If you are like me, your body is still adjusting to the Daylight Savings Time! While I welcome "Spring Forward" and more daylight, "Fall Back", with its colder weather and darkness at 5pm is more difficult. Regardless of which time of year, the aggravation of resetting all of my clocks due to DST was exhausting! I love my Set and Forget® movements which automatically takes care of this!
You are probably familiar with Radio Controlled clocks that receive the radio signal from Fort Collins, Colorado. Although these clocks are highly accurate to the second and change automatically for daylight savings time, you have to be careful where they are placed to get the radio signal. Due to this concern, we developed our Set and Forget® clock movements.
These movements do the exact same function as our Radio Controlled movements but do not require a radio signal. There is an internal microchip calendar. It keeps track of the current date and time and is preprogrammed through the year 2098. The microchip tells the clock to make the DST change at 3am Eastern, 2am Central, 1am Mountain and 12am Pacific twice a year! In the fall, the hands will spin around forward 11 hours to achieve a set back of one hour from standard time to DST. In the spring, the hands will speed up to one hour.
Set and Forget clock movements were made to make your life easier.
