We present a new ODE approach for an evolving polygonal spiral by the crystalline eikonal-curvature flow with a fixed center. In this approach, we introduce a mechanism of new facet generation at the center of the growing spiral, which is based on the theory of two-dimensional nucleation. We prove the existence, uniqueness and intersection free of solution to our formulation globally-in-time. In the proof of the existence we also prove that new facets are generated repeatedly in time. The comparison result of the normal velocity between inner and outer facets with the same normal direction leads intersection-free result. The normal velocities are positive after the next new facet is generated, so that the center is always behind of the moving facets.
