No.  There are 24 hr analog clock themes.  If you want to remove 24 hr
analog clocks, then your only choice is to stop supporting clock themes.
And I do not approve of that.

  Analog clock 24 hour configuration

Bug description:
  This is somewhat related to bug #508547 in the sense that a 24 hour analog clock is a terribly odd sight even for countries using the 24h system. However, since it seems not possible to have the analog and digital clock configured separately(?), I do have a suggestion.

Basically: 12-24 switching for the analog clock should also be done through the option like the one used for the digital one, not by selecting a theme.

Let me sketch the situation:
I have the clock set as digital and with 24h system on. Now if I feel like switching to analog. After doing so the clock will have the weird 24 hour look, but no biggy there, I'll just right click and turn "24-hour clock" off, right? Wrong! That option is blanked out. Instead, I have to pick select theme to switch back to the 12-hour clock. Seems a bit counter intuitive, no? Especially since changing the theme -also- sets the 24h option off.

Note: I think if you plan on adding more clock themes, it would be better to make a 12h and 24h version of each of them and allowing switching between those through the actual option rather than having two themes mentioned.
