One-one-thousand, two-one-thousand, three ...

                                  or 

One - one - thousand, two - one - thousand, three ...

Dashes are created to create asides. Hyphens are used to make multiple words into one term. It should be a hyphen with no space after or before. So use the first one.

Thank you! 

'One one thousand, two one thousand, three one thousand' and 'one one-thousand, two one-thousand, three one-thousand' seem to be the correct way to write this.

Yes, that's right because the one-thousand is two words that have become one just like mother-in-law.

 

Thank You Both...It was great help. I hate looking up English questions while the writing is moving quickly. I did, but I din't understand, so it was great help from you guys...
