binwatch reed switch

One of the tricky problem with the binary watch project was to find a way to connect a watch button to the circuit. I reserved two pads on the PCB to connect this button, but without any precise plan on how to do it.

Finally, a much simpler solution is to use a reed switch instead of the button. The watch is then operated using a magnet!
