Gilbert Nightray (in the final chapter)
HistoryEditJack had crafted the pocketwatch as a reminder of his beloved Lacie, who he lost when she was sacrificed to the Abyss by her brother Oswald. Whenever the watch is opened, it plays the sad tune with a light undertone that Lacie always used to sing. After creating a tomb in honour of Lacie, on an estate later used for Oz's Coming of Age Ceremony, Jack brought the Intention of the Abyss, who was using Alice's body, though she did not know it at the time, to her mother's tomb. He played Lacie's melody once more, before leaving his pocketwatch on the grave, where it remained for over 100 years.
AppearanceEditJack's pocketwatch is a type of Hunter-case watches. It is a pocketwatch with a yellow-golden spring hinged-circular fulled with unique ornaments that closes over the watch with the center of the ornaments looks resembles like a double-edged spear–which also make somewhat a smiling face with
Coming of Age Ceremony ArcEditWhile at the mansion for his Coming of Age Ceremony, Oz found Lacie's tomb when he stepped on unstable ground after hearing Lacie in the distance, tumbling down the stone stairs that lead to the tomb with his valet, Gilbert.
Oz saw the grave, however due to its age, Lacie's name had eroded off of it, but Jack's pocketwatch still remained. Oz picked up the pocketwatch, not knowing who owned it and feeling that it was familiar, even though he was sure he had never seen the watch nor heard its melody. Oz suddenly experieced a memory contained in the watch, where he encountered the Intention of the Abyss and her sister Alice. 'Lacie' was also heard within the Abyss, as the Chain known as Alice the B-Rabbit heard the melody calling to her, and so she followed it to Earth when a distortion in the Abyss opened a path.
Sometime after Oz returned from the Abyss, in the Rainsworth Mansion, Xerxes Break quickly expelled Alice, who was holding Sharon hostage, from Oz's body, making him drop the pocketwatch in the process. Jack's pocketwatch then opened a path to the Abyss, which a Card then used to come to Earth. Alice, allowed to use her powers, quickly butchered the Chain. Soon after this, the group experieced the memory dwelling inside the pocketwatch. After this, Oz carried the pocketwatch with him wherever he went, much like Jack did 100 years before.
