    He looks his watch, leaves the department

    Hello.

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct?


    "He looks his watch, leaves the department quickly and goes to the building reception."

    Thanks,

    Re: He looks his watch, leaves the department

    He looks at his watch ...

    It's more natural to just say "... goes to reception". The reader will assume that it's in the same building as the department he left.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
