Swiss railway clock for conky
A conky clock by Jochen Keil (2013) based upon Alison Pitt's Air Clock (2009)

This clock also rotates smoothly without "ticks". It will also stop on top for
a configureable delay (look out for the global
The main drawback is resource usage. For smooth circulation, conky needs to be updated every 0.1 second. Therefore I strongly recommend to run this in a seperate conky process.
update_interval is larger than 1 the seconds hand is not
drawn. Hence, to save battery set
update_interval_on_battery to 30 or so.
