Applewatch is a small settlement located in the Jerall Mountains west of Bruma. It was the ancestral home of the Draconis family, and is the namesake of the Applewatch Wood region.

The Applewatch Inn was opened in the mid-Second Era by Leono and Rasala Draconis. However, Applewatch's secluded location ensured that the inn received few visitors, and the couple were forced to consider farming instead. During the Alliance War of 2E 582, the settlement's position was put into jeopardy when Bruma was sacked by the forces of Molag Bal, cutting off supplies. During the Planemeld, a Dark Anchor was also opened south of the settlement, in the Applewatch Wood region.[1]

The inn was later closed and seemingly deconstructed, and by the late Third Era the Draconis family had built a small farmhouse at Applewatch. In 3E 433, the Dark Brotherhood received a contract to eliminate the entire Draconis family, which at the time consisted of an elderly Perennia Draconis and her four adult children. Perennia was murdered at Applewatch after she revealed the location of her children, who were located all across Cyrodiil. The family were reunited in death when the assassinated children were buried beside their mother at Applewatch, although Perennia's vengeful ghost began to haunt the graves.[2]

Later that year, a Speaker for the Brotherhood named Lucien Lachance was framed as a traitor and was forced to go into hiding. He chose to stay at the abandoned farmstead at Applewatch while his Silencer worked to clear his name, but the surviving members of the Black Hand tracked him down and mutilated him before he could prove his innocence. Applewatch was then briefly occupied by the Black Hand while they plotted their next move. During the Oblivion Crisis, an Oblivion Gate to the Deadlands was opened just up the hill from the settlement.[2]
