Right click on desktop, select gadgets. The gadgets window will appear. Double click on the gadget you need .

Otherwise, have a look here : Analog desktop clock featuring skins. Replacement of Windows tray clock with skins.

yeah there is a tool that will change your background and reloaded it once a second in order to have a huge clock. I actually saw it mentioned here in the forums but I wasn;t able to quick search the forums for it :/

that's a rainmeter skin, but i don't know which one.

try googling rainmeter skins and look and see.

it's quite easy to make a custom skin of your own, if you're into some gentle light coding.
