What is the first time a clock has a hand?

Minute Hand. The large hand on a clock points to the minutes. It turns once every 60 minutes (or one hour) around the clock. Ex. The minute hand on the clock to the left is just past "4". If you count the marks starting at "12", it will show that it is 22 minutes past hour.
