Made a clock with an Arduino Mega, displayboard + clock and a 2.4 inch ILI9325D driven display. It is a clock which shows the time in clear text. It refreshes the display three times a minute so it is a bit alive.
In the code SIX1 wrote for the ILI9320 and I adapted for the ILI9325 there are some pre-defined colors. The gray3 color can hardly be seen, and the idea was to have all words displayed in this gray3 color at the back and have them light up in yellow.
Here the steps from Arduino Mega to a well looking ‘Rolex’ that fits very well as a desk clock. The text is Dutch, fetched from a lookup-table so can be in any language
The main screen
It has a touchscreen, so by tipping the screen you get an option to adjust date and time.
The finished clock, to small to hang on a wall, but nice on a desk.
