Set & Forget® Technology:

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do Set & Forget® clocks work?
A: Set & Forget® is a patented technology that allows clocks movements to automatically correct themselves for Daylight Saving Time. Clocks featuring Set & Forget® technology require no radio signals or antennas; they contain an internal microprocessor that has been pre-programmed with a separate clock and calendar through the year 2098. Simply select your time zone, and the correct time and date are automatically displayed. You never have to adjust the time settings on your clock with this technology.

Q:  Which locations will clocks that use Set & Forget® technology operate in?
A:  This technology can be used in the United States and Canada.

Q:  Can I set the clock so that it will always be exactly 5 minutes fast?
A:  Clock movements that use Set & Forget® technology can be set to however many minutes ahead you would like. Clocks movements with Set & Forget® technology function exactly like a standard quartz clock movement, except that they will automatically adjust for the Daylight Saving Time changes. They will maintain any time difference that you manually create during set up.

Q:  What will I see when the time changes in the spring and fall?
A: Spring DST – the clock will fast forward approximately 8 minutes between 12:00 and 4:00 a.m. until the correct time change is reached.  Fall DST – the clock will slow for approximately 1 hour 15 minutes between 12:00 and 4:00 a.m. until the correct time change is reached.

How is the date set on a set and forget movement and can the change dates be modified or disabled?

Asked by: mhubel
The date is set on a Set & Forget clock movement by the internal microprocessor. This piece has been pre-programmed with a separate clock and calendar through the year 2098. Simply select your time zone, and the correct time and date are automatically displayed. The change dates cannot be modified, but can be disabled by switching the Set & Forget DST feature to OFF on the back of the clock movement.
