Finally, time is up, by clock (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

espy

Here is my best explanation:

'clock' is the definition.

'finally time is up by' is the subsidiary indication.

'finally' says to take the final letters.

The final letters of 'time is up by' are 'espy'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for espy that I've seen before include "Perceive", "Catch sight of (poetic)", "Watch", "Pick out at a distance", "detect", "perceive", "Catch a glimpse of", "spot", "Detect" and "Behold".)
