have numbers be on swiveled blocks and weighted....then have each hand have a rectangular magnifying lense (maybe a greenish color?) at the end, with the hand extending somewhat under it that way you would just have to locate the hour lense...

there, is that better? the minute hand
doesn't move at all. it always remains
vertical [although you could put it at
any angle you please]. the numbers
move counter-clockwise behind it. since
the hour hand and the minute hand
move at different rates, one of them has
to move relative to the clock face.

po, the hour hand would also have to move anti(counter)clockwise with a sort of sidereal motion, moving back 11/12ths of the circumference with each complete face rotation, in order for it to be oriented correctly to the minute hand on any given glance.

Let's say the minute hand is pointing straight up. At 12:00 the clock will look normal, with both hands pointing to the #12 which is in its normal topmost location. By 12:15 the face will have rotated a quarter turn counterclockwise, moving the 12 to the normal 9 o'clock position. The 3 will now be at the topmost spot, where the minute hand is still pointing. The hour hand will have had to move backwards almost evenly with the clockface, but just a little slower, so that the hour hand is about a quarter of the way moved toward the 1 (which is now at the 10 o'clock spot). Likewise at 12:30, the 12 will be at the bottom but the hour hand will need to be positioned halfway between the 12 and 1 (which is now where the 7 is usually). The clock will essentially be completely upside down at this point.

So you see the hour hand needs to move anticounterclockwise too, but slightly slower than the face. The motion of a second hand would not change, I believe.
