Summary

If you ever wanted a really massive divers watch desk clock –
your dreams have been answered!

However, this little project isn’t for the faint hearted!

131 individual parts (or thereabouts).
30 hours printing time – approx @ 0.2mm
(0.1 recommended).
50 metres of filament @ 3mm dia.
400g weight (approx)

This project will require model making skills and lots of patients!
Ideally, all parts should be printed at 0.1 or higher if possible and some fine tuning will be required to make parts fit.

Printed on the MB Rep 2 and Ultimaker 2

Printed with Faberdashery Bling Bling Gold, Robot Silver and Classic Black PLA.

Fully detailed printing spec and assembly instructions included.

UPDATE: 210115
I’ve had a couple of requests for the face to be printable flat on the bed. You won’t get the maximum resolution in that orientation but i’ve added a new .stl to the list: Face_dial_MB flat.stl

UPDATE: 250115
I’ve spilt the ‘Back thread’ file into two individual files:
Back_thread_2_v2.stl
Back_thread_1_v2.stl
Easier to print as two individual parts – the previous file had one thread ring not on the bed – sorry about that!

UPDATE: 300115
Added v2 version of the main body. Split into 2 files:
MAIN_body_1_v2.stl
MAIN_body_2_v2.stl
Simpler geometry – some users were having slicer, printer issues.

UPDATE: 080215
Added v2 versions of the bracelet files:
Bracelet_outer_links_v2.stl
Bracelet_inner_links_v2.stl
Optimised arrangement to fit onto smaller build beds.

UPDATE:
170215
Added a new ‘Main clasp’ (without support) file.
To use with your slicer support settings

UPDATE:
040815
Replaced Bracelet_inner_links_v2 with a new file:
Bracelet_inner_links_v3 – some of the links weren’t aligned to the floor (only an issue if slicing higher than 0.2mm)

UPDATE:
081115
Added a blank face dial: Face_dial_Blank.stl. Add your own branding
Enjoy!
