Of course it's a hit and miss.
I am mostly referring to this people who walk off of the plane in some of the countries already mentioned with their gold watch/chain/waving their phone around and not paying attention to their surroundings.
Foreigners can get sized up as soon as they land at the airport. As soon as they jump into a taxi. As soon as they check into a hotel.
I have never had an issue. I don;t carry a wallet when I travel(I leave it at the hotel) because I don;t need many of the items inside. I don;t even carry my phone(leave at hotel) because I like to "detach" and enjoy/take in the country/city I am in vs surfing the web.
I do wear a Citizen aviator watch that I have had for appr 25 years on a rubber strap as it is durable and shows multiple time zones.
Like I said, I have never had a problem.
