7 Questions about how to wear your watch?

Today we’ve brought you 7 questions about how to wear your watch.

Which wrist should you wear your watch on?

When it comes to wearing a watch, there’s no definitive answer to which wrist a male should wear it on. Conventionally, many opt for their non-dominant (mostly Left) wrist for practicality and comfort, as this hand has to be used less, so if you are right-handed wear your watch on left one. This choice is often influenced by tradition and ease of use. However, there are no strict rules governing how to wear your watch, and on which hand. Some individuals prefer the left wrist regardless of dominance, aligning with long-standing customs. Ultimately, the best choice is the one that feels most comfortable and functional for the wearer.

Does the gender matter?

The choice of which wrist to wear a watch on is not typically gender-specific. Both males and females can choose to wear their watches on either wrist based on personal preference, comfort, and practicality. There are no inherent differences in this aspect based on gender. The same rules apply as stated above, whether you are a male or female.

How to measure my wrist for a watch?

To measure your wrist for a watch, you’ll need a flexible measuring tape or a piece of string and a ruler. Follow these steps:

1. Wrap the measuring tape around your wrist at the point where you would normally wear a watch. Make sure the tape is snug but not too tight.

2. Take note of the measurement where the end of the tape meets the rest of the tape or mark the point where the string overlaps itself.

3. If you’re using a piece of string, lay it flat and measure the length with a ruler.

4. Record the measurement in inches or centimeters.

This measurement will give you an idea of the size of watch that will fit comfortably on your wrist.

What does your watch brand say about you?

While generalizations about personality based on watch brands exist, they’re not definitive. Here’s a broad overview:


Often associated with success, luxury, and status. Wearing a Rolex may suggest a preference for timeless elegance and a taste for high-quality craftsmanship.


Known for its connection to space exploration and precision timekeeping. Wearing an Omega may indicate an appreciation for innovation, adventure, and attention to detail.

Tag HeuerOften is associated with motorsports and a dynamic lifestyle. Wearing a Tag Heuer may suggest a passion for speed, performance, and a modern, sporty aesthetic.


Recognized for its reliability, affordability, and versatility. Wearing a Seiko may indicate a practical, value-conscious approach to style and a preference for quality craftsmanship without the luxury price tag.


 Known for its accessibility, durability, and classic designs. Wearing a Timex may suggest a preference for functionality, reliability, and timeless simplicity.

Ultimately I would say, choose a watch that resonates with your own tastes and lifestyle rather than being defined by perceived stereotypes.

Why does my wristwatch stop when I do not wear it?

If your wristwatch stops when you do not wear it, there’s a good chance it’s a mechanical watch. Unlike quartz watches that rely on batteries for power, mechanical watches are driven by a complex system of gears and springs. One key component of a mechanical watch is its mainspring, which stores energy when wound and gradually releases it to power the watch’s movement.

When you wear a mechanical watch, the natural motion of your wrist helps keep the watch wound by keeping the mainspring tensioned. However, if the watch is left unworn for an extended period, the mainspring can lose its tension, causing the watch to stop. So wear your watch your watch regularly to ensure it stays powered and running accurately.

Why does my wristwatch tick really loud?

Some wristwatches tick loudly due to the movement mechanism inside the watch. Specifically, watches with mechanical movements, especially those with manual winding or automatic movements, may produce audible ticking sounds as the gears and escapement components interact with each other. The sound can vary based on factors such as the design of the movement, the materials used, and the level of precision in manufacturing.

In some cases, the ticking noise may also be more noticeable if the watch has a thinner case or lacks sufficient soundproofing materials. Variations in individual watches and the quality of their assembly can influence the volume of the ticking sound it produces.

By the way, some people may find the ticking noise charming or nostalgic, others may prefer watches with quieter movements or opt for watches with quartz movements, which typically produce less audible ticking.
