Crossword Genius

Keep an eye on the time (5)


I believe the answer is:


This clue is a double definition.

'keep an eye on' is the first definition.

'time' is the second definition.

'the' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for watch that I've seen before include "Vigil" , "Look at attentively" , "Timepiece - look out" , "period of duty" , "Observe - guard" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
