Hi Apostolos,

The 'du matin' here is a bit redundant as whoever you are speaking to ( unless you are in a different hemisphere) would know if it was morning or afternoon. 

So

Il est dix heures vingt-trois It is ten twenty-three

is the correct answer.

You wouldn't use 'minutes' unless you were the speaking clock.

Bonne Continuation!

Il est dix heures vingt-trois (minutes) du matin.

It seems you got it almost right, missing only the "heures". I've heard versions with and without "minutes" mentioned in spoken French.
