Which wrist Watch?

I'm right-handed, and my watch feels more comfortable on my right wrist, but I've heard that I should wear it on my left wrist so the watch or the movement doesn't get damaged. Does it matter?

I've heard that, too, but I don't think that's the whole story. Seems to me we've historically worn watches on our left wrists because they're easier to wind with our dominant right hands. This is, of course, irrelevant if one's watch is automatic. Or if it's quartz, driven by battery. Or if one is left-handed, in which case it's whatever the hell makes him most comfortable. It's also worth noting that a lot of watchmakers — Seiko, Panerai, and TAG Heuer among them — make lefts, or watches made with the movement reversed so the crown is placed at the nine-o'clock position instead of the normal three o'clock. I still wouldn't advise wearing it on the basketball court.
