Step1.

Add CSS

Set the colour and the position of the background and elements:

body {
  height: 100vh;
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;

.clock {
  position: relative;
  width: 350px;
  height: 350px;

Pure CSS Clock Animation

Animate the second hand using the CSS steps() Function:

Add on the end of the .seconds:before the following properties:

animation: sec 60s infinite;
animation-timing-function: steps(60,end);

and @keyframes:

@keyframes sec {
  from {transform: rotate(0);}
  to {transform: rotate(360deg);}
}

Add the shadow:

.clock:before, .clock:after {
  content:"";
  position: absolute;
  
}

.clock:before {
  width:280px;
  height: 305px;
  top:60px;
  left: 75px;
  transform: skew(40deg, -13.5deg);
  background-color: #6f9487;
}

.clock:after {
  background-color: #94d2bd;
  width:300px;
  height:300px;
  transform: rotate(-65deg) skew(-5deg);
  left:-110px;
  top:-65px;
}

.shadow {
  position: absolute;  
}

.shadow:before, .shadow:after {
  content:"";
  position: absolute;
  height: 0;
  z-index:1;
  border-right: 45px solid transparent;
  top:-170px;
}

.shadow:before {
  border-bottom: 50px solid #6f9487;
  left:177px;
  width:10px;
}

.shadow:after {
  border-bottom: 50px solid #6f9487;
  left:130px;
  width:20px;
}
