SEVASTOPOL, March 30, /ITAR-TASS/. The main clock in the Russian federal city of Sevastopol - the chimes placed on Matrossky club were moved at 2am former local time to Moscow time (4am).
“We expected agitation and closer attention, but few people gathered there,” horologist Boris Achkinazi told Itar-Tass. “I believe that that was caused by the fact that we had moved the clocks very late. We have shifted the time at 9pm to midnight in Moscow in the Crimean capital city of Simferopol. But people will wake up in the morning already at the time new for Crimea,” he noted.
Before the transfer of the time on the chimes the horologist told reporters about the procedure and showed the mechanism of the main clock in the city of Sevastopol. “Time movement is not a complicated procedure at all. We planned a shift to summer time as it was common practice in Ukraine. But now instead of one hour we moved the clocks two hours forward,” he added.
Sevastopol lawmakers decided to shift to Moscow time on March 25. The parliamentary resolution holds that “railway, water, air, international motor traffic, operation of international telephone, telegraph communications, all enterprises, agencies and organisations in the federal city of Sevastopol” will be done at Moscow time starting from March 30.
Meanwhile, Sevastopol city authorities permitted to kindergartens, schools and other enterprises to start working on March 30 one hour later, as the clocks were moved two hours forward.
Watchmakers from plant Era have produced the mechanism of chimes at Morsky club in the city of Sevastopol. The chimes were made as a replica of the chimes placed at a building in the Ukrainian Black Sea city of Odessa, watchmaker Achkinazi said. In the nineties the chimes broke down and its repair began only in 2007. Its restoration took around 1.5 years and its musical device was repaired in the autumn of 2013. Now Sevastopol chimes are controlled by a special electronic and mechanical apparatus.
