At 10 minutes 55 seconds past 2pm or 14.10 and 55 seconds.

The minute hand rotates 360° per hour = 6° per minute = 1/10° per second.

The hour hand rotates 30° per hour = 1/120° per second.

At 12 o'clock the hands are perfectly aligned.

After each hour the minute hand is at 12 o'clock and the hour hand has rotated 30°.

For the hands to be aligned between 2pm and 3pm then the hour hand must have rotated 60° when the minute hand is at 12 o'clock.

To be aligned the minute hand has now to rotate n/10°. The hour hand has already rotated 60° and now needs to rotate a further n/120°

n/10 = 60 + n/120 : n = 7200/11 = 655 seconds = 10 minutes 55 seconds.

If there are lines near the center point of the clock, those just provide a more accurate way to see the exactly where the second or minute hand is. If you are referring to the lines between the big lines or 1, 2, 3..., those are still just second or minute markers representing 1 minute or 1 second each, depending on which hand you are referring to.
