When you set the time ahead on Apple Watch, it does not change the time on your iPhone. Your handset will still show the real Internet synchronized time for your time zone. This only changes the time display on the watch face. Notifications, reminders, alarms, world clock and other app-based times will still match the actual time.
To advance the clock on the Apple Watch, press the Digital Crown on your Apple Watch. In the apps list, select the Settings app.
Scroll down here and select the “Clock” option. Now tap the “+0” button.
You can now turn the Digital Crown to advance the time. You can advance the watch between 1 and 60 minutes.
When you are satisfied, tap the “Set” button.
When you go back to the watch face, you will see the updated time. As you can see in the screenshot below, this feature only changes the time on the watch face and not apps.
You can go back to the “Clock” section in the Settings menu to reset the clock to the actual time.
