Here are some mockups of a clock I had designed for my high school.
The sectors would radiate out until they hit a pipe or wall, so this clock design was really custom for the space.
The compass-hand would have the angle of one sector. The compass-hand was intended to make it easier to read accurate relative times, such as "quarter-past". The hands with a spoked wheel counter-weight make it easier to tell time relative to any hour.
The sectors were cut out and painted. It was unclear whether the clock motion would have had enough torque for the compass-hand. The clock was never completed and I don't know where the sectors are now.
I've been thinking about reviving the project with expandable sectors (if that's possible).
