Vector Clock provides a fully scalable desktop clock and alarm that can be placed anywhere on your screen, rotated with total freedom, resized to any scale and set in 3D perspective view without losing any quality. The program offers a variety of beautiful faces and colors, from classic to modern.

Runs on:Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder. A third file, clock-name.config will be created when you run the exe.
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the single clock of your choice or one of the installer packages. If an installer, you will need to extract it to a temporary folder, then move the contents of {app} to a folder of your choice.
  2. Select one of the exe files to run and create a blank file using the name of the selected exe and .portable as the file extension. For example, if VectorClock-Roman-Gears.exe is the clock you choose to run, create an empty file named VectorClock-Roman-Gears.portable.
  3. Launch the chosen .exe file.

I just tried one and it no longer appears to be stealth. The individual clocks used to store settings in the application folder as hidden files, but that no longer appears to be the case.

Installation instructions updated. Note that I didn't test the "install as portable" option, which might work fine.

@Jimmy Neutron
Uniextracting the installer works fine. Otherwise, just run the installer, agree the license, choose portable mode and be sure to uncheck all the junk (toolbars etc.) it wants you to install. I will update the entry later.

From the Version History page:

2.20 (24 November 2010)
Clocks installer and uninstaller with option to install clocks as portable

Version 2.20 is now distributed as an installer and can't be opened to reveal or run the individual .EXE files. The "How to Extract" entry should be corrected to reflect the changes in the program's distribution. PS - and the author wants to use PortableFreeware as testimonials on his web page?

Pretty nice looking. I replaced the Vista clock gadget with the gold version of this clock.

Very impressive in terms of looks and customization. Never thought I'd have one of those lame clock things on my desktop before I saw this program.
