Finding out what time it is is something we all need to do on a daily basis, and if you’re using Windows you need look no further than the notification area of the system tray. But while the clock that is included with Windows is perfectly functional, it has little aesthetic appeal, and if you have opted to hide the taskbar you will find that it is not even visible.

Horloger is an attractive replacement clock that takes the style of an old analogue flip flock by default. There are a number of other skins available, including a miniature version of the main theme, but this is the most impressive looking one. The clock can be configured to start automatically with Windows and you can choose whether minutes, second, or milliseconds should be displayed, and toggle the display and format of the date as well.

To ensure that you can always tell what the time is you can choose to have the clock always appear on top of other open programs and Windows. This may mean that important areas of your screen get covered up, so the option to make the clock slightly transparent is handy. The date bar can also be made transparent or hidden altogether if you would like to reclaim the screen space.

There are three pre-set screen locations to choose from for the clock – top, middle and bottom – but you can also switch to manual positioning mode so you can place it wherever you like. You can then lock the module so it will not be accidentally moved. The app is available for both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows and the download includes both versions in the archive so there is no need to make the choice in advance.

Verdict:

It’s hard not to fall in love with Horloger’s sleek and sexy look which will look great on any desktop.
