Inspired by this and this  wrist watch, I decided to build yet another iteration of my bedside table alarm clock, this time using an OLED.

As a first step I made a handy breakout board for an 1.3″ 128×64 OLED. The rest is soldered together on a perfboard.
The hardware is complete and working, the firmware in an early development stage.

Via the forum.

    Hey Markus, I’m looking for a display to use to replace an old Nokia smart phone LCD I’m using in the prototype. This looks like it might do the trick. What is the display part you are using?
