    I think this comes to the closest to describing the clock, though it's not a "flip" display, its still an analog clock.

    Yes, that would be an analog clock with a digital display. As noted, the gears move continuously and not in steps, which is what makes it analog.

    Not sure if this is how they did it. but it's how I'd do it. In each number there is a limited number of combinations for the horizontal lines and the vertical lines. For example the 10 hour digit is only a 1 or off (1-9=off, 10-12=on). So for each digit use two cams, one for vertical, one for horizontal, that move slides to reveal the proper combination. The motor drives the minute cam at a rate of 1 rev/10 minutes. The 10 min, the hour, 10 hour digits are geared off it.
