Guidelines for time pickers

The time picker control provides a standardized way to choose the localized time. The entry point displays the chosen time, and selecting the entry point expands a picker surface for the user to make a selection. The time picker overlays other UI; it doesn't push other UI out of the way.

Is this the right control?

The time picker is used for selecting a single time. The time picker is a static display that's set by the user and isn't used to display the current time.

Selecting the control's entry point expands it vertically from the middle:
