Puzzle Details

I recently gave a new watch to my friend for their birthday.

However, as usual with my presents, it was quite useless as it gains 6 minutes every hour.

I set it using my own accurate clock at midnight and the watch now shows 8.26am.

I know that it stopped 30 minutes ago, so what is the correct time now?
