How do they tell time? Seriously, I've never seen anybody on a landing party wear a watch, but they always manage to know what time it is.

"Meet back here at 1700 hours."

"We have only six hours before this planet explodes!"

Etc.

maybe it's on their PADDs or tricorders the way it's on our cell phones?
But not everybody on the landing party carries a tricorder. (Often it's just Spock.) And they didn't even have PADDs on TOS . . . just electronic clipboards that they usually left back on the ship.

It's a puzzlement.
