    How long did it take you to 'fall back' all you watches?

    Hey all,

    As an emerging WIS, this morning was my first daylight savings time adjustment. It took me about 10 minutes to get through my 5 watches and my wife's watch, and it made me think "how long does this take a collector with tens and twenties and thirties of watches?" Curious as to what I'll be going through come springtime next year ;)

    I only have 4 mechanicals but no winder so I have to set them every time I pick them up anyway. So no longer than any other day.

    I'd say about 5-10 mins for all my quartz watches and the one wall clock. My C60 Trident was still ticking from being worn yesterday, so I set that one too--and wound it to keep it going...all my other automatics were still, so no worries there.

    20 mins to reset all of my quartz watches and the microwave, nightstand clock, and others. I have about 10 quartz watches total including G-Shocks.

    All my clocks at home are radio controlled with DST set to on, and this morning the ones that I've checked have all correctly switched to PST from PDT (automatically sometime while I slept). I currently own 2 watches, my atomic Casio G-shock has also automatically adjusted itself last night.

    I'm currently planning to let my other watch (a Seiko 5) run down by itself since I don't plan to wear it in the near future... so I;m not adjusting it.

    The computer I'm using to connect to this forum also has adjusted itself wrt DST.

    Total time spent dealing with DST change = 00:00:00 :)

    Just woke up, haven't even started. Breakfast and coffee, then watches.

    About two seconds. I only have one watch in use this week. The clock on the stove took longer.
