I’ve only ever worn my watch on my right wrist, it’s just more comfortable for me. This is one of those stupid fucking “rules” that may have practical implications, but mostly serves to let people feel superior to those who’ve gotten it “wrong”.
But nice try, bro.
However, as I only own Quartz watches (swiss ones though!) it’s a moot point for me. Also, do you really find yourself needing to wind your watch constantly during the day? Isn’t it one of those “do before work and it lasts through the day things?” I was always under the impression that an automatic movement shouldn’t need to be wound all the time. If I am wrong, then mea culpa, but I still find it more comfortable on my right wrist and I’ve been wearing watches for 12 or so years, so there’s almost no possibility I could change (if I was so inclined).
Alright, guys, don’t feed the troll.
FWIW I can’t stand the “this guy looks bad for the following reasons…” style blog. It’s not just that I think people should wear what they want (though I do think that).
It’s really that half the time it’s just recycled blogosphere common speak (next time I read you always unbutton your bottom vest button I’ma cut someone), it’s that most of the time either
1. the advice is passed off as absolute truth (typically in an extremely negative, dickish manner)
2. The author (not just of NTB, several others are guilty too) concocts a completely new outfit then says “they should have changed their outfit in the following ways.” Which reeks of “I know better-ism!” Which, unless you can back it up with better WIWT pics, makes me think you’re full of shit. (Note: Even if you back it up with flawless pics daily, you probably still sound like a dick).
Couple these things with the fact that these are often tied with bloggers who start “I was jetsetting around to XYZ exotic locales and I saw some businessman in the airport wearing the wrong shoes, DON’T YOU GET HOW NONCHALANTLY WEALTHY I AM?!?!” and you have a recipe for douche-blog-itis.
But that’s just my opinion.
BOOM. Fistful lays down the law. Be nice, or be interesting. Nicetrybro fails at both.
