In the 60s, 70s, and 80s the "kit" lens was a 50mm f: 1.7, 1.8, 1.9, or 2.0. The upgrade lens was the 1.4, the deluxe lens was 1.2. When at age 17 I got a brandy-new OM-2 I went for the 50/1.4. The lens just plain sucked any farther open than 2.8, and I now use 50mm/2.0 Nikkor H lenses from the 60s, which are useable wide open and just stunning at the other apertures.

Most modern watches are junk jewelry when compared to a decent RR watch anyway.
