This is the one hundred and thirty eighth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Harold. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which number would be impossible to see on the clock as a date.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    All the days of the month are listed in order on a round dial inside the watch.

    When the date changes over, however, a date that doesn't exist could appear...

Hint Two
    Two of the three examples show the date just at it's changing over from one day to the next.

    Think about how two of these numbers are possible, and see if you can figure out why one of them isn't.

Hint Three
    Keep in mind that each day of the month is listed in order to a rotating dial inside the watch.

    So at midnight, when the 19th switches over to the 20th, you would see the number 92 displayed for a few moments.

Super Hint
    The number 93 in example B shows the date as the 29th switching over to the 30th at midnight.

    By the way, there's no 40th of the month...

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Remember, this is an analog watch. Think about the type of mechanism it must use to display all the days of the month.

[edit] When Completed

Genius!

The number displayed in example C is the correct answer.

You could see A or B as the date changed over at midnight, but there's no way the number in C would ever appear.

[edit] Solution

Example C is an impossible number.
