As we spring forward one hour this weekend for Daylight Saving Time, we’re taking a look back at how it all began. The idea of re-setting our clocks first originated with Benjamin Franklin in 1784. Since that time, Daylight Saving Time has been used off and on throughout history, and has been revised throughout the years. Today, Daylight Saving Time starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. In honor of re-setting our watches, we thought we’d look at the latest designs in timepieces this season. Get ready to spring forward with these fashionable watches.
