end of the day it's your watch, you can do whatever you want with it!
