Jintosh's Manufactured Watch Replica

This is the prototype of my manufactured watch. The hollow shell (no internal parts) is 3D designed by me and printed in Gold plated brass from Shapeways. The "dial" and "hands" are a permanent VINYL label that should resist fading and deterioration. Everything else (including the crystal) is an actual watch part of varying accuracy.

This is just for the "got to have it" group of collectors. The finished product will go up on my website for $[sign in to see URL]

Re: Jintosh's Manufactured Watch Replica


I already redid the circles around the face to be more accurate. Those changes will show up in the final version. I also need better clarity on the hands. I'm going to have new labels made with the new hands.

And yes, a lot of work went into it. And money as well, trying various parts to get a cohesive whole. Shapeways is beautiful for offering gold plated brass. But it's almost $100 just for the case from them. Then add the cost of watch back, crown, strap, crystal and label dial and I'm not making much money.

The good news is that parts are readily available so I can make new ones if someone buys the one I put on my website. I may drop the price to $120 when I'm through.
