3D Printers Make This Stylish Watch A RealityBy: Zach Walton - August 29, 2012
Watches are amazing. For centuries, the watch has been the go-to fashion statement for men and women. It’s a stylish way to accentuate a wrist while the make and model allows you to flaunt your status. Now you can make your own stylish watch with a 3D printer.
Of course, your watch might not turn out quite as awesome as the “Doublefeature,” a watch made by Austrian designer Paul Kweton. It features two faces that tell the time in two different time zones.
What’s interesting about this watch is that most of it was made with a 3D printer. The watch’s case and interior parts were made with a 3D printer. Now, the plastic used in 3D printers might make this watch seem kind of cheap. Kweton went all out with this design, however, and the watches are fully-functioning Swiss Quarts Movements. It once again shows the versatility in design that comes from 3D printers.
Check out a few vanity shots of the new watch below. The only unfortunate part is that the watch isn’t available for purchase. You could custom order one from Kweton, but that would ruin the fun of making it yourself. That’s the beauty of 3D printers. If you see something you like, you can most likely make it yourself.
