Here is something I was able to put together that might be of help for some people. Sorry, it's a bit low res, but I'll see if I can make a vector file of it.

I hope this helps. The text right under the clock face says
DOMINE SALVAM FAC REGINAM NOSTRAM VICTORIAM PRIMAM
Basically it means Lord save our Queen Victoria I
