ho solo guardato l'altro tipo


Explanation:
effettivamente, leggendo le altre domande, è chiaro che si tratta di slang dell'east end londinese. To clock significa anche guardare, vedere, osservare. Francesco ha ragione (e io lo dovrei sapere, dopo 3 anni vissuti a un tiro di schioppo da Bow Church!).
