Fall Back This Weekend — and Fall in Love With This Pocket Watch Clock Giveaway

Uncategorized | | | 59 Replies

Autumn truly feels like it’s here, given that we’re going to “fall” back this weekend, thanks to Daylight Savings Time. Make sure to turn your clocks back tonight. And while Daylight Savings Time is officially scheduled each year for 2 in the morning on Sunday, we won’t tell anyone if you do it after you wake up tomorrow morning. Check out these fun facts about Daylight Savings Time:

  • Benjamin Franklin is credited with the idea of Daylight Saving Time, though it wasn’t instituted while he was alive.
  • It wasn’t until 1895 that George Vernon Hudson reintroduced the concept. Why’d he do so? He wanted more time for his insect collecting hobby!
  • The first official Daylight Savings mandate occurred during World War I.
  • The Uniform Time Act of 1966 made Daylight Savings Time a standard practice

To mark the occasion we’re giving away 5 of our Small Pocket Watch Clocks. Our handsome timepiece recalls an antique English pocketwatch that one of our designers inherited from his great-grandfather, and features a case crafted in brass as well as subtly stylized black Roman numerals  that stand out against a bright white dial.

For a chance to win one of our Small Pocket Watch Clocks, simply fill out the form below and we’ll pick 5 winners at random.  (You can read the official rules here.)

Thank you for reading, this contest is now closed.

    I think that even though I can’t afford the majority of the items sold at Pottery Barn, it doesn’t hurt to look… I LOVE and look forward to see the beautiful posts everyday.

    Love the charm of this clock — I have one of your larger ones like this, but think the smaller one is adorable! Great style!
