When I were nobbut a lad, we had one timepiece: an alarm clock which my Dad wound every night and put by his bed, then brought down to the mantelpiece every morning. Neither parent owned a watch. We weren't especially poor; it was just the way things were.
Today, in our house with just the two of us, there are 27 timepieces, including those which need the time of day to work, such as heating timers.
3 of them we just leave because an hour either way doesn't matter;
11 are automatic (phones, computers and radio clocks)
13 have to be adjusted manually, but not necessarily today because they're watches we don't use all the time.
