it's silver and gold

My wedding band is plain and made of yellow gold. My watch is stainless steel. I wear both on my left side. I haven't worn my watch since the wedding because I'm (perhaps unduly) bothered by the clash between the gold ring + silver watch.

I've tried to wear the watch on my right arm, but that doesn't work for me. Although I am not particularly vain or stylish, I work in a service profession (I'm a lawyer who's occasionally in court) where I need to portray a semi-together appearance, and I'm concerned that the silver/gold clash looks tacky or unfinished.
Would you notice something like my unmatched watch/ring? Would that combination lead you to any assumptions about the wearer? I'm male, mid-30s if that's of assistance.
