Figure out which display panel it's using, find out the wiring of that panel, throw together a driver circuit...

*best answer. +1. Cheap option is to keep the display panel and guts from an alarm clock that flashes as you prefer, then just plug that in with the buttons disconnected. it will flash forever.

... Good point. All you need is a display the right size that will flash 12:00; it doesn't have to be the one originally installed... so sacrificing a clock might well be the fastest solution, and easiest if you don't want to spend time figuring out the appropriate wiring.
