Now that you have your circuit in place, it is time to take the final steps of turning everything into a watch. The first thing we need to do is to add a watch latch to the strap of the watch. This is done on the second piece of leather that will cover the watch.
- In Figure 9.13, you can see how this can be done by cutting a 2 x 2 cm flap from the leather. Make sure that this piece of leather will fit the watch plus the latch flap.
- In order to hold the latch in place, a hole is cut at the base of the flap, and then the flap is pulled through the latch and glued in place, as seen on the left-side of Figure 9.11.
- The pin in the middle of the latch should go through the hole in the leather.
