-bw width
choose a different width for the window border. As the Clock widget changes its border around quite a bit, this is most usefully set to zero.
-shape
causes the clock to use the Shape extension to create an oval window. This is the default unless the shapeWindow resource is set to false.
-noshape
causes the clock to not reshape itself and ancestors to exactly fit the outline of the clock.
-transparent
causes the clock to consist only of the jewel, the hands, and the border.

Colours

If you would like your clock to be viewable in colour, include the following in the #ifdef COLOR section of the %HOME%/Xdefaults file:

*customization: -color

This will cause oclock to pick up the colours in the app-defaults color customization file: app-defaults/Clock-color. Below are the default colours:

Clock*Background: grey
Clock*BorderColor: light blue
Clock*hour: yellow
Clock*jewel: yellow
Clock*minute: yellow
