Is there a name for a compulsion to check the clock at certain times of the day?

As far as I know it's just plain old "clock watching." Sometimes

there is a certain time frame that something traumatic happened and

it's possible that the person may stop what they are doing and look

at the clock at that exact time, but it's not a problem and a minor

issue. My twin sons were born at 3 PM and 3:15 PM prematurely and

they passed away within a day of each other. I can tell you exactly

when 3 PM or 3:15 PM comes around each day. I have no idea why I

know, I just know and I don't let it bother me.
