French designers build a 3D-printed metal watch

French watchmaker Unitam and 3D publication firm Stainless teamed up to build a peculiar 3D printed watch, virtually the first of its species. The squad generated the watch occurrence exercising laser sintering to melt stainless steel 316 L pulverization on a Renishaw AM2 50 printer.

The watch, which exerts French-made handwritings and a Miyota movement, isn’t completely 3D published. Nonetheless, because 3D publishing is now nearly foolproof and almost as good as injection molding, the teams will begin mass producing and selling these watches in the Unitam in Paris.

The watchmaker and the metals busines presented off their watch at the Micronora commerce show in France’s watchmaking municipal, Besancon.

It’s a adroit and peculiar use case for 3D publication and I’d love to see more. Unhappily, the present 3D reproducing systems can’t make small, complex divisions for watch gestures so we’re stuck with building large, least complex segments until information and communication technologies indeed makes off.
