How to change the font of windows clock?

I was googling for a long time, but did not find an accurate answer...
Is it possible to change the clock font (make it bigger actually) without installing any widgets, skins etc?

Welcome to the Seven Forums
The only way I know how to do it is to use Windows Style Builder and that one individual font can be changed, I have Windows style builder and can change that for you if you are using the default Aero theme. This will be a custom theme and you will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
Or
Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes
Let me know if this is something you would like to.

Yes in basic it can but not in Classic. You would still need to do 1 of them 2 guide listed above, because the basic theme is still controlled by the Aero theme.
The original font is Segoe UI size is 9, I can change the font, font size or the font color or all three.
Let me know

If the base is 9 i think 12-14 would be perfect. Just call it clock. Thank u !
