"The watch has arrived, but the pendulum is missing"

Santa's wife was expecting & the baby was due any day. Santa was very confident it would be a boy & was looking forward to the D-day. As fate would have it, he was transferred to another city & had to join office immediately. Before going, he asked his father-in-law to send a telegram confirming birth of his son, but in order to avoid giving party to his office colleagues, he asks his father-in-law to write "the watch has arrived" & he will understand that the son is born.

The D-day arrived. His wife delivered a cute little baby girl. Now Santa's father-in-law didn't know what to do.. If he writes "the watch has arrived" Santa will think he has got a Son. If he writes "watch has not arrived" Santa will get worried that something serious has happened, but being a very intelligent person, he finds a solution & sends the telegram.

Santa received the telegram, opened it eagerly and reads "The watch has arrived, but the pendulum is missing".
