Steps to reproduce:

The Timer view of the Clock.app provides a user interface for setting Hours and minutes. However, the predominant use case for timers are for a few hours or less. Indeed, timers in the five to ten minute range are common: heading food, waiting for nails to dry, remembering to call someone in a few minutes, ... 

Currently the Timer view, when a user first sees it reads:
  0:00
which, intuitively seems like zero minutes and zero seconds. 

The timer should probably have three fields HH:MM:SS to clarify the issue.
Are you talking about the screen where you set and start the timer? We did discuss having seconds in there too but felt that use cases for less than one minute were more likely to use the stopwatch instead.

Ah, there it is. We actually had it and pulled it out. See bug 927588. 

Resolving this one based on that decision.
