Before you tear into an antique, of course, you should know what it’s worth. But once you’re sure you’re not destroying a valuable piece of history, repurposing a family heirloom as a project enclosure can be a great way to keep it alive in yours and your children’s memories. Here, a beautiful LED watch PCB has been carefully retrofit into an equally beautiful hand-me-down mechanical pocketwatch case.
