    Watches + litterature?

    This may seem like an odd question. The words found in the title are two things I adore and I'm curious whether there are watches that are inspired by, related to, have a story with an author or book etc.

    In general - what comes to mind when these two words are brought together? Is it even commensurable?

    What I am looking for is a watch inspired by litterature, by any way possible. I'm sorry if the question is stupid.

    While i find Your answer funny, I'm not thinking something necessarily having a motive of some literal figure. But rather the connection - for example a story involving an author and a watch or whatever.

    Glad you found it funny, I am aware that wasn't quite what you had in mind. Apologies, I couldn't resist

    Look up Ian Fleming/James Bond's Rolex 1016. I am not well versed in the details, but I believe the author rather famously gave his character the same watch that he had owned himself. That's probably the only example I can think of, if that is indeed even the sort of thing you are looking for.

    A Royal Australian Air Force JLC military (Mark XI?) is featured prominently in a William Gibson novel, 'All Tomorrow's Parties'.

    I think Breguet is referenced in a few novels, like War and Peace and Eugene Onegin. According to the Breguet website, Alexander Pushkin was a client.

    Two for Gibson. Nice.

    However Cayce's watch was a steriziled Korean knockoff of a GShock.

    DOXA featured prominently in Clive Cussler's work is an easy one.
