Q. 2

What were the attempts made by the author to get his watch repaired?

Answer :

The author's watch had worked perfectly for eighteen months before he had let it run down. The author felt devastated and tried to get his watch repaired the very next day from a chief jeweler's shop to set the watch to the correct time. The head of the establishment tried to repair it even though the author told him to leave the watch alone, but ended up worsening the condition of the watch. After that, the watch started to work faster than before and went ahead of time. After two months, the author took the watch to the watchmaker to have it regulated who kept the watch with him for a week and the speed was slowed down more than necessary. He then took it to another watch maker who said that the barrel was 'swelled' and he would need three days to repair it. The author took the watch to another watch maker who said that the king bolt was broken and repaired it and then to a different watch maker again. Then at last, the watch was taken to another watch maker who used to be a steam-boat engineer.
The author made a number of attempts to restore his watch by taking it to seven different people.
