    That's how you know you're getting old. You can remember analog clocks.

    I am happy to say that 109 of my 110 clocks are analogue. Several of them need to be wound up regularly.

    Ironically, the only digital beast I have is the radio-controlled one I use to check the accuracy of all the others.

    I only have two--both digital. One is on my radio. The other I am holding in my hand.

    Now I have to count mine, of course! I've got one analogue on the kitchen wall, and six digital - laptop, mobile, fitness tracker, digital radio, landline handset and heating thermostat. I don't currently own a working watch (though that's what I use my fitness tracker for, I guess).

    They say a man with two clocks is never sure what time it is. But, 110!

    Re: 21.00 twenty-one (hundred) hours

    I remember being on playground duty one afternoon when a little five-year-old boy came over to me and proudly said 'I've got a new watch, Mr Rover*'.

    'That's nice, Robert,*' I said. 'What time is it?'

    Peering closely at the screen, he slowly read out 'One, four, dot dot, nothing, seven'.

    *Not our real names.

    The digital clocks on my phone, computer, television, car, and clock radio as well as the wall clock in the kitchen will all reset automatically. My pocket watch will be the only one to need setting manually. All the digital clocks are set to a 24 hour display.
