Proposed move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.


Adjectival phrases in English get hyphenated, unless I'm missing some bit of information known to timepiece connoisseurs. I see the same lack of hyphenation in 24 hour analog dial. I'm proposing to move them both to the hyphenated "24-hour" versions.

  • Support per English grammar. Seems to be uncontroversial. Dekimasuよ! 00:48, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

This article has been renamed from 24 hour watch to 24-hour watch as the result of a move request. --Stemonitis 07:26, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Merge with 24-hour clock[edit]

Both this article and 24-hour clock as well as 24-hour analog dial that all covers 24-hour watches, and it seems confusing and entirely unnecessary to have these separated (which can be seen by the amount of repeated content among these 3 articles). -- Egil (talk) 12:13, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Merge- The resultant article should have a separate section for the analog dial, covering clocks and watches, because that is separate from (although clearly dependent on) the convention of numbering hours from 0 to 23. Mitch Ames (talk) 13:01, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Merge as above, analogue dial can have a section in 24-hour watch. Joseph2302 (talk) 01:40, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Merge This should really just be a section of the other article. RevelationDirect (talk) 17:22, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Only merge two ways, 24-hour watch and 24-hour analog dial. It seems there are really two separate subjects for discussion here. One on the use of written timestamps from 00:00 through 23:59 or 24:00, and the second on analog clock faces. As the Venice tower and Ottery St. Mary clocks show, it's even possible to have the latter without former. So while I'd definitely merge the lock-face discussion, I'd consider keeping 24-hour clock separate, and remove all the pictures of 24-hour clock faces from it. Except for one, illustrating a section with a {{main}} link that mentions 24-hour clock faces. I'm not strongly averse to a 3-way merge, but there seems to be enough material for two articles here. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 21:55, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
