See: Anyone who is not blind can see. So, to see means to perceive anything in general. Seeing is unintentional. It is not your intention to see something. You see because you can perceive that with your eyes. You have the ability. e.g.: I saw the man climbing the tree. When you reach the roundabout, you will see a park on the left. Look: When we see something intentionally, we look at it. So we look at something with a reason, with an intention. "look" has the central idea of paying attention to something or somebody. e.g.: look at the plane in the sky. Can you see? Why are you looking at me like this? As people are able to see, they can see anything which comes in their sight. But when they want to pay attention to something or someone; or when we want them to pay their attention to something or someone, we say "look at the picture, the man, the bird, etc. Watch: when we look at something attentively that is moving, as if we are searching for something, we actually "watch" it. To watch something means to look at it moving with an intention to do so. e.g.: I wanted to see a movie. I am happy I am watching it. Did you see the match? "yes", I watched the whole match. So when we see something, we keep it under our careful observation.
