Geometry/Analog Clock Design - Anticlockwise motion.
Dear Prof Azeem
The 12 hour Analog Clock design attached in the figure will also
work ?. The seconds hand dial will move in anticlockwise direction.
The clock time displayed in the image can be interpreted as
2 hours : 50 minutes.
Similarly 24 hour clock will have 0-23 dials. the 0-23 dials will be in respectively as attached in the figure.
If such clocks are designed and manufactured by clock manufacturers will it be accepted by the consumers ?.
Do the above design has any flaws ?. Counterclockwise motion will be not accepted by the consumers because clockwise design looks more perfect design among the two regarding the comfort level for interpreting numbers displayed ?.
Awaiting your reply,
Thanks & Regards,

This is another question that is a matter of convention. Clocks move as they do to mimic the movement of a shadow on a sundial, as viewed in the Northern Hemisphere. The clocks you mention here would likely not be accepted by consumers because they run contrary to the convention.
