Drew up a reference "grid" real quick (I'm planning to use it to see how big the Honda's analog and digital clock layouts are), and also added the custom reflection to the bezel of one of the Grand Seiko dials that I had (actually, just copy-pasted a GS dial onto the Explorer image from above).

I'll slow down with these clock dials for a while. The analog clock works best with a black background and simple markers -- I've learned that much (the Navitimer is terrible for reading at a glance, and the "Snowflake" Seiko washes out the hands).

Besides, I'm a little embarrassed to admit that just slapping a watch company's dial onto a wallpaper file destined for a car stereo is pretty cheesy. I'm okay at doing technical stuff, but I suck at creative art. :D

2018 Silver Civic X Hatchback EX
I just got a 2018 EX hatchback and I can change the regular background just fine. I can NOT change the clock face for the life of me. I have the picture that I want on the flash drive and I can even make it the regular wallpaper but I can't figure out how to change the clock face. Any help out there?

(I've seen some screen shots of other people's HU where the option is very obvious on the same page that changes the clock from analog to digital, etc. That option is not there for me.)

Hmm, weird. No option to change the clock at all?

I can change it to: Analog, Digital, small digital, or off. That's it

Not sure you can change clock background in Color Audio system as opposed to Display Audio system.

Picked up my 2018 Civic Ex last night. Made this to throw on there. Still has protective cover on it.

I can't seem to get this to work on mine. Both have '18 EX's. Any thoughts? Can you show a shot of the screen that lets you change the clock face?

Sorry. It didn't look right and I jumped to a wrong conclusion. But let me try another guess. Are you using the alternate skin? I don't think you can have a clock wallpaper in alternate skin. I though that was documented in the OM somewhere but can't find it at the moment. If you are using the alternate skin, change back to the standard skin and re-test.

SilverXHatch, yeah, this is something to check:
If you are using the alternate skin, change back to the standard skin and re-test.
Check Settings -> System -> Others, and you should see "Change Skin".

Your photo shows the alternate skin (the purple gears in the corner gave it away).

It took me a while to think of this possibility, but that's what did it for me too.

I found where this is documented, at least where in a '16 Civic OM:

Ok, just a few more shots...

The grid helped me get an idea of how big the digital layouts are.

I used the Rolex Explorer wallpaper to align the Nomos, GS, and Navitimer dials in these wallpapers, too, since it worked so well (mostly due to luck!).

I haven't tried the Apple Watch and Casio versions in the car yet; maybe they'll line up okay, maybe not.

Three variants of 3-6-9 dials that aren't stolen from a Rolex Explorer. I haven't tried them in the car yet; maybe the numerals will collide with the hour markers.

That page of the manual is for the Color Audio, not the Display Audio, so similarity to 9th gen is understandable.

Wallpaper page for Display Audio:

Our cars aren't complete without a little personalization. I'd like to see your homescreen and wallpaper.

To get us started here is something I made for my car. I'm just a novice so don't be too harsh.
