while date +%s | figlet | lolcat ; do sleep 1 ; clear ; done # Watch the Unix clock in style with figlet and lolcat. Tonight it passes over 1555555555 seconds.

@climagic Without flickering (don't restart lolcat):

clear; (while date +%s | figlet & do sleep 1; clear; done) | lolcat

Strangely, this doesn't work (but does with cat instead of figlet):

clear; (while date +%s & do sleep 1; clear; done) | figlet | lolcat
