Using Special2 0x(variable) 0x4a, it will read out the timer to the variable.
buffernumber 0x0 0x(variable) will buffer the time in seconds for the buffer 0
To print that, just use a normal msgbox that contains in its text a \v\h02.

If you want to print in the hours, minutes and Seconds format, you may use the VarMaths specials to make it into sizable chunks.
(assuming the variable you used in the special call was 0x8007)
writebytetooffset 0x07 0x0203f4d8
writebytetooffset 0x80 0x0203f4d9
setvar 0x8000 0x3c
writebytetooffset 0x00 0x0203f4da
writebytetooffset 0x80 0x0203f4db
special2 0x(seconds) 0x41
special2 0x(minutes) 0x41
buffernumber 0x2 0x(seconds)
buffernumber 0x1 0x(minutes)
buffernumber 0x0 0x8007
msgbox 0x @text (text = \v\h01:\v\h02:\v\h03)
