That's correct so far. However, every watch has to be anti-magnetic to 4.800 a/H otherwise it could not be sold as being a watch.
Read ISO 764. A stainless steel case watch and a carbon steel watch must have the identical am properties. It is that simple and makes it a NO.

Since I am planning to use carbon steel to create a watch for some reason.

So if I am not mistaken, it is a yes for me to make a watch with this material.

Plus, why use carbon steel, on a watch? Wrists sweat...and that means you have *salt* water touching the steel. A straight, non-stainless carbon steel would seem to be at high risk for rusting.

Second point...what advantage do you get with the carbon steel? Yeah, it can be harder than most stainless grades, but there's ways to get that in stainless alloys too, I believe.
