Oh Ron, why aren't you Dumbledore?

Very small spoiler below... as in ridiculously small, so I'm not cutting. Just be warned.

"Dumbledore gave a great sniff as he took a golden watch from his pocket and examined it. It was a very odd watch. It had twelve hands but no numbers; instead, little planets were moving around the edge." 1st ed. Sorcerers Stone, Pg. 12.

"'Seriously good haul this year!' [Ron] announced, holding up a heavy gold watch with odd symbols around the edge and tiny moving starts instead of hands." Half-Blood Prince, 1st Ed. American. Pg. 390

Oh Ron, why aren't you Dumbledore?

Honestly, if Jo hadn't already said the Knight to King theory isn't true I would be... rather convince. I never did like that theory (I want Ron to have a normal and Happy post war life, thank you very much!) so I'm rather glad it's been debunked, but still. I find this very amusing.

It also has me thinking that perhaps this watch on your coming of age is a wizarding tradition of some sort. Perhaps Harry will recieve one on his birthday? Perhaps it will have something to do with his past?

Anywho, that's my HBP ramblings for the day.
