We received some comments from some noted Thermatron authorities:

Now all that is needed is a logo on the watch that says
EBOLA ( Electronic Bi-state Operational Long Arithmetic) and this will cause you to go to jail without passing Go or collecting $200.
Wow, I love this thing!…even though it uses little black plastic things to work. Have no idea what they are. (johngineer has knack squared)
Reminds me of a project I am trying with fellow ham. We picked up an old HP nixie tube freq counter at junk yard. We were going to strip out the nixie tubes to make a clock, but decided we could make it as clock as is. Want to program an Arduino thing into generating a frequency that is the time and feeding it into the counter.
For example 3:45:25 would be 34,525 Hz.
But my Italian is terrible so haven’t been able to get the Arduino to work. Just learning it. Project a bit over my head. picked up one of those online language courses on Italian. Hard, but not as hard as Turkish!
