By popular demand and countless messages asking where to buy, here it is: the first limited production run of the Binary Wrist Watch!
The watch has 4x4 minus three LEDs arranged in a multiplexed matrix. Where one column corresponds to one digit in digital time. The time is shown in binary coded decimal and one of digit is represented as with a maximum of four bits.
It both looks exceptionally stylish and works great with a simple user interface and battery life up to two years. Arriving at the final design was an iterative process where a lot of different problems had to be solved. In my opinion the end product turned out great and is something I love to wear on a daily basis.
One of the first things people would notice with the watch was of course how it looked. I wanted a watch that looked good and reminiscent of an actual product. In short, it had to be something I could wear to meetings at work.
The design, when the watch is off, is a simple two-tone combination of black and silver. This is present in the leather watch strap and clasp, along with both the case and the PCB.
I've always been fascinated by both interesting ways of telling the time and binary code. It's amazing the amount of information can be stored in simple ON/OFF signals. I knew I wanted a new wrist watch so why not combine binary code with a wrist watch and do it as an awesome project?
This is the kind of idea that lodged itself in the back of my mind. Always present and constantly evolving until it reached a saturation point where the project had to be done!
There were several challenges that had to solved to make it the watch of my dreams. Most of these challenges can be traced back to the small area of a wrist watch. It would have been easy to make a big or ugly watch, but that's simply not what I wanted from this project. You now have the rare opportunity to get your hands o none of these unique watches. Show off your style and personality with this handmade, geeky watch.
Choose between the Soldered and tested PCB and the Fully Assembled Watch which includes the soldered PCB, 3D printed watch body, crystal glass, and the watch band put together like the watch in the picture.
