Default Display current time 'fast' on a form.

Hi, might be a silly question, but is there anyway to display the current time say 2 minutes faster than what it actually is? So i want the time to be displayed in a text box, but to appear two minutes faster than the system time.

Is this possible?

Thanks :)

Create a timer instance with a tick event every 1 second, then just write out the current time plus 2 minutes.
