    What time does your watch make?

    Hello,

    Would you tell me whether the following sentence is of common use?

    "What time does your watch make?"

    Thank you a lot.

    No, it's not. "What time is it by your watch?" is possible.

    Or "Have you got the time?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
