People in the [[wizarding world]] are seen wearing '''pocket watches'''. The reason for which maybe that the objects used by [[Wizardkind|wizards and witches]] (as quills, oil lamps, candles, ect.) are not as modern as objects used by [[Muggle]]s. Pocket watches are one of which, which have not been as widely used as the pre-WWI era. Also, in the wizarding world, one is given a watch when they turn of age. Dumbledore, for instance, would have turned 17 when pocket watches were still in style. There is a [[Transfiguration]] [[spell]] capable of turning a [[Human to pocket watch|human into a pocket watch]]. Known wizards and witches to own pocket watches include:
*[[Dedalus Diggle]], who owned [[Dedalus Diggle's pocket watch|a fairly large one]] that shouted at him to "''Hurry up''" when he was late.
*[[Rubeus Hagrid]], whose small gold one was greatly dwarfed in his trash-bin-lid-sized hand.
*[[Albus Dumbledore]], [[Albus Dumbledore's pocket watch|whose had twelve hands, with twelve planets instead of numbers]].
*[[Horace Slughorn]], who wears a silver watch on a double-albert chain.
*[[Sirius Black]], who wears [[Sirius Black's pocket watch|a silver one on a double-albert]] as well. He wears this on a waistcoat, after he moves into [[12 Grimmauld Place]]. It is unknown if it was with his other possessions there, but as he probably was given it when he came of age, it is likely.
*[[Bartemius Crouch Jr.|Barty Crouch Jr.]], who wears [[Bartemius Crouch Jr.'s pocket watch|a gold pocket watch on a single-albert]], prior to his sentence in [[Azkaban]].
*[[Fabian Prewett]], who wears [[Fabian Prewett's watch|one that was dented on the back over the years]]. It was given to [[Harry Potter]].
*[[Yaxley]], who wears [[Yaxley's pocket watch|a golden pocketwatch]].
*[[Ronald Weasley]], who wears something like Harry's.
*[[Mundungus Fletcher]], who wears a silver one on a waistcoat.
==Behind the scenes==
*It is not specified what type of watch [[Harry Potter]] was given when he turned of age. However, due to the fact that it was dented on the back, it was probally indeed a pocket watch, as the back of a wristwatch is against the wrist when in use. In this case, [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] also has a pocket watch, as Harry's was "like what Ron got."
*In the film adaptations of ''[[Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (film)|Prisoner of Azkaban]]'', and ''[[Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (film)|Goblet of Fire]]'', [[Hermione Granger]], in some scenes, in shown wearing a black wristwatch on her right arm. Why she chose this over a pocket watch is unknown.
*In the [[Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (film)|film adaptation]] of ''[[Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire]]'', [[Cedric Diggory]], in some scenes, is shown wearing a brown wristwatch, on his left arm during the Second Task of the [[Triwizard Tournament]], and on his right arm when he and [[Harry Potter]] are [[Portkey|transported]] to the [[Little Hangleton]] [[Little Hangleton graveyard|Graveyard]] mere moments before he is [[Killing Curse|murdered]] by [[Peter Pettigrew]] on [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]'s orders.
*On J.K. Rowling's site, Dumbledore's watch has bright blue lightning like crackles, the face glows turquoise blue and emits a flash of white light. <ref></ref>
