Two weeks ago I wrote about 3D printed smartphone cases, this week I would like to take a look at my watch – matching smartphone and watch perhaps? Probably not, but let’s see what is available as 3D printed watch bands.
The last example is the 3D printed titanium watch band from brand Uniform Wares in collaboration with manufacturer Betatype. I love this one! The watchband is 3D printed out of titanium, it is lightweight and the woven mesh feels like it is made out of textile. The watchband also integrates a new type of clasp design that interlocks with the weave of the strap (see top image), which would not be possible to manufacture with traditional manufacturing processes.
