Sorry for the late answer. I had to look into this. The color of the clock font changes but not the the value it is set to. For example if I set the font color to absolute black r/g/b=0/0/0 values the font color will be 72/72/72, not absolute black but dark gray. If I set the font color to blue r/g/b=0/0/255 the font color will be 71/71/253, lighter blue. I took screenshots of the clock and determined the font color by using GIMP color picker.

Is there a way to fix this?
