Re: I'm getting a bit tired of this silliness
From my downvote score above, it looks like you're the only one who couldn't agree more. Other El Registrans clearly like their time exactly thankyouverymuch!
My brother actually bought a "cool" watch in the 1980s that was highly fashionable by being black and shiny - with glowing hands. But the only time marked on it was 12 o'clock (in watch-speak should they be called indexes?), so you could see which way up it was. For any other time, you were literally in the dark.
He got rid of it because he complained that he couldn't tell what time it was. To which my response was, why buy a watch with no numbers in the first place? Now I campaign for imprecise time, I'm all in favour of it...
