Microsoft made it very easy to display a complete clock.

With modern screens typically twice as wide as they are high why does anyone continue to waste precious screen height with a horizontal task bar?? Simply grab some open space and drag it to the side! Not only is this much more efficient but you gain ~3/4" of screen height for all your apps. This arrangement also lends itself to custom toolbar groupings

On my 2560 x 1080 screen my taskbar is ~150 pixels wide I have four custom toolbars that can hold ~170 icons plus the system tray and columns of eight active tasks. (I'm lazy! It was quicker to just widen the task bar a bit than to cull the lesser used apps). Even half my current width would still display the time, date and DOW. Here is a shot of the bottom third of my taskbar.
