Glad to be back, my time has been limited of late as I have been fitting a new bathroom suite, it's is now nearly finished, yipee!!!
Hoping to get a few wrist shots soon, I have one or two that I would like to show including the Rodania that you pointed me in the direction of :-D .
The Nixie is really cool, you will not be disappointed!

The blue led back lights looks fantastic and I especially like the motion activated display, very cool 8-)
Setting is really easy and the buttons are very responsive (although I am not planning on using the button for displaying the time ;-) ).
The watch is a nice size, it's big, but not that big it looks over sized, looking at how well the case is packed it would be impossible to make it any smaller. ~:(
If you are planning an upgrade would it be possible to add a day\date display? I was thinking it would be good to have a right to left sweep over the sensor to activate the time and a left to right sweep over the sensor to display the date.
Great watch - Thank You!


Thanks for the comments Mick!

I have been asked by other people about a day indicator. Do you think the day will be enough or do you want day + month? The motion sensor is not direction sensitive, so a left sweep or right sweep has no meaning. What I could do is use the motion sensor to display the time and pressing the button to display the date or something like that. Any suggestions?

The watch really is as small as it gets. I actually compared my prototype to a G-shock and it is pretty much the same. See here:

Synthetic saphire crystal - you can get a round one that size for around $45. Just Google it..common as all nowadays.
