Default [Q] Remove or hide the clock in the status bar

After searching high and low on Google, I'm unable to find the answer to one question:

How do I remove or hide the system clock in the status bar of my Verizon Galaxy Note 3?

I've already turned off most of the phone's unnecessary bells and whistles, I've deactivated as many unnecessary or unwanted crapware apps as I can, but I can't find a way to perform the simple action of turning the status bar's clock off.

I'm not a rooter, so that isn't an option. I'm hoping that someone can point me towards a well-hidden system setting or a simple app that can get rid of the clock.

Just FYI - I want to get rid of the clock because I don't need it since my Accuweather widget displays the date and time, and I like to keep the status bar as clean as possible. I'm a clean freak when it comes to my computers & devices.

Any suggestions?

As much as I'd love to remove every single byte of bloatware and take 100% control over my phone, I don't want to risk being forced to pay full retail for a new device because I bricked the one that I currently own. Therefore, I have to be a "clean freak" within the boundaries and limitations of an out-of-the-box OS installation.

Well if you use Nova launcher you can completely remove the status bar, or really it's just hidden. However it reappears when going into apps. Here's a pic
