World’s First 3D-Printed Watch

Swiss engineer and designer Christoph Laimer created the World’s first fully functional 3D-printed watch with Tourbillon.  All parts are 3d-printed except a few screws and pins. The concept also includes a 3d-printed Mainspring even though it is irrational (plastic is not elastic - it slowly flows and deforms). In order to make it 3d-printable, a lot of engineering effort was invested. The complete movement was essentially re-invented. The resulting timepiece works surprisingly well.

The following video shows how the 3d-printed watch works and how it was designed and constructed. The 3d-Model can be downloaded from Thingiverse:

Christoph Laimer is selling a very limited amount of this timepiece, 100% made by himself. Please see the exclusive offer on his homepage.
