Help me remember the book series I loved as a kid. I can't even remember the genre, but I think it had sci-fi elements, and the kids possibly solved mysteries. I don't remember much, but I know one of the main characters was called Watch, because he always wore multiple watches.

Other things I remember:
- Watch was slightly older than the other kids.
- There was some mystery involving Watch's family (his parents were dead? or mysteriously missing?).
- He kept one of his watches set to the wrong time - I think possibly it was set to whatever the time was where his parents were.
- There was a scene where the kids jumped into a body of water from a lighthouse (I think), to escape, and Watch told them to throw a plank in just before they jumped to break the water (or something like that), so they wouldn't get hurt when they landed.
I'm relatively certain it was a series of books, and that it was set in America (or Canada). If it helps, I'm pretty sure I got it out of the library some time in the late '90s. I would have been around 10 years old when I read these.
