Watch the Watch...band

I thought I saw something a bit odd in this photograph from Friday's Maariv newspaper of Benjamin Netanyahu:



Then I spotted it:



First off, Bibi is lefthanded.

How many people do you know who write lefthanded and wear their watches on that same hand?

Second, the band.

I would have thought a metal band, either silver of gold, plated or not.

But material (leather?). Is that stylish today?

Also, the band seems rather loose.

Perhaps I've missed your point but can you find a single photo of Netanyahu with a watch on his right wrist? For comparison; http://www.daylife.com/photo/09rSdSU2L28On

People who are ambidextrous sometimes wear their watches on the "wrong" wrist.

When my watch has a band (and isn't simply stuffed in my pocket), I wear it on the wrist of the hand I use for writing. Mostly, I do so to protect the watch, since I'm hyper-protective of that hand, and, in the past, while working a job with heavy lifting, I broke a few watches on the other arm (one hand for finesse, one for strength).

I know a few other people who wear theirs on the "wrong" wrist just to mess with people's minds. But that's just mean.

And don't like the way metal bands pinch, so I use leather.

I'm left handed and wear my watch on my left wrist.
