That doesn't make sense, Wortfish. What also doesn't make sense is any religion-based explanation of a watch that is found on a beach. The only way to get the detailed explanation you want is to look for the manufacturer's mark on it, then look up what information is available on the internet, or in catalogues, or contact the manufacturers, if that des not give enough detail.

The watchmaker argument doesn't claim that God made the watch found on the heath. It claims that the watch was designed and made by a watchmaker.

It's not as simple as that, Wortfish:
Paley went on to argue that the complex structures of living things and the remarkable adaptations of plants and animals required an intelligent designer.

In other words, he was claiming that god(s) are required to explain us.
