After looking for Lego designs, I found one for a Lego grandfather clock. This gave me the idea for to find an analog clock design, but there were none geared from only legos. So, after a few failed attempts, I made one myself and it works great. 
The first 6 pics are overhead shots and finished product.

the rest are photos of construction. 

Use Motor 71427 (output 360 rpm)!

you should try making one with concentric arms. i designed one a few years ago using a turntable for the hour hand. <br>http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v191/legofreak1988/?action=view&amp;current=a2333446.mp4
Your fingers look like they are made from wood....
haha nope they're real.
So... DOES IT WORK?
Sure, No problem. Each number cooresponds to the teeth on that gear. <br>RPM 360 - 20<br>--------------40-8 <br>-----------------40----worm-<br>1 rpm-------------------36 &lt;-1rpm or Second Hand<br>36-8<br>---40-8<br>-------16-8<br>-----------24-8<br> 1/60 rpm -&gt; 16 &lt;--- minute hand <br><br>1/60rpm<br>16-------worm-<br> -----------12 &lt;--- 1/720 rpm or hour hand
Thanks!<br> <br> L<br>
You're welcome.
<br> Since you must have worked these out: what are your gear-ratio?<br> Last time I thought about this I didn't have the right gears....<br> <br> L<br>
I realized my post wasn't a reply and just wanted to let you know it was there. ^^^^
