wordplay – Time to get a watch

This puzzle is a part of the Month-to-month Matter Problem #6: Is it actually that [time] once more?.

Final weekend I caught up with a buddy I hadn’t seen shortly. I went spherical his home on the Friday night time with an enormous bottle of whiskey and the 2 of us put the world to rights, chatting deep into the early hours of Saturday morning.

After a lot chat and joking about – and far, a lot whiskey – I finally fell asleep on the couch, waking up some unknown time later feeling very tough certainly. My mouth was painfully dry, my head was pounding, and I had completely no thought what time it was.

I had foolishly left my cellphone at house and do not put on a watch, so I gazed up on the clock on the wall as a substitute, solely to seek out it utterly obscured by shiny, vibrant stickers of animals, fruit, legendary creatures… all types.

Had I been pondering straight I’d have simply turned on the TV and flicked to a information channel or one thing, however who can clarify the thought processes of a person with a hangover…? As a substitute, I nudged my buddy till he woke and requested what was up with the clock and the stickers.

“It is my daughter,” he grunted. “She simply loves clocks and all issues related. She’s been taking part in with all of them – shifting them round, altering the occasions on them, protecting them in stickers… Solely one among them now tells the right time presently.”

I requested which one, and my buddy replied:

“The one with a dragon, a ghost, a fairy, and a gnome on.”

Then he fell again to sleep with a wry look on his face. In no situation to query, I then spent far too lengthy traipsing round the home, checking the entire numerous timepieces I might discover. Listed below are some photographs of all of them:

Timepieces covered with stickers

Attempt as I would I can’t work out which one my buddy was referring to – which one is appropriate, and what time was it once I took its {photograph}?

TASK: What time is it? (You will want to determine which timepiece reveals the right time…)
