    Daylight Saving Time - the clocks go forward an hour

    Here in the UK the clocks go forward an hour at 2am on Sunday.

    I've got about 10 clocks - only 2 of which are atomics, so I'll have to manually adjust the rest.

    Of my 8 watches, only 1 is atomic so I'll need to adjust the rest, too. I think the Casios have a DST change button but other watches (I'm looking at my Rado) are harder to adjust. Of all my watches, the Rado is the hardest to adjust anything as it has a crown that must be pulled out and turned quite quickly to change anything. You need a degree to understand how it works. Luckily, I've got its PDF manual.

    What are your thoughts on this matter?

    Re: Daylight Saving Time - the clocks go forward an hour

    The most recent time change in the US motivated me to buy my first radio controlled watch, a Citizen. Where I live in the northeast US I am at the outer edge of the Ft Collins, Colorado station, but if weather cooperates I have a living room window near which the watch will sync, and I've also had 100% sync rate outside on my porch in the very early morning hours.

    The watch is also a world timer and all I have to do is rotate the second hand to the designated city and time zone and the watch automatically adjusts to that zone. That and a perpetual calendar, sapphire crystal, 200m WR, solar powered (no more batteries to replace) and all for under $300 USD and I couldn't turn it down.

    Other than the clocks displayed running, I change all my stuff as I use it in my haphazard rotation. My atomics take care of themselves and make great references when I'm setting others.

    All my RC's do it themselves.

    Everything else I take care of manually.

    We switched to DST a couple of weeks ago, so I have already done that drill.

    It’s going to be a real hoot for me this time. Some require a manual change, some are BlueTooth, some are GPS, some have a DST option and others are atomic. Do yo think I can remember which is which?

    Only three more years of the biannual time change saga.

    Even if we're no longer in the EU I'm sure the UK will follow suit.

    I wish all of US would follow Arizona and Hawaii and switch to standard time. Don't think it will happen any time soon.
