Hi,
How can we say in English the difference between the time of one's watch with that of another one's?
For example, a teacher says that the time of the exam is finished, but a student says: "No, it's 4:55". However the teachr says that it's 5 o'clock and the time is over. Does the teacher say:
a. at my watch/time it's 5
b. on my watch/time it's 5
c. according to my watch/time it's 5
d. or else?

Thanks,
korosh.shsh

She could say "According to my watch, it is 5 o'clock."

- According to my watch, it's 4.55.
- But my watch says it's only 4.55!
- No! I still have five minutes left according to my watch.
- Damn! I wish we'd synchronised watches at the start of the exam.
