His giant bright blue plasticky watch strap and beaded bracelet on the other wrist are a little jarring and unprofessional.  You're not training for a triathlon here; you're receiving representatives and wearing a suit. 

What I find weird is that heís wearing it on his right wrist - he does not appear to be left handed.

I am right handed, but always wore my watch on my right wrist. There was never any doubt that it had to be that way. I don't have a wrist watch anymore, I use my mobile.

I would never wear my watch on my dominant hand.  It would get too banged up, and most people wear it on the opposite wrist for that reason.

I understand completely. I didn't have problems in that aspect, though. Maybe I was just lucky. My watches were always small, maybe that explains it.

Iím right handed and Iíd never wear my watch on my right wrist. It just feels wrong.   That said, I never considered why I feel that way.

I am also right-handed and when I wear the watch (small) it is on the right. Always. I have tried on the left as an experiment and it feels strange and wrong.

I think that a job in a jewelry store when I was younger made me think about these things.  Same thing for the practice in a lot of the world of wearing an engagement ring on the left hand - some legend says that there is a vein straight to the heart on that finger, but really itís the non-dominant hand for most people and there is less chance of damage or getting it caught on something.

If I remember it correct there was apparently also a difference at which hand is used for the wedding ring between Catholic and Protestant couples. At least in the Netherlands.

Thatís my understanding too Princi! 

At first it was faith or social custom, but I believe once diamond solitaires became so pervasive (early-mid 20th century) people wore them on their left hand because they catch on absolutely everything.  Especially those high Tiffany settings. My grandmother had one of those ďmiracleĒ settings, where small diamonds are nestled in a square metal frame that has a white gold or silver base to make them look like larger.  The edges on that thing are sharp.

Interesting mural behind him!  I initially thought it was a Banksy portrait of GH Henri of Luxembourg on the left! Then I realized that made no sense.

Oh wow, that is the ship that is owned by the Hurtigruten and it's possible to book Arctic and Antarctic tours on the Nansen. Glad Haakon showed up for the dedication. How I'd love to take a cruise on the ship!
