The expression seems to be precise, but
it is not perfect because it is very long.

To define the adverb "clockwise" one has
to invent an idea that conveys the concept
and then he has to translate the concept
into the auxlang. A perfect translation is
terse (preferably one word) and it conveys
all the information. Examples:

adverb-clock-rotation
adverb-right-rotation
adverb-clockwise-rotation (clockwise is a morpheme)

The Esperanto word "right-something"
is not good because it sounds like a
noun and because it does not convey
any information about rotation.
