John had always wanted to make his own wrist watch, but never got around to doing it. Then, after inspiration from the Buro Vormkrijgers Pong Clock and David Forbes and his Nixie-tube watch, inspiration hit. He decided to make his own Pong Watch. Several months of design, building and testing later, he has his first prototype, and it looks pretty cool. Though this isn’t going to be a commercial endeavor, he has posted a pretty thorough description of the entire build process on his site, so if this watch strikes your fancy, and you’re handy with a soldering iron, you can build your own. It’s classictastic.
