IMO Watchmen is hugely overrated. OK, it was ahead of its time, there are several well created characters and Moore uses masterfully his typical simple tricks of comic storytelling. But under all the art, the story, plot and basic concept are nothing special. Just a step more realistic superhero universe - something that has since been done plenty of times, occasionally even better.
It was influential because it was a success, rather than being such remarkable masterpiece some claim. There are number of Moore's works that are better than Watchmen, starting with Halo Jones and V for Vendetta.
