3 Hours. It could've been 2:59:57 at the time it took 3 seconds to reach 3:00:00. Then it would take 3 hours to get to 6;00;00. You never stated the time it started.

3 hrs and 3 seconds. Or, 3 hrs more after striking 3 o'clock Isn't it obvious? :P Or if you mean it reaches 3 o'clock from 12 o' clock in 3 secs? then it will take 6 secs from 12 o'clock to reach 6 o'clock. Or, 3 secs more after striking 3o'clock.
