Acclaim, losing no time (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

hour

Here is my best explanation:

'time' is the definition.

(hour is a kind of time)

'acclaim losing no' is the subsidiary indication.

'acclaim' becomes 'honour' (I've seen this before).

'losing' indicates named letters should be taken away.

'honour' with 'no' taken out is 'hour'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for hour that I've seen before include "Clock time", "Length of time", "See 12", "See 24", "Part of day", "A 24th of a day", "60 minutes", "When it cometh, so doth the man!", "60 14 acrosses" and "Three thousand and six hundred seconds".)
