This watch is based on the night vision goggles worn by Sam Fisher. There could also be a red variant for the bad guys.
I designed this BTTF alarm clock based on the Time Coordinates display from the Delorean. It automatically changes the alarm date to tomorrow on a daily basis, unless you want to push it forward a few days because of the weekend.
