My husband died on April 27, 1998. I had several incidents after his death where I definitely felt his presence. I even had a small moment where I smelled his scent.
Barry had a Rolex watch that I bought for him in the early 80's. He wore it faithfully and was wearing it when he died.
I kept the watch and planned on giving it to his son but his son left his wife and children and virtually removed himself from the rest of the family. Several years ago I met a wonderful man and I thought that it would be a wonderful idea to give him the Rolex as a Christmas gift. I had the watch worked on by a watch repair person and got it oiled and up and running. Bill knew that the watch was my late husbands and was OK with that.
I gave him the watch and he wore it day and night. After about a week the watch stopped running. These watches do not have batteries so that was not the solution. I took it back to the watch repairman and he said he couldn't figure it out because it was working fine and is in good condition.
This has now happened at least 8 times since then. Each time I take it back he can't figure it out. He has even worn the watch for days and nights on but can not replicate this situation. The weird thing is that each of the times that the watch stopped it has been at 3:00 am.
I think this was started by the television show Paranormal State. I have also heard that most people pass away in the wee hours of the morning. I have not been able to find any stats to back this up. Many people are reporting waking up at 3:00am for no reason. It is also called the witching hour.
I have 2 clocks that seem to have minds of their own. They run on a battery. One ran for many years on the same battery, much longer than I would have expected. When it started stopping, there was nothing I could to do to make it run. Fresh battery did not matter. Then it would start running on its own and run just fine for a while, sometimes more than a year. I started to notice that the clock stopped at significant times in my life. This is just an observation, but I do find it fascinating.
So watches that seem broken but when examined are just fine is normal for me. You might want to see what events are taking place at the time the watch stops.
