Looked at the time
On the watch that had stopped 6 months after the shots
That'd got him in the box
Despite their long life, watch batteries do have a limited lifespan; most lithium batteries last 2 to 7 years, so odds are he’d been in the ground for a while longer than 6 months
Or, it was an old watch that he’d been wearing years before being shot.
