And here it is finished. The hands are made from roofing flashing from Home Depot. It’s basically thin squares of aluminium that i cut into the approximate shape of the original ones.

The hands are more rustic then i would like, but i’m too lazy to make new ones right now. Surprisingly the $5 quartz movement is strong enough to move the minute hand–which is much heavier then the orignal one. This actually keeps pretty accurate time–well as accurate as you can get with a ball clock. The lack of minute markers means you’re always guessing at the time anyway.
