@trinsec I don't think it's base 12. On the watch in the photo the number after 07 is 10. With the 1 representing the 8s.
@trinsec Base-12 would need to use additional characters like A and B to represent the additional digits.
So it would probably go like this on a watch:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, 10
@trinsec There's nothing wrong about the leading zeros, at least maths wise, but it certainly looks "strange" since most decimal watches don't use "001, 002, etc".
I really like it for an octal watch, though, because my most common use of octal is in *nix permission strings which are in sets of 3.
