I have been keeping track of all the movies I've been watching as well as the date I watched them on a note on my phone.  I lost all my notes and while I obviously can look at my Watchlist to see all the titles, I can't figure out how to see the exact date I added the title.

You cannot directly see the date that you added a title to your Watchlist. However, you can export your Watchlist and view it in Excel or Open Office to see this information.

Towards the bottom of the page there is the link "Export this list". Clicking on this link creates a Comma Separated Variable (CSV) formatted file. This file contains these columns of data:

position - Position in the list
const - Constant of the form tt1234567
created - Date title added to Watchlist
modified - For a Watchlist this is the same as the created date
description - Description field
Title - Title of film or other media
Title type
Directors
You rated - Your rating
IMDb Rating - Average rating on IMDb
Runtime (mins)
Year
Genres
Num. Votes
Release Date (month/day/year)
URL - Link to title

You can use the create or modified field to determine when you added a title to your watch list.

Example:
position - 7
const - tt1049413
created - Thu May  3 07:29:21 2012
modified - Thu May  3 07:29:21 2012
