The use of 'on idle' should be avoided. Instead, write a handler in the
script of the field that is called by an openCard handler:

send updateTime to field "Now"

and let the handler call itself in 1 second:

on updateTime
  put the long time into me
  send updateTime to me in 1 second
end updateTime
