DIY LED Watch vs Panerai PAM 127

I have completed a prototype of my LED Watch. I will post the detail about how to make it later. The watch case and strap are missing :)
- Programmable (via ICSP)
- Vintage 7-segment LEDs with slim sigments
- Powered from a coin cell 3.7V Li-ion rechargeable battery
- Built-in USB battery charger

Size comparison between the DIY LED Watch size and a 1 Thai Baht coin.

On my wrist with help of transparent tape :).

The LED Watch prototype is on the left. Panerai PAM 127 or the "Fiddy" is on the right. In case that you are wondering about the strap, it is custom made from a Louis Vuitton bag.

Please comeback and check out for the making of DIY LED Watch later.

Even though the DIY LED watch don't look good. But, I think, it more precious.

Hey! I am really impressed by all of your works :) Could you please be that kind to send me all the information about the DIY LED watch? I am really interested in making one of my own, but I don't know how to start. That would be really helpful :) Thank you! Keep up the good work!
