First of all, I found my source material by doing an image search on Google:

First I started out with a simple cube. Sized to the dimensions I wanted. Set at the world center.This would make the main body of the clock.


*NOTE*

Always model at world center making sure that your axes are properly rotated and centered to make modeling easier.


Next, to make the corners, I made an additional cube, sized accordingly, and then booleaned out the inverted round parts with a cylinder.


Then I took the fillet tool to round off the hard edges. Then copied and moved to the four corners of the clock.


*NOTE*

I used the fillet tool extensively on this model to get rid of the hard edges to give it a more realistic look since I wouldn't be subdividing.

Next, I added the glass. A cube sized as needed with the front face extruded out and scaled down to get the bevel. You could also use the bevel tool for this.

Next I started on the top of the clock. Extruded and scaled appropriately.


*NOTE*

I filleted the four corners before extruding to make sure the entire top had rounded edges throughout the extrusions.
