Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen.
This thread has afforded me pleasure, instruction and information and I hope to use this garnered wisdom for improving my temporal displacement devise.

Might it be possible to animate these somehow? Some switch or trigger or magnet or...? that would make the needle move when and how you want it to?

Absolutely brilliant work, Mr. West!

On an aside, since it's been awhile since I've read Lovecraft, would you be so kind as to refresh my memory as to the "Gillman" reference? (I can't see that name and not think of the Creature from the Black Lagoon...) Or is the name something you came up with?

Of course madam. Please be kind enough to share your creations with us later?

Perhaps attaching the printed clear disk needle to a thicker clear piece. Plexiglas perhaps? and attaching it to a swivelling hub?

 Well I'm a bit embarrassed to discover I've spelt the name wrong. It should be "Gilman". I should go back and redo these.

Anyway, its the name of an inn in the town of Innsmouth, and also the last name of the hero in "The Dreams in the Witch House".

(It's the correct spelling in your alternate timeline...)

In the UK 'the works' occasionally has trays of 12 jars like that (about 3/4 inch diameter), that would do the job for the glass.
