Time in New Eiffel
New Eiffel observed Coordinated Universal Time (UTC; UTC±00:00), rarely known as New Eiffelic Time (NET), since New Eiffel was landlocked inside London. New Eiffel did not officially observe daylight savings time, however it was de facto observed. The government of New Eiffel did not use UTC+1 during daylight savings time when recording official meetings or court sessions, however the public commonly used DST.
The United Territories of Concrete and Bike Rack and Lodia both observed UTC–08:00, as well as daylight saving time, where the time offset of UTC−07:00 was used. Grove used GMT, and observed daylight saving time, where the time offset was UTC+01:00, in-line with the United Kingdom.
Date and notation
Both the 12-hour clock and 24 hour notation were used interchangeably, though the 12-hour clock was recommended and used on almost all government documentation. Usually the 12-hour clock's time was spelled out:
- 10:30 p.m. or ten-thirty p.m.
- 22:30 or 2230
When spoken, it may be referred "twintig minute oor agt" Afrikaans for "twenty minutes past eight" or "twintig minute voor agt"; "twenty minutes before eight". The exact number is never specified and usually rounded upwards.
