relics uncovered from the sea's stomach

My mother's old White Rabbit watch. It has an extensive history, having ticked form the time I was 5 to 14? (Those swiss watch makers)
It's a relic from my uncle's first White Rabbit yacht. He's making the 3rd/4th White Rabbit now, replete with lavish interiors and spiral staircases. It's amazing to have a gift from White Rabbit the Very First :3

I've lost and found it again and again. It never seems to truly disappear. Recently, after Yanny admonished for not having a watch for the past 2+ years, it reappeared again. It's mine now! (happy-happy) Somehow, its presence on my wrist is very comforting. Perhaps because it's one of the reoccuring motifs in my life, or a recovered fragment of some universe I was divorced from when I was really little... (the heart of my weirdness, so to speak. Insert long, improbable and vastly surreal story here that you will not believe).
What is the connection between Alice's white rabbit, time ("I'm late! I'm late!") and the sea? Hmm.

(yes, I live, and have lived, a strangely surreal life befitting of its own work of fiction, albeit one people will dismiss it as 'unrealistic' XD)


All it needed was a new strap <3


I love how it looks next to my bag :3

Et some doodles...

illustrations:
the dapper gentleman / little miss inkblot / the spoked eye / cat balloons and fish /  the fox's shadow :D (he has a dead rabbit in his bag...)


text below says miss inkblot is white with fear/worry/stress/intangible-dragons (or-rattlesnakes)-that-writhe-(or-rustle) about the stomach.
