We are turning the clock forward for daylight saving time (DST), though I don’t need to do it manually, thanks to our radio-controlled wall clock that shifts to summertime or wintertime automatically. Otherwise, I may have to get up at 2:00 AM tomorrow to turn my clock forward. But I couldn’t possibly do this, who could anyway, when everybody’s in deep slumber at this hour. This is another change that I find myself quite hard to get used to in the first week. It feels like my sleep is abruptly one hour short and everything will be affected. If I get up tomorrow at 10:00 AM the real time is already 11:00 AM. But it doesn’t matter much cos I normally sleep in on Sundays. The week ahead is more of an adjustment period.
Speaking of DST, this Weltzeituhr (World Clock) in Berlin shows the local time of different countries. The first time I saw it, I thought it was nothing but a unique design of a clock.
It was summer when we were there and I noticed that the clock showed the exact time in Manila at that time in Berlin. The local time is shown on the wall clock while the world’s time is shown on the 24-hour clock. Tourists will never lose track of their own local time.
Check your time on the Weltzeituhr when you’re in Berlin!
That is really cool i never knew a clock like that existed. How neat
Yes, it’s so creative of Berlin to build such a clock.
I have seen several clocks that shows the time of different countries at the same time.But the Weltzeituhr (World Clock)has a very unique design.
Thank you. Yes, indeed, its design is distinct.
Wow! how cool is that clock….speaking of radio controlled clock/watch, i bought a casio g-shock geiz, and im freakin’ how to set the clock manually.. found out that it is radio controlled… unfortunately, it doesn’t have any radio here in the Philippines to synch, only in japan, UK and the US. but it is one heck of a watch…
I wonder how these clocks are configured… maybe, i’ll go to your place or Japan to have this set up.. hehehehehe… nah!
I have no idea either how to set manually a radio-controlled watch. Obviously, your watch is imported, heheee! I’ll see what I can do and ask anyone here how to set your watch.
thanks marlene, i have downloaded the manual and it took me almost 4 hours to set the clock, napuyat ako kakapindot… hehehehehehe….
pero everytime na hindi ko sya magamit at maiwan ko sa dilim, nag rereset yung clock nya to japan time… pero pag ginamit mo na, automatic sya bumabalik sa manual na na-set ko.. galing nga eh!
