However, Sanchez Flores was appointed as Hornets' boss for the second time last week after one point from their opening four games of the season saw Javi Gracia sacked, roused the hosts for an impressive second-half fight back.
Arsenal gifted possession away inside their own box which played huge part in their own downfall, cleverly to pull out a goal of this golden opportunity before David Luiz upended Roberto Pereyra.
However, it is Watford who will feel they should even have gone onto win the game as Arsenal boss Unai Emery's inability to find a balance between his brilliant attack and shoddy defense continued.
Emery recalled Mesut Ozil to his starting line-up for the first time since he and Sead Kolasinac were the victims of a carjacking attack in July.
However, Watford have now conceded 10 goals in their opening five games to the campaign and were opened up far too easily to allow Aubameyang to open the scoring on 21 minutes.

They finally got the equaliser their second-half display deserved nine minutes from time when Pereyra was clipped by Luiz inside the box and the Argentine sent Leno the wrong way from the penalty spot.
Deulofeu sent another attempt inches wide and cleverely bold drive was diverted over by Luiz as wave upon wave of Watford attack continued.
But it was Abdoulaye Doucoure who squandered the best chance of all for a winner deep into stoppage time when he shot too close to Leno with just the German goalkeeper to beat to leave Watford still bottom of the Premier League table.
