Multiple realities
(covers information from several alternate timelines)

A wristwatch was a timepiece that was worn on the wrist.

In 1953, Jimmy stole a wristwatch and offered it to Benny Russell. Benny warned Jimmy that he would get in trouble one day for his actions. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")

According to the novelization, the watch that Jimmy stole was a Timex.

In 1968, Gary Seven wore a Rolex GMT Master Pepsi. (TOS: "Assignment: Earth")[1]

Bernardo Calvera wore a wristwatch. (DS9: "Past Tense, Part I")

In 2254, a female crew member aboard the USS Enterprise was wearing a wristwatch while off duty. (TOS: "The Cage")

In the first scene from TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before", Kirk was scripted to be wearing a watch which he momentarily looked at. [2] However, no such watch appears in the final version of the scene. Kirk was again scripted to be wearing a wrist watch in the final draft script of TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver" (dated 3 May 1966), in the episode's final scene. However, this reference to a watch wasn't included in the second revised final draft of the installment's teleplay (dated 20 May 1966) and is not shown on screen.
In a scene from the first draft script of TOS: "The Enemy Within", a duplicate of Kirk at one point looked at a wristwatch worn by Janice Rand. In a memo to John D.F. Black (dated 23 May 1966), Robert Justman pondered, "Does she wear a Timex or an Ingersol [sic]?"
The second draft script for TOS: "The Man Trap" (then called "Damsel with a Dulcimer") included a scene in which Kirk advised someone called "Jim" to check his own wristwatch. In a memo of script notes Robert Justman sent John D.F. Black (on 2 June 1966), Justman remarked that he didn't think the line was necessary. In another memo of script notes, this one from Gene Roddenberry to episode writer George Clayton Johnson (also sent on 2 June 1966), Roddenberry advised, "We're not playing our people as wearing watches. But we can if you check with Robert J., give him time to have something appropriate and futuristic made up."

In 2263 of the alternate reality, Ben wore a wristwatch. (Star Trek Beyond)

In 2265, Lee Kelso wore a wristwatch while on duty at the helm. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before")
