I also found the light pattern from the LEDs to be a bit wide, and in some cases diffuse.  The folks at EMS tell me they are 20 degree (viewing angle) LEDs.

I poked around a bit and found some 15 degree Cree LED’s on Mouser that I like.  I ordered a small quantity to try and I think the pattern from these is nicer and more focused.  I’ve ordered enough to replace all the LED’s in my clock.  It will be interesting to see how it looks once I’ve made the switch.

If you’re interested, here are the Mouser part numbers:  
Blue: C503B-BAN-CY0C0462  $0.14 each
Green: C503B-GAN-CB0F0792  $0.19 each
Red: C503B-RAN-CY0B0AA2  $0.23 each
