If you have 'Display Large Clock' turned on then it will only show the
clock if your LCD/VFD driver supports the big numbers feature. If not
then you're stuck with the date.

It would be trivial to add a new setting to have it as an option but
thats a bit of sore point at the moment :-( While I'm all for adding new
settings to make things as flexible as possible I do understand it can
make things confusing for some users. See the discussion  here
