Are watches and clocks the same in Norwegian?

We refer to both as "klokker", but there are more precise names for the different types:

armbåndsur = wrist watch
lommeur = pocket watch
veggklokke/veggur = wall clock

Ikke glem gulvur (grandfather clock) ;)

So I'm pretty new to this, but could this be translated as "the man has the time" since "klokke" is often referred as "the time"

It's "en klokke" in the sentence.

Hvis du bruker alltid "klokka", hvorfor sier du heller ikke "ei klokke" i stedet?
