The Merlin Conspiracy - time stood still... (no spoilers)

Ive been lurking beyond lurkdom here for a while, but
I am currently halfway through The Merlin Conspiracy
and loving it.
I was having a restless night last night and, at 5am,
decided to sit up and read TMC for a while. Ill read
for half an hour, I thought to myself. After a while,
I checked my watch and it said 5.23am. I could have
sworn it had been nearly that the previous time I
looked, so I checked my alarm clock. It read 6.05am.
My watch had stopped.
Later that day, a work colleague noticed that I'd
changed watches. When I explained what had happened
and showed her my stopped watch, she said, Thats
funny - *my* watch stopped at 5.11am this morning.
Thats eerily close to the same time!
What's even more eery, and what she didnt know, is
that I keep my watch and all my clocks running 12
minutes fast, so my watch *had* stopped at 5.11am.
I like the idea of being frozen in time and coincidence
while reading DWJ. It seems just right.
