Will airport detectors damage automatic and quartz watches?

If so, will the damage be temporary or permanent? I've heard arguments from both sides, but it will be best for someone knowledgeable in the subject to clarify this matter :)

I am certainly not knowledgeable in this area, but I am experienced. I have taken both mechanical and quartz watches through airport detectors many times and have never had any problems with any of the watches.
My watches have passed through both types of people scanners while on my wrist, and through the X-ray scanners in my carry-on. I have had no issues with any of my watches.
