    In July, 500 watches should be produced.

    Explanation:

    The production requirement in a certain month should be such that it meets the remaining sales requirements for that month after accounting for sales that will be covered by the opening inventory and considering the budgeted sales for the next month and producing enough closing inventory as to meet the policy requirement of 50% of next month's sales.

    The closing inventory required for July is,

    Closing Inventory - July = 50% of August budgeted sales

    Closing Inventory - July = 0.5 * 600 = 300 units

    The production requirement for the period can be calculated as,

    Production = Closing Inventory + Sales - Opening Inventory

    Production = 300 + 400 - 200

    Production = 500 units
