I'd like the option to see times displayed in 24-hr format ... because I'm the sort of sad-sack who winces when he sees "04:30pm" ...

It's very handy when you're working across time zones. As well as being a computer geek and clueless photographer, I'm a radio amateur, so I'm used to using 1630 hrs UTC (or Zulu), but if it's tea and scones it's still 4.15 :)

hey! it's not just the military/industrial complex, but, for instance, most of Europe-- even if we say "half past four in the afternoon" we need to see "16:30" to tell us that

What about a 1982 French movie named Quarter to two BC ?
Same country, spelling out sixteen-fourty-six instead of quarter to fivish is not military-industrial, but taunted as the railroad attendants' complex...

As for 24 hours displays, there are some rare analog watches. Great photographer's tool to check where/when the sun will be, if you're familiar with the solar compass trick.
Good enough to bring Charles Lindbergh across the Atlantic...
