Dream dictionary meaning watch


The creation of watches, a way to make time management portable, revolutionized every aspect of human life.

Being able to have a portable timekeeper allowed us to closely monitor the passage of time. A watch in a dream therefore represents structure, self-containment, and the passage of time. On an emotional level, a watch may signify an over reliance on rules and regulations in your approach to life or a lack of spontaneity. Alternately, it signifies order and precision particularly amidst chaos.


Because the purpose of a watch is to mark the passage of time, any dream of a watch will reference time as well. That said, dreaming of a watch has more to do with the way that you manage time than the passage of time itself. Wearing a watch in a dream may indicate that you fear that time is running out on some endeavor or desire or dream that you wish to accomplish. You may need to become bolder in your pursuit of your goal. On an emotional level, you are watching the clock or biding your time, afraid of taking risks.


In this dream you may have...

  • An antique watch.
  • A collectible themed watch.
  • A rare or priceless watch.
  • A watch of great sentimental value.
  • Needed a new watch.
  • Found a watch.
  • Broken a watch.
  • Lost your watch
  • Stolen a watch.
  • Possessed a watch belonging to another person.
  • Noticed that your watch had stopped.

Detailed dream meaning...

Dreams of a broken watch, losing your watch or a stopped watch imply that you have lost track of the events in your life. On a practical level, this can refer to your having poor time management skills and needing to reevaluate your progress in your endeavors. On an emotional level, this can indicate that your personal growth has come to a standstill and you need to overcome some emotional barrier.



Dreaming of an antique watch or a watch that was given to you by an ancestor indicates that you have issues in your past that it is time to address. These issues may have to do with questions of how to transition from the person that you used to be to whom you would like to become. Similarly, dreaming of a collectible watch with a theme from your childhood may signify either  that you would like to return to a happier more simple time and are avoiding growing up in the present moment or that you have issues with your past and it is time to grow up. To dream of a watch owned by an acquaintance, friend or stranger indicates that you feel as though your time is not your own to control and you have too many obligations. Stealing a watch that belongs to someone else indicates that you desire to live someone else's life or feel as though you are living an inauthentic life.


Possessing a watch of sentimental or monetary value signifies that you are at a point in your life where time is precious to you and you enjoy your moments with those who are nearest and dearest to you. You may find that this is a time of great prosperity or reward for you.

Using a stop watch, timing someone or being timed in a dream implies a sense of urgency in accomplishing a task or resolving an issue in a relationship. You may have hurdles to clear in your race against time. Dreams of a specific number, time or pattern of repeating numbers are pointing your attention to a specific area in your life which requires your attention.



This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life...


  • Biological clock
  • Retirement, promotion, newly hired
  • Death of a loved one
  • Being overscheduled


Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of a watch…


Harried. Controlled. Organized. Lost. Disoriented. Dutiful. Triumphant. Victorious. Hassled. Harassed. Devoted. Relentless. Steady. Persistent.
