A wristwatch is not for everybody and only few people are part of Club 24! Accordingly to two separate consumer studies, about only 79% and 86% of the population respectively in U.S. and U.K. own wristwatches (percentages further drop among young people). As per the U.S. study, 76% of the wristwatch owners claim to have an analog watch and most of the time it is based on the 12-hour system. The 12 hour system is what we are all used to; hours are counted from 1 to 12 twice a day and in analog watches a hand indicating the hours makes two complete rotations a day.
We grow up with the 12 hour system and get used to it over time. We are so used to it that we can read a watch even without any numbering or marking system on it. However, the 12 hour system is neither the most intuitive nor the first system that has been introduced to measure the passage of time. Other systems exist and one of the most common (after the 12-hour system) is based on a 24-hour cycle. In those watches the hand which indicates the hours makes a complete rotation in 24 hours – yes, only one rotation per day.
Those watches are used by few people but there is a clear trend with more and more companies developing 24 hour watches. The question is: who is part of “Club 24” (24 hour watch enthusiasts)?
A 24 hour watch is exactly like any common (12 hour) watch with the only difference that in this kind of watch there is one hand that completes a full rotation in 24 hours instead of 12 hours. Most of the 24 hour watches have two hands to indicate the hours: one is based on the standard 12 hours cycle while the second one completes the rotation in 24 hours. Some, instead, have only one hand to indicate the hours and this is the 24 hour hand.
In this post you will see the difference between a 12 hour watch and a 24 hour watch and you might appreciate how to read a 24 hour dial.
