1 hour back or ahead?

The clock moves ahead (= losing one hour) in the spring when DST starts, and falls back one hour (= gaining one hour) when DST ends in the fall. To remember which way to set your watch, keep in mind one of these sayings:“Spring forward, fall back” or “Spring ahead, fall behind.”
