A Gaianar clock has a hand for hours, turns, and rounds. Thus, the hours cycle from 1 to 12, the turns cycle from 1 to 6, and the rounds cycle from 1 to 10. Some watches have a segment hand that clicks from 1 to 20. A tower clock or wrist watch would thus have a large outer dial in which the hours and turns cycle (1-12 and 1-6, since they are divisible into one another), and an inner dial in which the rounds and segments cycle (again because 1-20 and 1-10 are evenly divisible).
Certain times of day are also named. Just as "noon" is a name for 12:00pm, and "midnight" is a name for 12:00am, the time conventions for Gaianar also have named times of day and night, as shown below.
