Here is the working code:

.Model Small
CommonSeg    segment
assume CS:CommonSeg,DS:CommonSeg
org  100h
start:

;                              INT 21,2C - Get Time
;        AH = 2C;
;
;        on return:
;        CH = hour (0-23)
;        CL = minutes (0-59)
;        DH = seconds (0-59)
;        DL = hundredths (0-99)
;        - retrieves DOS maintained clock time

mov ah, 2Ch
int 21h
push dx
xor ax, ax
mov al, ch
mov bl, 0Ah
div bl
mov bx, ax
mov dl, bl
mov ah, 02h
int 21h
mov dl, bh
int 21h
mov dl, 3Ah
int 21h
xor ax, ax
mov al, cl
mov bl, 0Ah
div bl
mov bx, ax
mov dl, bl
mov ah, 02h
int 21h
mov dl, bh
int 21h
mov dl, 3Ah
int 21h
pop dx
xor ax, ax
mov al, dh
mov bl, 0Ah
div bl
mov bx, ax
mov dl, bl
mov ah, 02h
int 21h
mov dl, bh
int 21h
mov ax, 4C00h
int 21h
CommonSeg ends
end start

To get the bottom digit you have to do a mod 10, to get the high minute digit you have to do a divive by ten.

Or just keep subtracting tens and keep track of the number of times.  A poor person's division.

mov    cx,0       ;  no tens yet

lp:    sub    ax,10
jlt      Done   ;; got all tens

add   cx,1      ;;   one more ten
jmp   lp

Done:
sub    cx,1     ;; back up one
