Add metallic look to it. You can do it well enough using only layer effects:
- outer glow: black, mode=overlay;
- inner glow: white, mode=overlay;
- gradient: switch to Metal family of gradient, then choose the gradient shown on screenshot, style=angle, mode=overlay, opacity=50%
- pattern: choose a pattern from nature patterns (or create your own pattern!), mode-overlay, opacity=10%.

with brighter color, and repeat layer effects. (You can copy them from first circle and paste into second).

Carefully align this decorative shape with clock shapes (so that they all are centered), then set layer blend mode to screen, and apply some layer effects: drop shadow, pattern overlay, bevel and emboss. Do not overload image with effects, though!
