' when you ask someone for a time and they reply time to get a watch' meaning I found this sentence on reddit. What's confusing me is 'reply time to get a watch'. What is the meaning of it?

It's a play on words, a joke. "What time is it?" can be answered by all of the following: "Time to go to work." or "8:30 - time to go to work." "Time to get up." "Time for lunch." Answering with "Time to get a watch." is a joke because the person asking obviously doesn't have a watch if they need to ask someone what the time is, and especially if they ask often, it really is time for them to get a watch!
