Great, Thank you!
in SketchUp, after you select the circle tool, but before you actually draw the circle, just type the number of sides you want to have in your circle. there is a small box down in the bottom-left corner to input the # of sides...

I make clocks all the time, and I generally use 60 or 120 sides.

I need all the help I can get with CAD and printing-- so I leave the deatails to you. For some reason, my circle is really a polygon with about 25 sides rather than a true circle. I presume I am doing something incorrectly in Sketchup.

(BTW, I found the answer to the polygon issue here: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/sketchuphowto/B7AYR-fBhKE -but it looks like I would have to start from scratch to get more of a "circle" ).

Anyway, print out starting with background color. When the numerals start, pause and switch to a different color of your choice.

My first print (the one pictured) came out rough when it got the the numerals-- so your retraction and infill settings hopefully is fine tuned in better than mine.

A clock movement like this should work:
