In Terraria, I have a watch in my hotbar. I always keep it there, but the last time I looked, it won't show the time anymore. Is this a glitch, or what's happening with the watch?

    Do you have the inventory view open? Also, can you post a screenshot? – EnragedTanker Sep 21 '15 at 12:45

    I'll check when I get home, but I don't think you need to have it on your hotbar for it to show you the time. Just having it in your inventory should be enough. The time should be displayed in the top right, just under the minimap as long as you don't have your inventory open and you haven't accidentally turned off the display. – JonK Sep 21 '15 at 12:55

As long as you have the Watch in your inventory (it doesn't need to be on your hotbar, just having it with you is enough) you should be able to see the time displayed underneath your minimap in the top right of the screen:

Do bear in mind though - the information will only display while your inventory is closed. You may also enable/disable individual info items by clicking their icon while the inventory is open:

In the above image everything is enabled, whereas below, time is disabled:

If you can't see the time, check that you haven't accidentally disabled it by looking at the icon. If it's disabled, simply click it to re-enable it.

  • Your base looks amazing, from what I can see. Good work. – user91193 Jul 17 '16 at 14:07

The display of time can be toggled by clicking the watch icon underneath the minimap while an inventory is open. Maybe you accidentally clicked the watch icon.
