A question about an instructable to do with clocks I saw a while back. Answered

So if you go up to the search bar and type in the word 'clock', you get all sorts of results. Small clocks, big clocks, plastic clocks, metal clocks, Batman clocks, Skyrim clocks, everything under the sun.

Bar one.

The thing is, all these clocks are generic. They all are mostly the same. A standard circle with hands and the hands marching round the clock in circles. I'm not saying that this is bad, I'm just saying that seeing the same thing over and over and over gets very boring for me. So when I saw a clock that was unique and different, it was like a dream come true. However, if I try to look for that particular clock again, I can't seem to find it.

The clock in question acts similar to the linear clock, but is still circular (hypocrite). Looks sort of like this:
                 |
________\|/________
|________________|
     |___________|
        |________|

The top row shows the seconds, the second row the minutes and the last the hours. Essentially, the hours and minutes and seconds all turn while the actual base stays still. The numbers are along the rows and as they turn, the arrow points to what the time is.

If anyone can find this instructable, I will be grateful. Otherwise, I will be forced to do this project without the help of any sort of instruction.

Maybe it was Vincent John's "Cardboard Paper Ring Clock"

Or maybe it was Peter Balch's "A Steampunk Orrery-Clock"

Those both have rotating, ring-shaped, time counters.
