do you think that I could make a single handed watch from a standard kit available on DIY watch club?
I’ve never fiddled with a watch, but I do fiddle with everything else - computers, children’s toys, HiFi/ speakers, … Maybe it isn’t possible as a first attempt.
I think that I will need:
- to replace the minute and second hands with spacers so that the hour hand can stay supported/ in place (or ‘break’ the hands that I don’t need so there are no hands)
- a custom/ plain face depending upon the style I decide on
I would quite like midnight at the bottom of the watch face and midday at the top of the watch face - so potentially I could invert the mechanism and adjust/ replace words or numbers on the face that would reveal it is upside down.
What do you think the pitfalls/ limitations will be?
I’ve cleaned my watches and replaced my watch batteries, this morning. My mind started wandering to customising a watch. That led me to the internet and to this club!
Thank you for your help and advice
