The time change in watch shops in kissingen

The first clock has already been changed. One in over 600. Stefan neubert carefully puts the expensive armani wristwatch back in the glass display case. Among her contemporaries, she is so far the only one on the shelf whose hands are already set to winter time. Only gradually are all of them put back an hour.

In his jewelry business, neubert deals with a few more watches than the average consumer. And there will be more. Christmas just around the corner, 200 new watches to be delivered in the next few days. And some of them are not on summer or winter time. But are – depending on the manufacturer – for example set to japanese time.

Time takes time

By the 3 a.M. Time change tonight, neubert won't be able to get all the clocks back to "normal time" on poland. But the watch lover doesn't see it so narrowly. He and his colleagues are taking their time. "All at once, that would be difficult. We always do this in between", neubert says calmly. "Our customers don't really care whether the clocks in the store are set to summer or winter time anyway."
For many people, it is much more important that their own watch is in the right position. That's why neubert expects – as after every time change – some customers to have their clocks changed by a specialist next monday as well.

Just like karl servatius. In his watch store, too, the changeover is being approached in a rather leisurely manner: "we'll do that when there's time and when it fits in. In the course of a month, this is mostly done."
Over 1000 watches in his jewelry store waiting to be converted. Only about ten percent of them are radio-controlled clocks, which means that they are leaving summer mode all by themselves. All the others will have to take their turn on monday. First of all, the watches in the office and in the workshop. "We need the right time", says servatius.

Neubert, meanwhile, continues to work with his employees kerstin muller and gabriele schreck to change over the first clocks. One by one, they take them off the shelf, spin them, print them and put them back. Until next time.
