-bd border color

Causes the clock to consist only of the jewel, the hands, and the border.


If you want to be able to view your clock in color, include the following in the #ifdef COLOR section you read with xrdb(1):

*customization:				 -color

This will cause oclock to pick up the colors in the app-defaults color customization file: /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/Clock-color. The default colors are as follows:

Clock*Background: grey
Clock*BorderColor: light blue
Clock*hour: yellow
Clock*jewel: yellow
Clock*minute: yellow
