Prerequisites: Turtle Programming in Python
Turtle is a special feature of Python. Using Turtle, we can easily draw on a drawing board. First, we import the turtle module. Then create a window, next we create a turtle object and using the turtle methods we can draw in the drawing board.
Installation: To install this module type the below command in the terminal. 
 

pip install turtle

Note: To create a clock we will use the ‘time’ and ‘DateTime’ module of Python also, To install time use the following command:

Below is the implementation. 
 

Python3




import time
import datetime as dt
import turtle
  
     
# create a turtle to display time
t = turtle.Turtle()
 
# create a turtle to create rectangle box
t1 = turtle.Turtle()
 
# create screen
s = turtle.Screen()
 
# set background color of the screen
s.bgcolor("green")
  
# obtain current hour, minute and second
# from the system
sec = dt.datetime.now().second
min = dt.datetime.now().minute
hr = dt.datetime.now().hour
t1.pensize(3)
t1.color('black')
t1.penup()
  
# set the position of turtle
t1.goto(-20, 0)
t1.pendown()
  
# create rectangular box
for i in range(2):
    t1.forward(200)
    t1.left(90)
    t1.forward(70)
    t1.left(90)
     
# hide the turtle
t1.hideturtle()
 
while True:
    t.hideturtle()
    t.clear()
    # display the time
    t.write(str(hr).zfill(2)
            +":"+str(min).zfill(2)+":"
            +str(sec).zfill(2),
            font =("Arial Narrow", 35, "bold"))
    time.sleep(1)
    sec+= 1
     
    if sec == 60:
        sec = 0
        min+= 1
     
    if min == 60:
        min = 0
        hr+= 1
     
    if hr == 13:
        hr = 1


Output:
