Digital Dutch Windows Clock

Digital Dutch ClockThe Digital Dutch clock is an improved version of the Windows desktop gadget clock. The original Windows clock misses several options like a digital clock, date and day indications. It has also improved animations.


  • Show digital clock option.
  • Show day option.
  • Show date option.
  • Smooth seconds hand option. It makes the seconds hand slide instead of tick. Note, that this requires more CPU resources.
  • Day animation at startup and at 24:00. Although I doubt that anyone will notice the latter as it only happens for a few seconds every 24 hours.
  • Date animation at startup and at 24:00.
  • Improved hour, minute and second clock hand animations.
  • For all skins: improved colors and fonts.
  • Uses less CPU resources than the original Windows Vista clock.
  • Localization support added. (Czech, Dutch, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Turkish translations included)
  • Compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.
