Stop Watch
.

We have here a stop-watch with three hands. 

The second hand, which travels once round the face in a minute, is the one with the little ring at its end near the centre. 
Our dial indicates the exact time when its owner stopped the watch. 
You will notice that the three hands are nearly equidistant. 

The hour and minute hands point to spots that are exactly a third of the circumference apart, but the second hand is a little too advanced. 

An exact equidistance for the three hands is not possible. 
Now, we want to know what the time will be when the three hands are next at exactly the same distances as shown from one another. 

Can you state the time?
