Somewhere among the infinite universes there's a world where a marketing guru gave our Breitling watches the name ClickyTimerWatch Company and called the Rolex company Mr. Cyclops.
There's a planet on which humans evolved the ability to always know what time it is, and watches were never invented.
In some distant, unknown, and very alien world in that alternate universe is a planet on which watch complications are illegal. Watches can only display the time.
In one universe, nobody over 16 would dare be caught wearing a watch, because it's embarrassing. On that world's sister planet, only people over 70 wear watches.
Due to uneven and changing rock densities throughout, another alternate universe's planet has wildly variable and fluctuating gravity, so no watch can ever be more accurate than to within 10 minutes a day.
There's a world where you're given a watch by your parents at birth, and, by tradition, that is the only watch you will ever wear.
A world where button batteries were never invented, so quartz watches have to be powered by external batteries.
On some far away planet in a strange universe, quartz watches won the Quartz Revolution.
There's a world in which there are no deployment clasps, no fold-over buckles, no familiar straps. Instead, watch bands are secured with something that's akin to our shoelaces.
Or even worse, a world where James Bond wore this:
