Do you have an old Apple Watch that you no longer use? There are several things you can then do with the old watch.

This first Apple Watch will no longer receive new watchOS functions. The outdated Apple Watch is also far behind the new generations of the watch, the Apple Watch Series 8 has many more functions. So there is a good chance that you no longer use your old Apple Watch. That’s why a YouTuber decided to turn the Apple Watch into a mechanical watch. And the best part: the watch actually works!

From smart to dumb watch: that’s how it went

The YouTuber NanoRobotGeek filmed how he turned his first generation Apple Watch into a mechanical watch. For example, the device still looks like an Apple Watch, but functions as a classic clockwork. To do this, all technical parts were first removed from the Apple Watch, leaving an empty housing. Even the screen has been removed (with great difficulty).

All parts for the mechanical watch are then custom-made so that the clock fits perfectly in the Apple Watch housing. Of course, the well-known Apple logo could not be missing. Also very cool: a cut-out has been made in the dial, so that you can see the inside of the clockwork. Are you curious about the watch? Watch the whole video here:
