Bug Description

There is no reason to display the leading zero in the time values under Clock, Alarm, or Timer. However, it seems acceptable and standard practice to do so for a Stopwatch.

Difficulty: EASY

-------- Desired Solution -----------
- In clock and alarm tab, show the leading zero in 24-hour format only. While in 12-hour mode, do not show the leading zero.

- For timer, remove the leading zero at all times.

- Stopwatch remains untouched.

Actually on looking at some common patterns (like the android clock), I noticed the following,

In 24-hour clock, the leading zero is always shown for clock and alarms. While in 12-hour mode (AM/PM) the leading zero is not shown. I think we should follow that format in the ubuntu clock app as well.
