That's freaking awesome!
And come on, if after owning the clock for a day or two you can't approximate how closely the hands are to forming the letters withing (a very generous) fifteen minutes, you probably should just have a big digital watch anyway and forget the "hands" style altogether :)
This is a very clever art piece.
