Step 1: Open the Clock

I used an IKEA clock, for those is the printable, too.

Open the plastic cover and pull out the timing pointer.

Step 2: Print Out the Dial Plate

Print the dial plate (there are two pages, one with the dial plate and the other one with the clefs) and cut it out.

Cut out the bass and treble clef.

Step 3: Glue the Clef to the Timing Pointer

Cut a hole into the middle of the dial plate and put it onto the clock. Press the timing pointers pack into the clock. Now put the plastic cover on top.

I couldn't download the .doc file. The website returns an error :(

It should be working now. If you need a different file than PDF, let me know and I´ll add the file you need.

This is a really cool idea but 3 could be a dotted minim, 6 a dotted semibreve, 7 a semibreve and a dotted minim, 8 a breve, 9 & 10 breve with crochet & quaver respectively, 11 a breve and a dotted minim and 12 a dotted breve.
What about putting an alto clef on the second hand

Nice. This would be perfect for a music practice room.

Yes. I made it as a present for my music school teacher.

That is awesome.

what a creative idea! Thanks for sharing.

rossthebuilder (author)2015-07-19

looks good! but 3 should be dotted half note. 6 should be dotted hole note. and so on

He Se (author)rossthebuilder2015-07-20

Yes, that´s a good idea. You can use the word fount "Maestro Time" and change the notes (choose symbols, there you can find the dotted notes)

yeah, and time signature would be a nice touch too.
