There is a registry key for this now if you have the 2016 Anniversary update

Microsoft, Why do we have to edit the registry to get this to work? Why can't this be available in the clock settings?

Anyway for those who want to edit their registry and not add third party software you add a key in

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

called ShowSecondsInSystemClock

and give it a value of 1

Log out and in again and you have seconds

here is somebody who can explain how
