Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 213: Watch at dw100.

Summary: The watch is old and broken, yet Professor Yana keeps it anyway.

The watch has always been with Professor Yana; it was with him when he was found as a child, and even after all these years he’s held onto it, though he can’t say why. It’s old, broken, completely useless, and yet, it’s all he has from before…

He’s never bothered to open it; why would he? There would be no point since it doesn’t work. It’s a keepsake, an ornament, nothing more. Well, perhaps a talisman or good luck charm, something of that nature. The case is attractive though.

They suit each other, two old relics whose time is past.
