Watch with a 24-hour analog dial have an hour hand that makes one complete revolution, 360°, in a day (24 hours per revolution).
The more familiar 12-hour analog dial has an hour hand that makes two complete revolutions in a day (12 hours per revolution).
Twenty-four-hour analog watches are used today by pilots, scientists, and the militaries, and are sometimes preferred because of the unambiguous representation of a whole day at one time. Note that this definition refers to the use of a complete circular dial to represent a 24-hour day. Using the numbers from 1 to 24 to mark the day is the 24-hour watch system.

Single hand watch may appear unconventional or even strange to many of us today, but telling the time using just a single hand was, in fact, the normal way when pocket watches were introduced in the early 16th century. In fact timekeeping began with just a single hand, sundials and the early church clocks kept time this way.
So the single hand watch is continuing an ages-old method of measuring time.
The introduction of a second hand must have seemed as odd to people in the late 17th century as single hand watches appear to us today. By having a design that recalls
the early timepieces, single hand watches are imbued with a sense of classicism whilst drawing attention to the early origins of the watchmakers craft.

The backward watch brings about a new challenge in time telling. This watch features counter-clockwise movement with a dial printed in reverse.
It may seem complicated at first, but all the same rules of telling time apply. Just read the hour hand, and then the minute hand.
