  Watch \Watch\ (w[o^]ch), n. [OE. wacche, AS. w[ae]cce, fr.
     wacian to wake; akin to D. wacht, waak, G. wacht, wache.
     [root]134. See {Wake}, v. i. ]
     [1913 Webster]
     1. The act of watching; forbearance of sleep; vigil; wakeful,
        vigilant, or constantly observant attention; close
        observation; guard; preservative or preventive vigilance;
        formerly, a watching or guarding by night.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Shepherds keeping watch by night.     --Milton.

        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Watch was formerly distinguished from ward, the former
           signifying a watching or guarding by night, and the
           latter a watching, guarding, or protecting by day
           Hence, they were not unfrequently used together,
           especially in the phrase to keep watch and ward, to
           denote continuous and uninterrupted vigilance or
           protection, or both watching and guarding. This
           distinction is now rarely recognized, watch being used
           to signify a watching or guarding both by night and by
           day, and ward, which is now rarely used, having simply
           the meaning of guard, or protection, without reference
           to time.
           [1913 Webster]
  
                 Still, when she slept, he kept both watch and

           [1913 Webster]
  
                 Ward, guard, or custodia, is chiefly applied to
                 the daytime, in order to apprehend rioters, and
                 robbers on the highway . . . Watch, is properly
                 applicable to the night only, . . . and it begins
                 when ward ends, and ends when that begins.
                                                    --Blackstone.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     2. One who watches, or those who watch; a watchman, or a body
        of watchmen; a sentry; a guard.

        [1913 Webster]
  
     4. The period of the night during which a person does duty as
        a sentinel, or guard; the time from the placing of a
        sentinel till his relief; hence, a division of the night.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              I did stand my watch upon the hill.   --Shak.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Might we but hear . . .
              Or whistle from the lodge, or village cock
              Count the night watches to his feathery dames.
                                                    --Milton.

           escapement used, as an {anchor watch}, a {lever watch},
           a {chronometer watch}, etc. (see the Note under
           {Escapement}, n., 3); also, by the kind of case, as a
           {gold} or {silver watch}, an {open-faced watch}, a
           {hunting watch}, or {hunter}, etc.
           [1913 Webster]

          consternation; dismay; agitation; disquiet; disquietude.
  
     Usage: {Alarm}, {Fright}, {Terror}, {Consternation}. These
            words express different degrees of fear at the
            approach of danger. Fright is fear suddenly excited,
            producing confusion of the senses, and hence it is
            unreflecting. Alarm is the hurried agitation of
            feeling which springs from a sense of immediate and
            extreme exposure. Terror is agitating and excessive
            fear, which usually benumbs the faculties.
            Consternation is overwhelming fear, and carries a
            notion of powerlessness and amazement. Alarm agitates
            the feelings; terror disorders the understanding and
            affects the will; fright seizes on and confuses the
            sense; consternation takes possession of the soul, and
            subdues its faculties. See {Apprehension}.
