I always wondered what most people preferred. Even though I鈥檝e been in jobs for many years where 24 hour time was used, I just like having the 鈥榦l am/pm on my wrist.聽

Personally I guess I like it to match whatever device (PC at work or my iPhone) I鈥檓 looking at during the day; p鈥檙aps I just enjoy more of the LCD being lit up with the 24H indicator 馃槀

(shhh That鈥檚 the only reason I put the alarm flash function on 鈥榗os the symbol looks cool 馃槈)

Anything that has a 24h option gets switched to 24h if I own/use it.聽

12 hour time makes sense on an analog clock/watch, but it makes zero sense on a digital clock/watch in my mind.聽

When I used to wear digital watches back in my college days, I'd use the AM/PM function. Now, I prefer and choose not to wear any digital watches, as for me it is counter-intuitive compared to an analog dial, where you can visually immediately see how much time you have left until the top of the hour. 聽

I definitely notice a mental shift when I go from wearing an auto or even analog dial G back to a digital display. It鈥檚 like I have to take a second to think what do those numbers mean? Then I really appreciate the sweep seconds hand when I shift back to an automatic (no hand-wind only pieces yet); it鈥檚 like a familiar, comfy pair of slippers 馃槈馃嵒

Yep! All my digital stuff is set to 24H without exception 馃嵒馃憤

24hrs. Been using this format since I was 18. Lol. Apply to all my digital watches and my phone.聽

For me when I wear my #casio #gshock it鈥檚 24H all the way! 聽It adds a level of cool & military/adventure feel and for me that ups my level of enjoyment even more 馃榿
