This one’s pretty simple.  Western-style clock with Chinese numbers, meant to be read from top to bottom for the double digits.  In clockwise order:
一 yī one (1)
二 èr two (2)
三 sān three (3)
四 sì four (4)
五 wǔ five (5)
六 liù six (6)
七 qī seven (7)
八 bā eight (8)
九 jiǔ nine (9)
十 shí ten (10)
十一 shíyī eleven (11)
十二 shí’èr twelve (12)
I won’t go into too many details about how time works in Chinese, but as always you can click on the pinyin, or the romanization of the Chinese sounds, to hear how the word is pronounced and learn to count from 1 to 12 at least :)
There are characters on the inside of the clock face (by the dials) written in what looks like seal script Chinese, so if anyone happens to be able to read that I would very much appreciate the assistance.
Hope you’re all doing well :)
