Rather sad, slightly mad 3 wheel van toting cat doting ol' timer...
Years ago I used two welding rods bent into L shape to find water for an outside pump to water my grass. It did work, went down about 15 feet and drilled the hole by hand (I was much younger and in good shape then). I'd die of thirst now if I had to do that again.
Part of me feels so weird using a $10 gadget from China on a $6k watch. Is the worst that can happen that the blue box simply stops working? Or can the watch be damaged in any way from a demagnetizer?

Hello if it’s one of the little blue ones I have de magnetised about 20 watches in the UK all have been fine it is 240v 50 htz in UK in the State’s it’s 120v 60 htz so roughly half as powerful in the US so I have not had a problem but none of my watches are more than £200 value it’s up to you
If you look on the front label it probably states 120 / 230v the is no electronic switching inside just a simple transformer which it looks like the use one side of the coil yes I had to take it apart just like my watches
Seriously, this is quite safe. Remember the old TVs or Computer screens that used tubes? Would you be afraid to approach such screen with a watch? In theory, a watch can become more magnetized. A very reversible process. This is quite safe. All this blue box has inside a small coil that creates a magnetic field. That is all. Btw, if you still have such a TV or screen it can be used to demagnetize a watch. Some even have the Degauss mode that is used to removed ghost images from the screen. Same thing. And 10 $ box, as mentioned, mot strong enough when using with 110 volts and does not materially change anything for a watch.... you may need to use it many times in order to see a result
