I want to use the small motor that is in a remote control car and attach one of the wheels to the center of the clock hands but I want to control the speed of the clock hands.
To do this you will need one of the more expensive remote control car radios(transmitter) because they give proportional output. This means that if you squeeze the trigger a little bit then the motor spins slowly. Do you know anyone with a radio like this? Worst case they are not expensive to buy a cheap one.
If you wanted to go this way you would need:
1. proportional radio transmitter
3. ESC (electronic speed controller)
