Hello everyone , 
I'am proud to say I have reached over 50 subscribers , :-)
I just want to thank all of them for there support  ,
and also want to thank the Instructable Community for making me a pro member ,
so the best way I know to thank everyone is posting one of my latest projects , 

So to start I'll mention the benefits of making your own solar watch ,

first off is its was cheap and simple to make only costed me a couple of dollars ,
second it never needs the battery replaced , and it takes very little time to charge ,
and the other benefit  is no more shopping around for rare battery's that often the stores do not sell , 
and also wanted it to be simple to make so almost anyone could do it , 

Next is how it works , 
well its simple it use's a rechargeable battery and a small solar cell ,
all you have to do is leave it in the sun for hour or two and its ready to go ,

I wanted this to be explained clearly and to try not to have all the steps crammed into just a couple ,
 hence the extra steps to ensure there is enough detail and picture's to follow it ,  

So with that all said lets go make a solar watch

Step 1: Getting what you need

OK here's a list of somethings you need ,

A Lava led watch ,  I got this from  ebay  this was about 4 dollars , used this kind because I could fit the solar cell neatly into it ,
A Solar led flash light , this to was from ebay , I paid $ 1.00 for it , it has everything you need inside ,
A metal twist tie the kind you use for plastic  lunch bags  ,  why you ask because well need a flat wire for the battery ,
A piece of small wire ,

Gloves , for when using the epoxy .
epoxy , 
Glue gun ,
clear tape , 
electric tape , 
soldering iron / gun ,
and a small flat screwdriver .

Please Not I'm in no way responsible for Damage or any injuries that may happen , 

Now  to get started ,
ill admit i thought this was a lame solar powered battery in a watch but you actually have a watch in there. This is clever!
<p>I like your honesty and thanks , </p><p>there are some cheap and useless solar watches out there ,</p><p>that's why I tested it and worked the bugs out before posting this project ,</p>
<p>This is a very cool idea and surprisingly cheap and simple!</p>
<p>Thank you , That was what I was going for , :-)</p>
