A 3D Printed Watch Band

Well, if John is thinking about making some 3D-printed watch cases, why not tackle a band to go along with it?

It’s an interesting locking mechanism, and is definitely custom to your wrist and watch.  My biggest concern would be with comfort. Anyways, read here for more info!

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. I have had prototype cases “printed” via RedEye (http://www.redeyeondemand.com) which I used to check ergonomics on my upcoming Ka La watch. I have some .STL files if John would like to “borrow” them as I know they will produce a rudimentary case (but not one what you can easily mount a movement within) but one that you can snap a crystal into and to which you can insert springbars and a strap.

    • that would be cool, Mark. I printed one case already and bought a movement for it but I barely have any time to mess with it right now. Would love to see your STLs

  2. That is an interesting idea. Funny, my last hobby had people wanting to 3D print stuff too (custom action figures). I wonder how prevalent 3D printing will be once it’s more affordable.
