12hr or 24hr Clock Format?

Other

I've been using the 12hr format pretty much on all devices that I can as it is more precise than the 24hr one, but some only display 24hr so can't change that. Oh well.

Saying "20:30" just doesn't sound right whereas "8:30" (AM or PM) does.

More used to 24 hour as I was in the Navy many years ago and the military always use it. My work rota is always 24 hour too. Boss puts 1000 to 1130 and then later 1315 to 1715 etc.

I prefer the 24 hr format, as that way you don’t need to refer to am or pm. I think it’s universally clearer, as I often find other countries prefer that format as well

I tend to use the 24hr clock on my devices. But, like a traditional 12hr face on a clockwork watch ⌚
