Clocks of History
Contest Directions: Past weekend was the time to reset the clocks again as Daylight Saving Time begins. Each year we lose an hour of sleep as we "Spring Forward" and turn the hands ahead one hour. Daylight Saving Time was instituted in the United States during World War I in order to save energy for war production by taking advantage of the later hours of daylight between April and October. Daylight Savings Time (DST) begins each year at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March in most of the United States and its territories. However there are some places that have not bought into this campaign - it is not observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands nor the state of Arizona except for the Navajo Indian Reservation, which does observe DST.
Since the Daylight Savings Time campaign has its roots in history, let's design some unusual historic clocks - take any clocks (or watches) and change hours for years in the history of any country or celebrity. You are welcome to use any range of years (and the items of the clock face don't have to add up to 12 either) and preferably show some pictures next to the years that signify some important (or not so important) events in the history of any country or celebrity. Many thanks to TheNutter for the themepost.
