Has anyone ever seen a clock/watch in their dreams?
I came across something online that claims that you can't but I'm sure I have seen one before.

To test for lucid dream states, I check my watch and then look at it again. When looking at my watch in a dream, it'll either change on the second glance or the first glance will be incomprehensible nonsense and alien-like symbols. Sometimes I'm not aware enough to realise that the symbols were abnormal until later in the dream.

So, yeah, I can see my watch frequently. It's just not reliable or consistent which is why it makes such a good 'dream check'.

I don't remember most of my dreams so that doesn't help too much 😂

Was the time on the clock right for the context? i.e. early in the morning if your getting up for school...

I do the looking twice thing with signs as the same sign will say different random things each time I look at it

That works as an analogue. The reasons I check my watch are 1) I wear it in real life every day so it's an easy reference. 2) it beeps on the hour and I do a mock 'reality check' in waking hours but then also the beeps when I'm sleeping trigger the same thing in my dreams (or maybe I don't hear them in my sleep and hear dream-beeps). It means I can pull myself into a state of awareness in a dream with a trigger and become lucid then take control of it. I come across signs less frequently in waking life and in dreams

Another fun one to try is counting fingers. Use your thumb and press against each finger counting each digit then do it in reverse order. In dream states, I often miscount.

No not that I remember. The only thing in dreams that is even remotely close to depicting time would be if I remember a dream where I was a little girl in it.

Not necessarily, nightmares are only nightmares if they wake you up suddenly. If you wake up naturally but have horrible dreams that's not technically classed as a nightmare, rather a bad dream

I've always thought of nightmares as a bad dream - even if you don't wake up.
So I never have nightmares? Just bad dreams I guess...

Hmmmm interesting. i don't normally see a clocks, but if I do the clocks normally in black roman numerals. Though, if I see a clock in my dream it usually means something bad's gonna happen in the dream.

I read online that you can see them in dreams but they won't work.
