Tourneau changes more than 100,000 watches for Daylight Saving Time

It has been reported that MA is now on its way to joining these areas and making changing the clocks a thing of the past. That way, your clocks will be accurate when you awaken Sunday.

Others advocate for "inverting" daylight saving time to make the winter days longer, arguing this could even help combat seasonal affective disorder. While this means an extra hour of sleep, it also means that sunrise and sunset will occur an hour earlier starting with Sunday.

Daylight Saving is observed in 70 countries and most states in the US, with clocks being set ahead one hour in the spring and back one hour in autumn.

DST will return at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 11, 2018.
