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

What size of the font would you like.
Do you have a name you would like to call this custom theme or would you like me to come up with one.

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

Here you go download the zip folder at the bottom of this post extracted to your desktop, open the Clock folder.

Put the 2 highlighted in red 1 Clock folder and 1 Clock.theme file in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
Open the green highlighted Basic folder
Put the 1 highlighted in green 1 Clock.theme file in C:\Windows\Resources\Ease of Access Themes
-2.png-3.png

It will show up in Personalization as Clock in both Installed Theme and Basic and High Contrast Theme.
