with pygtk 2.6.2 I get
$ python clock.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "clock.py", line 151, in ?
    w = PyGtkWidget()
  File "clock.py", line 36, in __init__
TypeError: cannot create instance of abstract (non-instantiable) type

with pygtk 2.7.99 it works fine.
Also I believe the call to 'self.window.cairo_create()' requires pygtk
2.7.0. So I think the version check should be updated to something like

if gtk.pygtk_version < (2,7,0):
    print "PyGtk 2.7.0 or later required"
    raise SystemExit
