I just assumed that everyone read clocks by doing the 5, 10, 15, 20 thing. I mean, what about the little numbers? So some people can look and know its 2:15 or 2:30 easily enough. But what if its 2:13? or 2:43? Don't they have to count then?


Count the little tick marks, yes. If there are none, pretend there are tickmarks.

I know 15, 30, and 45, and work from there. I never had any substantial problem with it.

It took me a long, long time as a kid to learn how to tell time on an analog clock. I still have trouble knowing what hour it is, so I still have to rely on digital clocks. Sad, but part of my NVLD.

I like 24 hour time and digits not dials. It does take me longer to read a dial clock.
And i would not pay 5k for a watch when a 50 usd digital watch gives better timekeeping.
