Yes , so do I .

The plane landing times are in the time zone where you are going.

Put it back again when I get on the plane to return home .

Must remember not to put in on when going to Portugal !

I never bother to change my watch, just add an hour on when I look at it.

I don't have a watch. My phone auto-updates and the hire car has a clock. Who needs a watch?

I prefer a watch as my phone , which is an old fashioned non smart type is usually switched off and only turned on when I want to phone somebody.

I don't bother changing mine, it spends most of the time in the safe. I know this isn't really a travel question although it's interesting - I wonder why this question has remained and the one about housework has been removed?

I suppose it is about travel in some ways as it is about time in different zones that people travel through.

Do you know where I can get an English breakfast to go with that? How much will it cost and if too expensive where can I buy Rice Crispies in Menorca?

I wait until wheels up. Don't want to get confused if there is a delay. I did have an aborted takeoff earlier this year but never had to leave the plane - just a long delay letting the brakes cool.

I recently went back to wearing a watch so I don't have to be anchored to my phone to simply check the time. I picked up a Citizen dual time zone watch that comes in handy for travel. The primary time zone is show on the main hands and a 24 hour dial shows the secondary zone. Pressing both buttons flips them so you don't have to adjust manually. It also has a radio receiver to sync with the atomic clock in Colorado and the others around the world each night so I never have to reset it.
