Vistual, I noticed your clock icon display is only valid half the time, Noon, 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00. When the hour hand reaches 1:30, 4:30, 7:30 and 10:30 the minute hand should be moved to the 6:00 position, but it remains at the 12:00 position. Yes, I am picking at nits :)

LOL!
the absolute HARDEST one i have ever played around with.
- 140+ frames and ended up with 142 (i dont know how) : S
- then i went and got it in my stubborn head to make it go backwards - and that made things even worse!
- then i thought it was a good idea to make it all transparent.
- then i thought it was a good idea to put my name in it ...
believe me if i needed an animation fix - this was it. i don't even wanna play around with them anymore after that one.!

With most timepieces that don't work I do the following;

If it's digital
1) replace battery....
2) if that don't work then bin it and buy new timepiece

If it's mechanical
1) Wind it up....
2) if that don't work then take said timepiece to a professional horologist

You don't need to pay someone.
For mechanical, take 1 small screw top jar, make a tiny hole in the centre of the lid, poke a piece of bare wire through the hole.
Now take the back off the watch, attach the watch to the wire so that it hangs above halfway in the jar. Fold the wire flat on the outside of the lid, and seal it off with insulating tape.
Into the bottom of the jar, pour in some solvent fluid like petrol/meths/paraffin, or anything stronger you can find.
Screw the lid back onto the jar. The watch must be clear of the liquid.
Leave for 2 - 14 days, and try the watch again.
For Grandfather clocks, you put an open container of solvent at the base of the clock, and then seal the clock completely. You maybe will have to wait a few weeks until it does its job.
Works for any size clocks, you just have use the most convenient system.

And for digital, take the battery out, and bung the watch in the fridge overnight.

Hmmm, another interesting thing to ponder does your avatar run clockwise when viewed in South America or Australia?
