CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.
If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

The hands won't automatically adjust because the watch doesn't know that it's in a different time zone. But it's relatively easy to set the watch to a different time zone and see the hands move backwards/forwards as needed. The GPS-based watches also won't automatically adjust for DST transitions because the satellites don't transmit a DST indicator. But radio-controlled watches like the AT9010 do adjust for DST.if you take a flight to a different time zone don’t the hands just automatically move as soon as it picks up the new location sat?
Thanks for that opinion. I appreciate it. The only large watch I own is a Casio G Shock, and it’s not nearly as big as some of the other versions of that watch.First time poster to this thread. I’m curious to get your opinion on this Citizen radio control eco drive (AT9010-52E) that I just got from Amazon. I absolutely love the look of the watch, but I’m a little worried that it’s too big for my wrist (44mm case). I have between a seven and a 7” and 7 1/4” wrist. Thoughts?View attachment 1359326View attachment 1359327View attachment 1359328
IIRC London has DST. UTC doesn't. Otherwise they're the same. And I agree that DST should go the way of the dinosaurs.Looks nice too but how come London isn’t UTC. I thought London / GMT / UTC were all the same apart from the summertime adjustment (which I hope and pray to any god who is listening we can all do away with in the near future!)
42mm is quite large; the integrated bracelet means no straps. Note also the OK/RX/NO window is not something that changes (like the date wheel) but just a window around some dial writing. I find it a bit imbalanced as a result. Finally if you are a monarchist you will appreciate the fleur de lys on the seconds handsThanks for that opinion. I appreciate it.

I love the technology on the AT9010-52E, and so I’m also looking at watches with the same tech that are a little smaller. The problem is I don’t like the face on these as much as the AT9010-52E above. The two I’m considering are a little more formal; I’m looking for a watch that’s super versatile, ideally with a bracelet band. I have this CB0160-00E on order and might switch the band to a stainless steel one.

I’ve also considered the CB0160-51L. It is the same as the model above but with a blue dial and stainless steel band.

The black dial was a steal at $125 on eBay; the blue dial was also a good deal at $154 on eBay, both from the seller: officialwatchdeals.
Any thoughts are much appreciated from this indecisive and new watch enthusiast.
Thanks. That’s helpful. What do you think of the watch I’m wearing n the previous post I put up? It’s a citizen AT9010-52E.42mm is quite large; the integrated bracelet means no straps.

Otherwise not a bad option for a cheap world timer. One of the cheapest options.
