    I only have to set a handful of the 40, thank god. All the automatics are run down, most of the digitals are atomic G's, so that only leaves the odd Hamilton Khaki ETO, Citizen Orca or Calibre 2100.

    I absolutely hate DST. It really throws me off. I feel weird for at least a week or two. The switch to DST is worse then the one to winter time in that regard.

    I always get up at around dawn, so an hour really does have an impact: it's the difference between getting up in darkness, or waking up on a sunny morning. You feel like a time traveller for a few days, always one step behind the rest of the world... You get less sleep, breakfast tastes different, I feel less productive at work... like everything is rushing by me at light speed. Really annoying.

    I like DST, but I hate normal time. I like late light at night. But the change, specially the few days after DST starts are indeed awefull. I wish they made it normal time. I have only set my DB Frogman this afternoon. I am surrounded by atomic clocks and an atomic thermometer (it's almost 10ºC outside), so I have the right time around.

    I will have to set quite a lot of watches back to DST.... but I don't feel like it now.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    i dont feel any effect about setting to dst, what is the problem? just go to bed one hour earlier today and its done, or just sleep one hour less and drink more coffee tomorrow.

    i also love to have more light in the evening. they could set dst all year. today was such a great sunny day, and the sun almost shining till 19, and then in summer almost 21 is great.

    My daily routine (if that isn't the wrong word...) varies by more than DST changes...
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    i only change the watches i wear regularly, so only 8 or so will need adjusting. still a pain though.
