Typesetting Arabic clocks with LuaTeX

Just a short post to share an example of producing clock faces with Arabic numbers using LuaTeX's nodes and glue. No drawing packages were used, all done with pdf_literal nodes and some basic trigonometry to calculate positions of the numbers, angles for clock hands and values of glue to move things around. I will try to write-up the code/techniques in a future post.
