Some researchers think the ship's bridge clock was retarded before the collision. David Brown suggested 10 pm. If this is true, there may be major consequences to the story of Titanic as we know it: the 11:40 pm time was adjusted, while most other times were not. Titanic sank faster than assumed. On the other hand, if the clocks were planned to be set back at midnight, this didn't happen because the ship hit an iceberg before the setback, and in the following emergency the clock setback didn't take place. The main reason I'm opening this case is for a chapter of my book: somebody on board knows what's going to happen to the ship, but he passes out in his cabin several hours before the collision. When he wakes up, he reads 11:30 pm on his watch (unadjusted to a possible setback of clocks). He is convinced the iceberg collision is imminent and rushes to the bridge. When he arrives there, what will he see on the bridge clock?
