In this tutorial written by Martin Angelov we're going to create a realistic Digital Clock using CSS3 and jQuery, which comes with 2 stylish themes: dark and light.

How to use it:

1. The HTML

<div id="clock" class="light">
<div class="display">
<div class="weekdays"></div>
<div class="ampm"></div>
<div class="alarm"></div>
<div class="digits"></div>
</div>
</div>

2. The CSS

#clock{
	width:370px;
	padding:40px;
	margin:200px auto 60px;
	position:relative;
}

#clock:after{
	content:'';
	position:absolute;
	width:400px;
	height:20px;
	border-radius:100%;
	left:50%;
	margin-left:-200px;
	bottom:2px;
	z-index:-1;
}


#clock .display{
	text-align:center;
	padding: 40px 20px 20px;
	border-radius:6px;
	position:relative;
	height: 54px;
}

}

	background-color:#272e38;
	border-color:#272e38;	
}

#clock.light .digits div.dots:before,

3. Include jQuery library and Moment.js on the page

<script src="http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/moment.js/2.0.0/moment.min.js"></script>

4. The javascript

$(function(){

// Cache some selectors

var clock = $('#clock'),
alarm = clock.find('.alarm'),
ampm = clock.find('.ampm');

// Map digits to their names (this will be an array)
var digit_to_name = 'zero one two three four five six seven eight nine'.split(' ');

// This object will hold the digit elements
var digits = {};

// Positions for the hours, minutes, and seconds
var positions = [
'h1', 'h2', ':', 'm1', 'm2', ':', 's1', 's2'
];

// Generate the digits with the needed markup,
// and add them to the clock

var digit_holder = clock.find('.digits');

$.each(positions, function(){

if(this == ':'){
digit_holder.append('<div class="dots">');
}
else{

var pos = $('<div>');

for(var i=1; i<8; i++){
pos.append('<span class="d' + i + '">');
}

// Set the digits as key:value pairs in the digits object
digits[this] = pos;

// Add the digit elements to the page
digit_holder.append(pos);
}

});

// Add the weekday names

var weekday_names = 'MON TUE WED THU FRI SAT SUN'.split(' '),
weekday_holder = clock.find('.weekdays');

$.each(weekday_names, function(){
weekday_holder.append('<span>' + this + '</span>');
});

var weekdays = clock.find('.weekdays span');


// Run a timer every second and update the clock

(function update_time(){

// Use moment.js to output the current time as a string
// hh is for the hours in 12-hour format,
// mm - minutes, ss-seconds (all with leading zeroes),
// d is for day of week and A is for AM/PM

var now = moment().format("hhmmssdA");

digits.h1.attr('class', digit_to_name[now[0]]);
digits.h2.attr('class', digit_to_name[now[1]]);
digits.m1.attr('class', digit_to_name[now[2]]);
digits.m2.attr('class', digit_to_name[now[3]]);
digits.s1.attr('class', digit_to_name[now[4]]);
digits.s2.attr('class', digit_to_name[now[5]]);

// The library returns Sunday as the first day of the week.
// Stupid, I know. Lets shift all the days one position down, 
// and make Sunday last

var dow = now[6];
dow--;

// Sunday!
if(dow < 0){
// Make it last
dow = 6;
}

// Mark the active day of the week
weekdays.removeClass('active').eq(dow).addClass('active');

// Set the am/pm text:
ampm.text(now[7]+now[8]);

// Schedule this function to be run again in 1 sec
setTimeout(update_time, 1000);

})();

});
