# What is it this Time?

Most clocks tell the time, but some are for letters.

03:00 11:53 07:45 06:07 06:29 07:30 09:15 11:53 06:29 09:45 06:15 06:29
04:45 07:52 07:15 09:00 08:11 07:52 05:53 07:52 11:53 02:53 06:29 07:52
04:45 06:29 07:30 06:29 09:00 10:08 04:15 04:15 06:07 06:29 09:45 06:15
06:29 05:53 08:53 07:15 09:00 08:11 06:07 01:23 07:53 11:53 02:53 06:29


The answer is an English sentence.

I think this is the solution:

The hands of the clock encode letters with the flag semaphore system resulting in the sentence "The art of simplicity is a puzzle of complexity"! ;)

This is a nice idea, but

it is easy to also crack it by any other method for monoalphabetic substitution cipher

Thank you for this nice riddle!

• Easy? Not with the typo in ”puzze” and the silly 03:00 in the beginning it isn’t :-) – Bass Dec 2 '17 at 22:05
• @Bass The 03:00 means "letters are following" (as opposed to numbers). And I completely overread the typo in "puzze" ;)) – Ctx Dec 2 '17 at 22:21
• Nice, I was wondering if it was difficult; I always underestimate the Puzzling folks. Can't believe I made a typo, I double-checked it. Oh well. – SuperWild1 Dec 3 '17 at 4:57
