When you ride in a luxury car, one of the first things you’ll notice is an analog clock. It’s a sign of grace, style, and precision.

Since the iPhone is arguably the “luxury car” of smart phones, it’s only right that an analog clock graces iOS 5’s new Notification Center.

Sure enough, not long after iOS 5 was released to the public, ClockCenter shows up on Cydia…

While ClockCenter is kind of barren — okay, let’s be honest, it’s extremely barren — it does hold a lot of promise.

If the developer can line up a good batch of custom themes for ClockCenter, and others jump on the theming bandwagon, then I could see it taking off.

Until then, the stock theme just isn’t enough to warrant a spot anywhere on my iPhone’s Notification Center, don’t you agree?

And no, before you ask, I don’t have a luxury car (I wish!); I’ve just ridden in them.
