there are many benefits of this time piece favourites being, my child learned to tell time on it, a great talking point and I’ve started gifting it to newly weds and friends moving to new homes.

This attention-grabbing back to front wall clock makes a great home or office gift for someone who always claims that time is against them.

This change meant that people would be using less coal for domestic use, thus increasing the supplies available for supporting the war.

A 2019 YouGov poll found that the majority of Brits were marginally in favour of keeping DST, however, with 44 per cent electing to keep the current system, while 39 per cent voted in favour of ditching the change.

Making sure time is always on your side, the Backwards Clock shows the numbers going from 12 all the way round to one, with the three hand movement working anticlockwise. Charlie Morley, author of Wake Up to Sleep, cites a 2014 study by the College of Cardiology, which reported a significant drop in heart attacks in the 24 hours immediately following turning back the clocks. There is no doubt that by foregoing the DST in winter we would save a lot of energy, reduce our bills and carbon emissions during this energy war, especially during a cost of living crisis.

The UK first introduced Daylight Saving Time in 1916 when the government introduced British Summer Time (BST) to encourage people to spend more time outdoors in daylight. That time of year is nearly upon us again where the clocks will change, and yes, this is the good one where you get an extra hour in bed. During winter, evening energy demand peaks between 5pm and 7pm, with UK households potentially facing three-hour power cuts this winter, the National Grid has warned, due to a shortage of gas. It is lightweight and potentially fragile although this should rarely be an issue given that it is wall mounted. However, with the onset of the busy Christmas period, the damage done by the shorter evenings could be reverted.

Despite this, a spokesperson for Sleep School, a science-based sleep education and therapy service, told The Independent that it is “impartial” on the extent to which the clocks changing impacts sleep, arguing that the important factor is the duration of time asleep and a consistent schedule. William Willett first introduced the idea of Daylight Saving Time (later to be coined British Summer Time) in 1907.Visitors will be baffled by its perfect resemblance to a standard wall clock until they realise the big difference – everything is in reverse.

One hour sounds like an insignificant amount of time, but it can completely throw our circadian rhythm, or more simply known as internal clock, off balance,” he says. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. In the UK the clocks go forward 1 hour at 1am on the last Sunday in March, and back 1 hour at 2am on the last Sunday in October. I bought it for a present but have decided to keep it for myself and find something else that is so unusual. By simply foregoing the winter DST in October, we save energy because it is brighter in the evening during winter, so we reduce commercial and residential electrical demand as people leave work earlier, and go home earlier, meaning less lighting and heating is needed,” she said.As he is left handed, he may get the hang of it quickly, but it's quirky and fun, and will be a talking point when anyone comes to visit.
