When does the end point of a 12 hour clock occur?

On a 12-hour clock, the “end point” comes around twice, i.e. at noon and at midnight, and the switch from AM to PM occurs then. So, from midnight (12:00:00 AM, or 0) to 11:59:59 AM is the first 12 hours (AM), and 12:00:00 PM (or 0) to 11:59:59 PM is the next 12 hours (PM), representing the second half of the day. And, as you know: 12 + 12 = 24

Which is correct 11 am or 1 hour?

If so, it would be representing 12 hours time unit, and it switches after numerical overflows 12. Then, 11:00 am + 1 hour should be 12:00 am or 0:00 pm, not 12:00 pm. What knowledge am I missing?
