So what does it mean in a dream? A watch in a dream, therefore, represents the 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.

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.
