Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

You will need:

  1. An old watch
  2. An led and a flat battery
  3. and something to disassemble your watch with
  4. red paint
  5. sand paper

Step 2: Disassemble Your Watch

Take off the back of the watch and take out the time adjuster and the face should come out. You can save the face or throw it out or recycle it.

Step 3: Take Out the Glass

The glass on the watch should just pop out and now you want to sand it so it becomes more opaque after it is sanded pop it back into the watch.

Step 4: Put in Led

Put the Led into the watch and duck tape it to the battery and the put the back of the watch back on.

Step 5: Paint

You can paint or spray pant. I just painted on some acrylic paint but make sure you cover the watch face with tape so you don't paint on it.

Step 6: Finished

Go and save the day with our new iron man repulsor

you could solder on two longer wire to go through some metal rubar or repulsor unit to a switch on the thumb or something

You can raid discarded computer towers for LEDs and sometimes even get a useable CMOS Battery in the bargain. You might even be able to swipe some little momentary-on switches to hide between your thumb & hand to save battery life.

Good idea I may try to upgrade it and add a switch where the watch adjustment knob was.
