This alternative clock is not really readable by human. It calculates the first 𝟣𝟦𝟦 [1] primes, assigns 𝟨𝟢 of them to every possible second, 𝟨𝟢 to every possible minute and 𝟤𝟦 to every possible hour.
Multiplying those three primes for a given time results in a composite number representing said time. Using integer factorization, you then can get the three primes back, map them to seconds, minutes and hours, and by doing so calculate the time.
