Long-gone are the days of struggling to read the time, embarrassing yourself whenever someone asks. With a left-handed watch, you can wear your watch comfortably on your non-dominant hand and fire off the time without hesitation. Right-handed watches may seem to make up the vast majority of the watch market, but the following left-handed watches prove that there is an excellent selection for all you southpaws.
When in need of a new timepiece, consider these best left-handed watches.
Beyond build quality, wearers will be treated to a 60-second scale stopwatch, reading optimized mission timer, a strong sapphire crystal glass, and resistance to pressures of up to 3,280 ft. The diver’s bezel is built with a guard that ensures you won’t accidentally adjust the setting while non-screwable, flat push-buttons were utilized to be compatible with diver’s gloves.
Attached to a comfortable black wristband with attractive contrast stitching, the watch is also feature rich and includes a date window, crown and pushers on the left side for optimal left-handed use, and chronograph subdials. Not only is it an elegant and durable watch, the Invicta 3330 is also water resistant for up to 330 ft. The gold coloring pops against the black band and will look right at home on your wrist.
The black band is sleek but efficient, ensuring the watch remains fastened even with heavy use. The rubber bands and buckle closure keep it clasped in place despite how deep you dive with it, and with a resistance of up to 1,000ft, that’s peace of mind every diver would want. Finishing off the practical elegance of Citizen’s sports watch is a Japanese quartz movement that looks into an analog display.
Crafted from a flame-fusion crystal, black ion-plated stainless steel case, and Japanese mechanics, the Russian Diver is not only appealing to the eye, it’s undeniably durable. A 60-second subdial adds features to an others uncomplicated dial. The rose gold coloring of the watch’s skeleton dial contrasts nicely against the black and rose gold band and black and grey hand and hour markers.
A 45 mm stainless steel case is finished off with a synthetic-sapphire dial window, which should prevent scratches over the life of the watch. The analog display is easy-to-read with a grey numbered bezel and attractive black dial. The left-handed pusher only further solidifies this as a watch designed for all southpaws. While not labeled as a diver’s watch, it is capable of withstanding depths of up to 1,980ft.
The internal rotor is self-winding and bidirectional while the face of the watch features a small but visible date reading and elegant features like ivory numbering and hands. The design isn’t big on extra features, which help to keep the focus on what really matters.
Available in three different models – a blue disc, black and ivory disc, and black and white disc – the Tudor Pelagos left-handed watch will go with a great array of outfits.
The black disc and black hands are contrasted by red accents at the Arabic “3” and “8” marking. A durable plastic band will keep this watch in place while the overall design has been rated for water resistance at up to 330ft. The 50mm metal case is topped with plastic dial window rond off an easy-to-love design that will look good on any wrist.
The case is a 47 x 47.6mm stainless steel while the internal engine runs automatically with a 40 hour power reserve. Each component was sandblaster for a nicer finish and lends to a complete aesthetic that will surely draw attention. The glass face is a hardened, anti-reflective mineral glass that will prevent scratching and prolong the life of this left-handed timepiece.
The M2/01 is NFC enabled and can be connected to the SEVENFRIDAY Android app, further enhancing it as more than just your basic watch.
For the price tag, however, you do get a reliable watch that’s capable of withstanding depths of up to 4,000ft and is equipped with a chronometer, helium escape valve, bidirectional rotating bezel, titanium bracelet, titanium case, and screw-in crown. The crystal is a scratch-resistant sapphire that’s also anti-reflective.
Adding to the cost of the PLOPROF 1200M is an 18K Sedna gold touch to the case that shines against the titanium build and blue disc.
The off-white face contrasts the brown leather band for an elegant look that is great for everyday wear or for special occasions.
Despite being a digital device, the S3 is water resistant up to 164ft. Definitely not a diver’s watch, but it will withstand a shallow swim or shower. The clock display can be digital or analog and can also display a barometric altimeter, a heart rate sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, and is all contained within a durable sapphire crystal casing.
The Calibre 11 offers two counters – one at 3 o’clock and one at 9 o’clock, each made of a silver opalin second hand and black lacquered minute hand. For easy reading, the date is located at the 6 o’clock hour. With a water resistance of up to 328ft, it may not be ideal for most divers, but it is well-suited for everyday wear.
Other design features that separated the Calbre 11 from many other left-handed watches is the alternate finishing steel screwed sapphire case, steel shaped push buttons at 4 and 2 o’clock, and a polished steel standard crown found at 9 o’clock.
The design is intentional as the X-Wind is designed for pilots, who need a face that can be read quickly. The Khaki X-Wind features the world’s first drift-angle calculator, which allows pilots to calculate and record crosswinds with ease.
For the average wearer, though, the X-Wind is a sleek and durable design with a brown leather strap for added appeal.
Featuring hand-wound mechanics, the 1950 has a three-day power reserve and runs on on a P.3000 calibre. The anti-shock will keep this left-handed watch running for the long haul while the near 330ft water resistance protects it in the shower or on a swim.
Made from a stainless steel case, the Chronicle SS is water resistant for up to 330ft, which works for recreational swimming or snorkeling. All-in-all, however, this is the kind of watch you wear as part of a classy outfit and maybe not one you’d want to bring to the beach.
