3D Printed Tourbillon Watch: 4D Printing

Last month, we checked out a 3D printed sundial that mimicked a digital display. Here’s another clever timepiece courtesy of Thingiverse member Christoph Laimer – a mechanical watch with a tourbillon.

With the exception of its fasteners – pins, screws and washers – all of the watch’s parts were 3D printed.

Like the tourbillon, the watch is more of a novelty than a practical device. It’s half a second slow per minute and needs to be rewound every 30 minutes. But what a novelty it is.

The chain is hilarious. Here’s Christoph’s time lapse assembly video:

And of course, a 26-minute video of the clock ticking away:

What a time to be alive. You can download the watch’s 3D files from Christoph’s Thingiverse page.
