I always say to my students that there are cheap kits to assemble and learn electronics. This is one of them! It is a digital watch with box and large display for you even to weld and assemble!

There are the Assembly instructions, Although fully in Chinese. It also has the circuit, If any questions.

The transistors that comes in the package's package equal to the BC548 although the pinout would be contrary (collector and emitter exchanged), What left a certain doubt. But I ended up checking the pins and clipping as sent the same layout. The resistors shown for display are 330 Ω came 510 Ω, but it wasn't a problem.

After a long time I finally put together and it worked!
