    12 Vs 24 What is your Preference?

    What is your Preference? 24hr military time or standard 12 hr time on your digital watch.
    I personally use 24hr time on all my Casio. Not that I am in service but since most of analog watch can't do 24hr time. When I use digital watch, I set it to 24.

    Hopefully this question did not asked before, I couldn't find it under search.

    I always preferred 12 hr time, but after spending WAY TOO much time on this forum, and seeing how 24hr time is used around the world, I've converted. But...I'll NOT use the metric system. Afterall, I'm a TEXAN, damnit!

    I use the 12 hr format, it just seems natural to me.

    I use both.

    I'm a police officer and generally use the 24 hour format whilst at work.

    At home, however, I prefer to use the 12 hour format.

    Fortunately it's not too fiddly to change between modes on my G's.

    I set all my digital gadgets to 24h time. Also not a man in service.

    My vote goes for 24hr. Not in military. I like the fact that every hour is a different number. It just makes sense to me.

    I like the 24 hr format better, I'm a LEO and it's the one I'm used to.

    wow, y'all complicate things. Ignore the "1" and just subtract 2. That's pretty simple math, if you ask me.
