I've been wondering. How hard is it to craft a (digital) watch from scratch?
I'm currently thinking that (with a lot of assumptions) you can buy/import quartz chips or something like that from overseas, and then after putting them on a case, stick them to some circuits, batteries, some LCD display etc.
So yeah, what other considerations could there be, besides manufacturing (cases, straps etc)?
disclaimer: I'm a complete newbie when it comes to electronics, so you probably cringed just by reading that. I'm just curious about this because after trying to shop for a good watch, it seems that there's almost too many choices, and I can't help but wonder how hard is it to get to the watchmaking business.
