CLICK Watches: DIP Switch Timepieces

by Paul Strauss

Remember when installing computer upgrades required setting all sorts of DIP switches? I guess you still occasionally have to do that or set jumpers, but these new watches will be a constant reminder of the old DIP switch even if it does eventually go the way of the dinosaur.


These cool Click watches not only incorporate DIP or turn switches into their faces, the switches actually serve a purpose. Each one of the mechanical switches on the watch activates various watch functions and display modes.


Flipping the switches to the proper positions will display time in 12 or 24-hour modes, show the date, day of week, or even flip into a special bar graph time mode if digits aren’t geeky enough for you.


Each CLICK watch is crafted from stainless steel, and also offers a backlight (yet again activated by a dip switch). I suppose you’ll need tiny fingers or the tip of a small screwdriver to really get the best use out of the switches, although I seem to remember getting pretty good with flipping them even with my fat digits after dealing with my fair share of misconfigured SCSI drive terminations.


As an added bonus, each CLICK watch ships in an awesome package made from a circuit board. I wonder what it’s a circuit for? It seems to have spots for USB, display and serial connectors, but I’m betting even if you soldered a bunch of parts to it, you wouldn’t get anything functional. Or I could be wrong.


CLICK watches are available in a variety of face and switch color, as well as black or silver stainless metal finishes. Each comes with either a band reminiscent of an old ribbon cable or with a stainless band. The ribbon strap version goes for $149.99(USD), while the stainless band model sells for $169.99. All models of the CLICK watch are available now over at Watchismo.
