    For sure. I have been wanting to experiment with them. Have done some stuff with Arduino, but wanted to emulate old games and play videos with the PI. I have an idea for a 90's tribute mini TV using a pi which will play 90's tv shows/commercials when booted. Someone already wrote a video play/shuffle script which might work.

    I setup a Rasberry Pi with all games before PS1 for under $100 using only a youtube tutorial. I'm bad at this stuff and it was easy, best of luck and enjoy!

    For those on the fence, it was a top notch event last year. The Friday evening private event was fantastic. Fewer people, more drinks, and a lot of quality time with the watchmakers. Saturday is where you meet people and see watches. Friday is where you make friends in the industry.

    Viewed the new Timex S1 introduced a few weeks ago last night. The lug design gave it a nice look, quite impressive for a Timex. Although the movement looked as if it belonged in a 26mm case.

    Nah, just a standard 20mm.

    Looked quite well done for the price point.

    Yeah, looks good. I hate rubber straps, so I'd have to find a nice leather replacement.

    Looks like a separate component needed in addition to the $1200 press...

    I always wondered how the experts got hands on properly. I knew it was something, just didn't know what.

    That press is very, very cool but, like you said, $$$$. There are less expensive versions available like this one from Esslinger:

    I do like the indicator pad and measurement though. Pretty cool stuff.

    Nothing special, but it works. There is slop in the piston. More than I would like. Still works though.
