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 DIY 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 challenged 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.

I will take you through the process from idea to making your own binary wrist watch you can wear with pride.

Let's get started!
