Ⅰ. Wrist watch suppliers discuss the reasons for wearing a watch on the left hand


1. Automatic stainless steel watches became ubiquitous portable timekeepers. Most of the time, the automatic stainless steel watch is worn on the left wrist. But most people don't know the reasons.


2. Many people think it is based on the wearer's dominant hand and writing style. And those who wear the watch on their right hand are usually left-handed.


3. According to research, 10 percent of the world's people are left-handed. It is common for the left-handed to be forced to write with their right hand once they start school, and many teachers in China do the same. As a result, some people can write with both left and right hands. There are many reasons for this, including a cultural bias against the left-handed. And many appliances and tools are designed with the default assumption that the right hand is dominant. Because minority rules majority, most people are right-handed.


4. And writing is also part of the reason because the writing tradition and given form are from left to right. Whether writing a composition or filling in information and so on, it is harder for a left-handed person.


5. So, if you write with your right hand, your left wrist is the natural place to protect your watch from harm. That is one of the reasons for watches supplier to make the decision.


6. Considering that 90% of people are right-handed, so it makes sense that watches have always been designed to fit the left hand. Of course, there are still people who are used to wearing a watch on their right wrist. The command module astronaut Michael Collins of Apollo 11 is left-handed, and his watch was always worn on his right wrist.


Ⅱ. Why do wrist watch suppliers say there is a trend towards wearing a watch on your right hand?


1. The crucial reason is that there are fewer people who write. Most of our writing is indeed done by typing on our phone or computer. Handwriting has largely given way to typing, which means we've reduced our hand movements to finger movements. So if there is no handwriting, much of the motivation to wear the watch on the left wrist disappears.


2. Maybe one day most of the watches are for the right hands and it becomes an aberration if you wear a watch on the left hand. But who knows?


3. In fact, there are already some watches designed for the left-handed on the market, which may become more popular in the future.
