After a discussion with a friend we came to the conclusion that an embroidered fixed-time-watch will be more accurate than the real watch. The real watch never shows the exactly correct time - it normally shows a time close to the real time. The embroidered version on the other hand show the exactly correct time one a day. Exactly 13:42 every day it is synchronized with a atom watch without even have to use a radio signal.
Since this watch turned out so well (and is so accurate) I wanted to share it with you!
The bad thing about this instructable is that you will need a rather rare tool - a embroidery sewing machine. Maybe your school or grandma have one?
Step 1: Fabric and thread
The threads you use should be special machine embroidery threads, typically made out of rayon. Sulky and Robison Anton are two common brands. You will need the following colors:
- Dark gray
I didn't have the exact colours at home when I made it so I used a gold/brown in stead of the dark gray and a yellow in stead of the blue thread. Use the thread you like (and perhaps already have).
