Post X-DEPTH V.I project
Hi all,
I've started something new and weird. It is a kind of steam-punk-industrial dive watch and it's based on some sketches which i made earlier.

Here are 3D files of prototype:

Dial concept. I'm not sure for this one and will try something new with rusty/patina finish and may be more industrial.

3D printed prototype and cold casting copies. I've made sillicone molds from original parts and cast in them epoxy filled with metal powder (copper and brass).
Dark and green-blue patina is real instead painted:

I'm planing to make this in brass soon...

Love the unique creativity, if you make a pocket watch version in bronze or brass I'm in for 1!
I'd slap it on one of these:

Don't know if it's intentional but the wood grain/mokume effect (bottom right) from the 3D printer is cool too.

I freaking love that case. I like steampunk stuff. Are you planning on selling the case?
What size? Movement?

Many thanks to all! I'm waiting for the new print at the end of the week and the next step is casting with real brass. I'm really surprise and happy to hear that all of you like the project!

It wasn't intentional but I like it too. Unfortunately this effect appears only on that surface, so I think it will be better to sand it and make it smooth.

The size it 52mm diameter / 13-14mm thickness. For now It is designed to take ETA 2824 (or any similar 11 1/2") but it depends of internal cage, which can be customizable.
I forgot to present the buckle. It will be casted from brass and will be custom too:
