Ruling concerning wearing a watch during the mourning period.

Question: Is it allowed for a woman to wear a watch to know what time it is and not for the sake of beautification during her mourning period?

Response: Yes. That is allowed for her due to he intention. However, if she even avoids that, that would be best because it does resemble jewellery.

And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
