Desperately seeking a yearly clock

Astronomical clock in Old Town Square, Prague

Astronomical clock in Old Town Square, Prague

I’ve been scouring the internet for this everywhere, and I’ve concluded it’s not being sold. I’m looking for a large clock (about two feet or more in diameter) that ticks once a day and goes in a circle once a year. It would have watercolor paintings of the four seasons in each quadrant. Rather than actual dates, the top and bottome would be the summer and winter solstices. Perhaps more information could be overlaid on the clock, like angle of the sun in the sky.

Any ideas how to make one of these?

    how desperate are you though? it costs a small fortune!

      Yeah, I saw that. Price seems silly..it should be pretty possible to hack one of these together for $80. If I liked the design of their clock face I might be more intrigued..
