It looks like a quartz watch, wonder what kind of battery it takes 
Maybe?

I was OK until I got to 5:00. And 7:00.
EDIT: Aha! I knew it! Probably from the website you got the picture from comes this quote:
"5 is slightly wrong. With the exclamation point under the bar of the squareroot sign it says sqrt(9!)  9/9 which is 602.395.
It should have the exclamation point outside the squareroot sign in which case it would be (sqrt(9))!  9/9 which is 5. "
...as if I had the math to figure that out.

Yeah sqrt of 9 is 3, making the factorial (!) of 3 = to 6 subtracting 9 over 9 (which is 1) = 5
but if done like the clock face , would be the sqrt of (9x8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1) ... which is 602.395 .... but then you've still got to deduct the 9/9 (which is 1) , so the full wrong answer would be 601.395

...and seven doesn't seem quite right, since the .9 factorial isn't quite 1 (although it's as close as you can get without hitting 1, I guess).

You could have 65.932 too ,... if you subtract the 9 from the wrong answer of 602.395 before dividing the entire thing by the final 9 instead of just subtracting the 9/9 (which is 1 obviously)

Would work if you made it 0.999999999 (recurring) , but it doesn't quite fit on the dial lol

Sorry, I've long since run out of fingers and toes to work this one out...
