A time object represents a time quantity that is independent of any particular day, and assumes that every day has exactly 24*60*60 seconds. The time class does not have any date information.

We can instantiate a time object using the time(hour, minute, second, microsecond) constructor.

If none of the arguments are provided the time will default to 00:00:00.

from datetime import time
a = time()
# time(hour, minute, second, microsecond)
b = time(12,12,12,12)
print(a)
print(b)
print(type(b))
a = 00:00:00
b = 12:12:12.000012
Type b = <class 'datetime.time'>

Class Attributes

time.hour, time.minute, time.second, time.microsecond

from datetime import time

# time(hour, minute, second, microsecond)
a = time(1,2,3,4)

print("Hour = ", a.hour)
print("Minutes = ", a.minute)
print("Seconds = ", a.second)
print("Microseconds = ", a.microsecond)
Hour = 1
Minutes = 2
Seconds = 3
Microseconds = 4

time.tzinfo

This attribute stores the timezone information for the time object.

Naive Time Object

from datetime import time

# time(hour, minute, second, microsecond)
a = time(1,2,3,4)

print(a.tzinfo)
None

Aware Time Object

from datetime import time
from pytz import timezone

# time(hour, minute, second, microsecond)
a = time(1,2,3,4)

# Associating the time with UTC timezone
b = timezone('UTC').localize(a)

print(b.tzinfo)
UTC
