Dau ddeg is 20; deuddeg is 12.

Ordinal numbers follow the traditional vigesimal system, whereas most other things are base-10 like English is these days. Dau ddeg is literally 2 10; 12 could also be written as un deg dau (literally 1 10 2), but you're unlikely to see the time written like that.

The "old system" is used when counting for telling the time and with money.
