Analog clocks may be classic but they are a little boring, hack an analog clock to display the time in a different way.
By adding rotating numerical dials to the hour, minute and second hand the time is read by where the dials fall along a vertical point on the clock face, rather than reading the position of each hand against a printed backing.
I chose the time reading position on my clock to be read at 12 o'clock, but you can put the mark anywhere on the plastic face and reset the clock's time for that position. 12 o'clock seemed like the easiest, most natural way to read the time.
The trickiest part of this build was creating a new clock face template, luckily I've provided you with the template I created. Feel free to modify it and use it on your own clock.
Here's a quick video of the reconstructed clock in action:
This confusing clock is a fun take on a boring analog time piece. Best of all, it can be constructed in an afternoon with minimal supplies.
Enough talk, let's disassemble!
