A watch with a story....and lines


and lines of code - it has 500+
lines!!!! ...
A watch with a story....and lines and lines of code - it has 500+ lines!!!!

A joint effort with +Jesus Paino and myself for a special request from
+Philippe Lesaine

So the story first : and who's not a sucker for a good story!

Philippe owns this watch. It's not his : gifted to him by his friend as a parting
gift. He has since passed away. He was the yachtsman I believe ,and the Seiko
Yachting Timer is a homage to him.

Well that being said ,my antennae should have gone up when Philippe sent
me this 10 page pdf document from Seiko to explain all the functions of this
watch!!
This watch has more functions than anything I have come across in a
mechanical watch. We have been toiling thru this for a while and in fact its
this body of work/code which allowed me to muster the courage to handle the
Tissot Sea-touch I did recently ,although that's primarily a digital watch.

Jesus will be doing a separate post on this very likely - the dims are different -
and he wrote the dim module. I adapted it to Ucolor. You can use the Ucolor
faces also but they are default dimmed.

WATCH FUNCTIONALITY ( You are MUCH better off reading this)


=====================================================
Accessed thru the Mode Select dial on top. This and the small dial at the
bottom basically control most of the functionality of the watch

1. TIME : TIMEZONE and DIM functions


(a) Timezone cycle thru : Tap ON the SECONDS DIAL. It will cycle thru UTC,
3 WM set times and Local Time/Date
(b) Small Dial at 6 o clock: Tap to cycle thru Dim. If you choose ALWAYS ON,
then the Ucolor Dial options open up.
(c) And you can choose a set of hands to suite the dial color :Tapping the
SEIKO logo in the ALWAYS ON mode only

OH did I forget to mention that the Time Zone dial will handle ANY
TIMEZONE?!! 30 min,45 mins - no problem! I keep hearing this here at the
community with some people lecturing why some of these countries should
conform to hourly time zones - The only guy who was open to take and adopt
my Time Zone Code was +Mark Segraves !! And Mark the gratitude for the
double tapper with delay goes to you!

2. 5,6,10 : Std min timer mode.Small dial at the bottom will align to the
duration and you simply Tap/Double tap on the dial to operate the Timer.
The hands will move counter-clockwise to denote the timer.

Timer will CHIME ONCE on completion and automatically switch to Chrono


mode , keeping with the original watch .Horrible pain to program ,but
satisfying in the end!

3.TMR : Flexible timer: allowing the Large Red Chrono hand to be activated
to set the timer. In this mode the Small Seconds dial will have an Open tap

action to allow the timer to be set.

Operation is same as above and it will chime and go auto-chrono

4. Chrono: Possibly the most straightforward function for this watch! Tap the
bottom small dial to operate ,just like the timer

5.ALM : Alarm function. The watch will chime. Jesus provided the mp3 file
graciously and loaded from Android to work on ioS.

Alarm is set thru a menu. The alarm on the original watch is clunky and really
restrictive. I did a menu here , accessed thru the 6 oclock small dial.

2 exra buttons will open at the bottom : 8,4 :: to set minutes and hours
,rotating on the small dial, just like the watch.

The 2 TOP AM/PM buttons are KEY: If you dont tap them ,alarm is NOT
SET. If set ,there will be a 24 hr time banner to show the set alarm time. You
can X out then and the watch will chime.

Jesus, Philippe and me have all tested this ,and it works! We just happen to
own the same brand watch and it has a speaker... otherwise it will only
vibrate!

6. PWR : It was a redundant mode really in the original , replaced with


Battery meter.

7. Zoom at 12 o clock . Ucolor Dim ( Thru TIME mode).

Again many many thanks to Jesus for his time and help and designing
