    Do you change EVERY watch in your collection to Wintertime?

    Tonight we change to wintertime again.

    I have adjusted my mechanical watches already.

    But I think that I will leave the digital Casio's to summertime, they will be fine by next spring.

    I do not like fidling around with new GMT differences etc. on moonwatches that I treasure but never wear...

    How about you?

    Thanks for your opinions!

    I true up whatever watch I put on in the morning. Some have wound down, others were on the winder, but over time get a bit off. So, because I will likely wear all my watches during "winter time", yes, I will set them to the correct time. I don't get all anal and run around before I go to bed the night before the change and change all my watches.

    As my mechanicals run down when not worn - yes, but that's no different to setting them when I pick them up to wear anyway.

    As for the quartz - I'll set them next time I wear them (same as adjusting the date after a month with less than 31 days)

    I let my autos die once they're off the wrist but I do all the quartz/solar/Kinetic watches. As I'm not wearing one of these today I've already done them early, and a righ pain it was too. I had a real battle with a couple of the Casios but I won in the end. It's at this time of year that I REALLY love atomics.

    I'm with the "I set it when I pick it up" crowd. Wasn't always that way and back when I had 3 or 4 quartz watches I suspect that some had to be reset in the spring without ever having been worn all winter.

    I have 20 autos that I wear in rotation, not on winders. So, I simply re-set as I wear them. Since I retired, I have given up keeping the day/date in sync and that doesn't bother me in the least ! I have 2 quartz watches that I do keep current.

    As with the others...the mechanicals will get reset when they get worn. The quartzes...the HAQs will get reset, but that's also part of a loose, ongoing accuracy check. The standard quartzes will probably get changed too...if nothing else, to eliminate any deviation since March, when they were set to DST. One nice thing: many, if not most, of the standard quartz are 2-handers, and don't even have a minute track. They're easy. :)

    Eventually I do. But as I wear them. Some I haven't worn since the last time change...so I'm good to go there. 😊

    I just wore my Omega Seamaster to go vote, and I haven't even checked the time yet. There are times when I wear a watch for a couple of hours before realizing that the time is off. I'm also on the road a lot, so a lot of times I'm ashamed to say I treat my watches like jewelry and accessories.

    One of the reasons I love the practicality of quartz watches, to be honest.

    I do when I pick them up as well. What I love is my 2 radio controlled watches they do everything themselves :)
