Thank you for your feedback.

It uses the 24 hour setting from the system settings: settings / Date & Time / Use 24-hour format.

But I had some inconsistencies with this, so it might be wrong by default. When this setting has never been changed I cannot read a true/false status, but read a "null" value. When this happens I default to the am/pm format. A quick way around this is to go into the settings and tick the 24-hour tickbox and then untick it again.
The inconsistency is that on some phones the "null" defaults to am/pm format and on others to 24-hour format.

Has anyone else experienced this?

That's great.

In order to investigate this inconsistency, could you provide me with some info?

What phone do you have and what Android version (and rom if any) do you have. Could you also tell me if the 24-hour tickbox was enabled by default or not?
Much appreciated.

In order to make it bigger, the animation will get bigger exponentially. This will eat away more memory so I am not 100% sure I can achieve this. I will have a look how far I can stretch it, but with the current size I felt comfortable it will run on most phones.

I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (R800i), with Android 2.3.3, no root and no custom rom, locked bootloader.

Because i am from Germany, and we always use "Military-Time", my 24-hour tickbox was enabled by default.

Thank you very much. I will compile a list of occurrences and see if I can find a pattern.
