Daylight Saving Time Info
It is now the end of daylight saving time. It's essential to remember to set your clocks back one hour. This annual tradition, known as "falling back," will occur at 2am Sunday, November 5th, 2023. This extra hour of sleep is a welcome change for many, but it also means that you'll need to adjust your timekeeping devices to ensure they reflect the correct time.
Here's some general info on how to adjust your clocks and watches;
Analog Quartz Clocks:
If you have analog clocks with clock hands, please use the small round knob on the back of your clock movement itself to change the hands. Never use the hands themselves to set the time.
Always use the hands to set the time (Oddly enough, the complete opposite of Quartz clocks), and always go forwards with the hands. Use the minute hand to set the time forward. The hour hand should rarely be moved, and it usually stays on track once set.
For digital clocks, you may need to consult your user manual, as the process can vary between different models. Typically, you'll find an option to adjust the time in your clock's settings.
Smartphones, tablets, and other internet-connected devices usually update the time automatically based on your location. However, if you have disabled this feature, ensure that your device's time settings are set to automatically update the time.
All Quartz and Mechanical Watches:
Use the crown to set the time forward to the desired time. It is best to never move the hands backwards as doing so can cause a number of issues, but most notably it introduces unnecessary wear onto the movement itself (Internal workings)
Daylight Saving Time (DST) serves several purposes, including saving energy and making better use of natural daylight during the longer days of summer. By moving the clocks forward in the spring and backward in the fall, we aim to maximize daylight during our waking hours.
Here are some quick facts about DST:
It begins on the second Sunday in March, when we "spring forward" by setting our clocks ahead one hour.
DST ends on the first Sunday in November, when we "fall back" by setting our clocks back one hour, which provides us with an extra hour of sleep.
Please ensure that all your timekeeping devices are adjusted correctly, so you're not caught off guard when you wake up on November 5th.
