I’ve posted some styles for the Gnome panel Clock Applet before and some of you responded with your own in the comments to these posts. Some were really darn good so i’ve made a compilation of the best!

There is a short re-cap at the bottom on how to install these themes, and if you have any more great ones to share please do and I’ll update the post!
