Walk No. 18 Open Source Hardware 3-D Printed Watch (2/8/2016)

The National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) February 2016 eHappenings Newsletter has just reported that "Swiss engineer Christoph Laimer has built an open-source hardware, 3-D printed watch with a tourbillon mechanism, uploading it to Thingiverse for you to print and assemble yourself." 

Thingiverse is a 3-D printing file sharing site. 

For more information, the blog Hodinkee gives an in depth review of this groundbreaking, innovative engineering design. Worth a read by  horological hobbyists and engineers.

Visit my companion blog, Wristwatchredux for an April 2014 post on watches and 3-D printing, "Will 3D Printing Usurp the Human Hands of Time?"
