Looking for a clock

I have been looking around for an analogue clock (one with a face and hands) for my site. I have found many javascript ones, but that is not what I want. I am looking for something written in perl which can be called by SSI. Has anyone seen anything like this on their travels?

Cheers

Looking for a clock

Well you have to wonder how the client would display the actual clock face:
the only way I can think of is a program that can create gifs/jpegs on the fly - but then it wouldn't update withouth further server interactions, would it? If you did want it to update the clock-face in real time, then the client would be constantly loading a new picture.... (or at a minimum every minute (i.e. no second hand) ... and this would be bad for the server and doubly bad for the client (you would cripple a 56K connection unless you were careful with quality and sizes).
I did see this, though:

and I thought that that was quite elegant.
