This weekend marks the return of Daylight Savings Time. Americans in most parts of the nation will be moving their clocks and watches one hour ahead as the days start to grow longer and daylight extends into evening hours.
Only two states in the United States: Arizona and Hawaii do not employ Daylight Savings Time. The former because the weather is too warm and increasing daylight hours would only increase the use of energy for air conditioners and air cooling systems. Hawaii sits close to the equator and does not experience variations in daylight hours between summer and winter.
When you change your wristwatches ahead one hour this weekend, you may want to keep in mind the type of crown on the watch you have. Most water-resistant timepieces have locking screw-down crowns requiring you to unlock the crown first then gently pull the crown out.
Multi-function timepieces and watches with adjustable date windows may have more than one crown setting, so you may have to locate the correct setting to adjust the time. Regardless of the type of crown setting you have, you need to handle the crown with the utmost delicacy, since you don’t want to accidently pull out the crown.
Daylight Savings is also the perfect time to consider a new timepiece for your collection and popular online retailer WorldofWatches.com has a wide variety of popular men’s and women’s watches from today’s most sought-after watchmakers, including Invicta, Swiss Legend, Gucci, Bulova, Lucien Piccard, Elini Barokas, Caravelle New York, Gucci, Maurice Lacroix and Luminox.
The Swiss Legend Typhoon men’s watch in bright cobalt blue is an excellent choice for Spring. This robust and vigorous men’s timepiece has a generously oversized rose gold-tone stainless steel case. The case is presented on a bright cobalt blue silicone strap.
The blue screened unidirectional rotating bezel surrounds the blue dial with luminous hands and hour markers. A window between the 4 and 5 o’clock hour reveals the automatic date calendar. The locking screw-down crown has a protective cover along the side.
Premium Swiss-made quartz movement inside provides precise time-keeping accuracy. Watch is 47mm in diameter, 14mm thick and is water-resistant to 200 meters or 660 feet.
