It is indeed possible to notice many changes in style if you pick a
wide enough range of time.
I think however if you take a spot observation of popular watches
available for sale today vs a spot observation of popular watches
available for sale in say 1925, I think you will see popular themes
copied over and over within each time frame. Silvered decorated dials
became popular, as did the deco style numerals in the late 1920's and
every watch company made 17 jewel 12 size pocket watches with some
variation on those themes. Although the design themes of todays
watches are certainly different from those of 75 years ago, there is a
remarkable similarity within the offerings of today's watch makers.
