There are 60 marks, so each represents a minute.

The hour hand is on a mark when the minute hand is on {0, 12, 24, 36, 48}.

When the minute hand is on a mark, the second hand is on noon.

Blue cannot be the second hand. (It would be on noon and it would be 18 minutes past/before a full hour.)

1) Yellow is on 12. Mauve indicates 24 minutes. Blue indicates 42 [minutes] = 8 + 2/5 [hours] = 8:24
2) Yellow is on 12. Mauve indicates 36 minutes. Blue indicates 18 [minutes] = 3 + 3/5 [hours] = 3:36

3) Mauve is on 12 ... -> 3:36

4) Mauve is on 12 ... -> 8:24.

The watch could be rotated upside down, too. ;)
