Caryn Someone earlier said maybe the watch fell off in the boathouse and maybe Claire when Jimmy did not return, gathered everything and placed it in the trunk . . . ? Also, I was confused as to why they decided to "bury him at sea" because when Claire is trying to decide what to do, she has the thought that bodies and such often return to shore (paraphrasing) so I figured she was eliminating the water option . . . I think that is to lead you astray and ponder the bones in the well. :)
Ellynn Packard Jimmy or Claire must have put the watch there. I think they were Second cousins so no legal problem. But yeah, weird.
