This is from Advanced Title Search, selecting to see only titles rated, but Exclude those in the Watchlist.
You can access ATS from nearly every IMDb page. Just drop down the search options:

Ps: If you could use prints, because I'm brazilian so I don't speak english so well.

Thanks for the screenshot.
Perhaps your situation is this instead:
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?my_ratings=exclude&lists=watchlist

If not, are your ratings and your Watchlist public?
I'd like to do the searches on your data instead of my own.
To make them public:
Edit the Watchlist:


Use 3-dot button on Your Ratings:

then Settings > Privacy (as above):

Once you've done that, post the URL for Your Ratings and Watchlist, and I'll take a look.

This is very strange. You indeed have one more title in Your Ratings than in Watchlist, so my first link should have worked. And there is no way for me to sort them both in the same order. Nor can I Export Your Ratings (although I can Export your Watchlist.) If I could export both, I would compare the lists in a spreadsheet program. 

Here's what you can do without using a spreadsheet: compare these 2 results:
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?my_ratings=restrict&view=simple&sort=alpha,asc&count=100
(that should show 1345 titles)
against
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?lists=watchlist&view=simple&sort=alpha,asc&count=100
(this should show 1344 titles)

I would check the top of each page to see if they match, and if not, go back a page to find where they differ.

Cinephile makes an excellent point with the adult titles. Here's the adaptation for my link above:
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?my_ratings=restrict&adult=include&view=simple&sort=alpha,asc&count=100
If this shows 1345 titles, you should be able to find the 1 here:
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?genres=adult&my_ratings=restrict&adult=include&view=simple&sort=alpha,asc&count=100

I've already tried this to, and no show nothing new. In the first link has only 1.344 titles, and in the second link has no result at all.

Looking at your Exports (thank you!), I see only 1344 ratings records.
Your Watchlist has a gap at position 620 (which you'd only see in Edit mode or in an Export), and a total of 1344 titles. (The gap is a separate issue, and I can find a GS thread to report that if you like.)

Doing the vlookup in both directions, all titles in the Ratings Export is on the Watchlist export, and vice versa. Here's the link to the comparisons: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oKFxsN_3RwDx-T8dKxYZ6olrpH_966YxR3LD92y4pr8/edit?usp=sharing

So the question boils down to this: why does Your Ratings page say you have 1345 titles rated when it only Exports 1344? (I just exported my own ratings, and got the same number as on the IMDb view.)  

So I paged all the way down to the end of your Ratings, and found it only displays 1344:

That's a bug for a staffer to report. (I'm not an employee of IMDb.)

I look in the edit mode and as you told, the gap is righ here in the 620.
If you could please find a GS thread to report this issue of the gap. I would really appreciate that.

The solution that bderoes provided is totally valid, 

1- I would go on Watchlist and sort them by "Your Rating"

2-Then the movies that you haven't rated will show up at the end of the list, 

3- There is a button just beside the "Sort By" that allows you to revert the list order if you click that button the movies that you haven't will show up at the top of your watchlist.

cinephile,
I tried your suggestion, but reversing the sort does not put unrated titles at the top. In either direction, they're shown AFTER rated titles.

You have rated 1345 titles.
You have 1344 titles in your watchlist.

So if you restrict by titles that you have seen and then exclude your watchlist you should come to the result,

To make sure that it is not a glitch, I suggest that you rate a test title and https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?my_ratings=restrict&lists=%21watchlist

Normally, 2 titles should show up (because you have rated a test title), but if only the one that you rated as a test shows up then, It might be a glitch.

It might be possible that the title that you haven't put in your watchlist is an adult title, in that case, you have to select "Include" below "Adult Titles".

The thing is, around 620 in the watchlist the number are diferent above, because starts in the second line but starts from number 1 in front. But in the 621 line the number that should appear in front of the line is 620 as above are always one number down the number of the line. But in line 621 the number ate the beggining of the line is 621. And all the numbers following are the same of the line they are.
So the tittle must be there, but he didn't.

No, the gap at 620 is this issue, I'm sure:

Hi Gabriel,

Thank you for your patience. I'm happy to share that I've identified the issue and have forwarded this information over to our engineering team.

That means the problem is already solved or that the engineering team will resolve it?

They will resolve "it".
Hopefully they read my post about there being only 1344 ratings, not 1345.

Hi Gabriel,

I see that currently you should have 1345 titles for both your ratings and Watchlist. Can you confirm if the number of ratings and Watchlist are now reflecting accurately?

Yes, I've just saw that now both lists are with the same number of titles.
Thank you very much for helping me out with this problem.
