    You printing a new one for all your watches? You'd have to colour-code or keep serious inventory

    That's extremely cool! Especially if you have a 3D scanner, you can scan the case back of the watch, reverse it, and have an exact for any case back. I'm sure it would make lots of unique case backs much more reasonable to open with the right 3D tools. :)

    Took maybe 10 minutes to design it on CAD with some rough eyeball measurements with some calipers. Then took 15 minutes to print. Luckily I nailed it on the first try. I was guessing that I'd have to make 2 or 3 before it fit just right because I was eyeballing it a little.

    @Bergarn fortunately, or unfortunately, I don't have many watches :P

    And there's me just getting to grips with printing text on an inkjet! Very well done.

    Maybe on something the size of a wall clock :O But then I'd have to wear it around my neck like flav-o-flav!
