A doubt and a source...

Hello...I was writing a comment and found myself confused trying to express something briefly...this is what I am trying to write...

¿Cuál le pertenece a cada uno?...

The context is the following: three guys mixed up three identical watches...now they want to know Which is whom?

Is this bold phrase ok?...or should I have written: which belongs to each one?

I don't know If I explained myself properly...anyway...trying to find an answer on Google...I entered into this web...seems really cool for learning some english...the graphics, vocabulary, and style...pretty cool...hope you like it....

The common way to say it is "Whose (watch) is whose?", though that version is not grammatically correct (strictly speaking).

If you want to be careful about the grammar, you can go with "Which (watch/one) belongs to each person?" That version is a little clunkier, but nobody would tell you it's wrong :)
