Here in the Maker Shed there’s a lot of love for Spikenzie Labs’ Solder: Time Watch Kit. It’s easy to build and the finished product looks as well as it functions. The over-sized laser cut acrylic face and glowing red LED displays are sure to make a lasting impression on anyone who sees it on your wrist. I believe Justin from Oklahoma best sums up the kit in this enthusiastic review:

The amazingly ridiculous flux capacitor of watches.  I feel like I’m wearing a dinner plate from the future on my arm and I love it.  I’m now waiting for my stint in a supermax for neglecting to take this thing off before I stroll through airport security.

I was a soldering iron virgin before tackling this project.  I watched a YouTube video on proper technique and had this little miracle assembled and on my arm in twenty minutes.  Get this if you are a fashion forward spaceman.

Interested in being owning the “flux capacitor of watches? Now through Sunday at midnight, we’re offering 30% off the Solder: Time Watch Kit in the Maker Shed. This is the lowest price we’ve ever offered on this popular kit – so don’t miss out!


I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
