Just think of 12PM 12 min and 12 sec of tomorrow, the Wednesday. It will be -
12 12 12 12 12 12...... a sequence of SS MM HH DD MM YY

12 sec past 12 min past 12 hr of 12th December of year 12. 

This is kind of sequence comes once every year. 01 01 01. 1st January of year 01. After one year one month and one day the sequence will be similar but with different number. 02 02 02. This goes till 12. 
But if we consider repeatation of same sequence of same number- it will be after one hundred years only. (Under consideration of DD MM YY format.) If it becomes DD MM YYYY- the repeatation will be after one thousand years. This is a kind of palindrome. The last major palindrome that I can recall was 2002 2002 2002 . 2 min past 08Pm of 20th Feb of the year 2002.
