    the watch with the chain

    1-I took the watch with the chain to the watchmaker.

    2-I bought the watch with the chain.

    3-He stole the watch with the chain.


    I think in all of the above 'the watch with the chain' can have two meanings:

    a-the watch which had a chain

    b-the watch and the chain (two separate objects)

    Is that correct?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
