The Notation of the Rubik's Clock

When you generate a scramble for the Rubik's Clock you can see a list of images showing the positions of the four yellow buttons and which gear you have to rotate in which direction. The number shows how many "hours" to turn. Counterclockwise rotations are marked by negative number. Do these steps so you hold the puzzle in your hand with the light blue clocks on top.
