When you see a pocket watch in a dream, that can have multiple meanings. The first is that you overslept or that you have a bad sense of timing. You should probably organize yourself better so that you wouldn’t be late for important meetings all the time. Also, a pocket watch can suggest that you often do everyday chores half-ass and that you can’t wait to finish work and go home.
To buy a pocket watch
Dreaming of buying a pocket watch means that you constantly have the need to be unique and different from others. You have an unusual style not because you enjoy it, but because you want people to notice you. Other people will think that you are insecure as long as you don’t do things honestly. When you finally realize what makes you special, you will not have the need to stand out using your physical appearance.
To sell a pocket watch
If you are dreaming of selling a pocket watch, it means that you will have to sacrifice something valuable in your life. That sacrifice will be the result of bad finances or big life changes. You might have to sell something that you inherited, or you will accept a business offer to work abroad because of better earnings. When it comes to the latter, being away from your friends and family will be hard on you, but you will not have a choice.
To receive a pocket watch as a gift
Dreaming of getting a pocket watch from someone means that a person you don’t like will stalk you. You will meet someone who will show feelings for you right away and admit that they want to be with you. You will try to nicely explain to them that you are not interested, out of courtesy, but that will not bring wanted results. You will have to be firm in the end or even be a little rude or unpleasant. You will feel bad for hurting them, but you believe that it is better to act like that than to give them false hope.
To bestow a pocket watch to someone
When you are dreaming of bestowing a pocket watch to a stranger, it means that you probably can’t forgive yourself for the mistakes from the past. You are constantly going back to it, so you miss the opportunities to make progress. It is time to give yourself a second chance because you have deserved it despite the sins from the past.
If you dream of bestowing a pocket watch to someone you know well, it means that they will confide a secret in you. They think of you as a loyal friend, so they will tell you something that they have been quiet about for a long time. You will have to try really hard not to talk about it with other people since you will promise not to tell anyone.
To find a pocket watch
This dream means that you will meet an influential person who can help you find a job or make progress in your career. You will make sure to gain their trust, but you will have to be careful so that they don’t get the impression that you just want to take advantage of them. Find a way to make everything seem subtle, or your plan could fail.
To lose a pocket watch
If you are dreaming of losing a pocket watch, that is a warning to watch out who you are doing business with. Someone might try to take advantage of your trust and persuade you to do something that is not in accordance with the law. Think well about risky investments and jobs that seem profitable because they could bring you more harm than good.
To steal a pocket watch
When you are dreaming of stealing someone’s pocket watch, that symbolizes envy. There is someone near you who has a life that you have always wanted, so instead of seeing them as a role model, you feel jealous. You are probably not satisfied with your business or love life, which is where those negative feelings come from. If you truly want something, there is probably a way to get it.
Dreaming of someone stealing your pocket watch means that you are stressed. You can’t organize yourself, and your days are not long enough to do everything you have planned. You often can’t finish all of your obligations because of that. Try to make a realistic plan and stick to it.
To break a pocket watch
If you are dreaming of breaking a pocket watch, it means that you will be disappointed because you will have to postpone a trip, or you will miss a family gathering because of work. Considering that you have been looking forward to it for a long time, you will have a hard time when you realize that your obligations will not let you enjoy it. However, you can’t lose hope and motivation. If you put in an effort, you will succeed in your intentions next time without a doubt.
To repair a pocket watch
When you are dreaming of repairing a pocket watch, it means that you will face a difficult task. You will take a serious project on yourself without knowing how to finish it the most efficiently and quickly. Ask for advice from someone who has more experience than you, and don’t be afraid to ask other people to help you.
To throw a pocket watch away
If you are dreaming of throwing a pocket watch away, that usually symbolizes your need to cut someone out of your life. That person probably affects your mood badly with their negativity. You are probably tired of listening to them complain and feel sorry for themselves, so you will distance yourself from such people. That will affect your mental state positively.
A gold pocket watch
A dream in which you see or have a gold pocket watch on has a positive meaning because it predicts wealth. You will become rich in no time, thanks to your hidden talents. If you are at the beginning of your career, or you have recently started a private business, you will have to work a lot to achieve the things you want. You can’t lose hope and patience or give up on your dreams. They will become your biggest motivation to work and put in even more effort in everything you do.
A silver pocket watch
If you see a silver pocket watch in a dream, it means that you feel like you are not young anymore. You lack energy, and you believe that you are too old for big decisions or difficult tasks. Even though this will seem weird to you, a lot of challenges still expect you in life, so you need to find the motivation to deal with them. You should understand that everything is a matter of perspective. You can never be too old for some things.
Meanings of dreams can be a lot simpler. If you have recently seen a pocket watch in person or on TV, that has made an impression on you. The same applies to the collection of pocket watches if you have one.
