Is "clear-watered" an adjective like "soft-petalled"?
Is it right to say, "The clear-watered pond was serene to look at"

It's understandable, but rather unusual. As noted in comments, there is interference in understanding between the intended adjective meaning, and a particple "watered" (from the verb "to water"). It seems to be a rather rare construction. As other comments show, there is use of "clear watered" (both with and without a hyphen). So if this works for you poetically, then you can use it.
Perhaps you do not need to mention "water" at all. Ponds are assumed to be filled with water, so you don't need to mention it. Would "The crystal clear pond was serene to look at" work (the meter is similar but not exactly the same)
