The general class rule about wristwatches is, the more "scientific," technological, and space-age, the lower. Likewise with the more "information" the watch is supposed to convey, like the time of day in Kuala Lumpur, the number of days elapsed in the year so far, or the current sign of the zodiac.

The other upper-class watch is the cheapest and simplest Timex, worn with a grosgrain ribbon strap, changed often: black ones for formal wear are amusing.
