Does anyone manually adjust any clocks anymore?

A clock above the TV, a mantle clock in the office, and my watch. 

Don't turn any fine time pieces backwards.  The mantle clock chimes. I take it all the way around.  The watch has a date, so to save effort I just pull the stem out, wait an hour, pop it back in and we're good.

I looked at a house the other day that had a very grand, grandfather clock. It was near 8'.  Had I put in an offer on that place, it would have included that clock.  :008:

Still set my wristwatch and the clock in my pickup. 

A little off topic, but clock related: I remember when I was a kid,  my mother recieved a mantle clock from a relative who had passed away. It was called an 8-day clock IIRC. Mom wound it up and set it on a shelf.  It chimed every 15 minutes, day and night, for the next 8 days. It was never wound again.

My microwave, oven and the phone system at my house.  Oh, and about 130 customers' systems and voice mails today, so to answer your question, yes I do.

I've got a couple I still reset.

We've got an oak Grandmother clock (Wall hanging, about 3' tall). We got it as an engagement present from a group of old friends. It's got that every 15 minute Westminster chime. When we moved I tested it again and it needs maintenance. It's needed maintenance for 20 years. It might be another 20 years till it gets it... :011:

I counted 11 devices I had to update in the house yesterday.  I don't need no stickin' updated technology.   :011:

I was amazed to see that Ford finally has their clocks update automatically. Only took them until 2020.

Don't remember if it's the spring or fall, but the friggin' Partner R6's will update then three weeks later go back. That's when you have to set it manually.

I learned how to move a Grandfather Clock years ago.  If you're not careful those will need to be recalibrated after every move.  My mantle clock went on the fireplace in one of the offices to mark the end of sessions.  You can turn those chimes way down on this one.  It's a nice sound, though.
