UPDATE: CONNECT.STL has a better clasp.

So I recently went to the Makerbot retail store in New York while I was there for Makerfaire. I picked up a Makerbot Watch. The design was just so awesome and simple, so I had to clone it! Note this isn't as well done as the original watch since I eyeballed everything. But it works nicely, just find an old quartz watch and pull out the guts. I've attached the sketchup file if you feel the need to modify.

Open source all the things!

UPDATE: uploaded body2.stl. Print that body and faceplateap

Where can you buy the electronic watch components to make it functional?

Did you print and assemble the downloadable files?

Only there are some reverse faces that cause a fault in the case of the watch that makes the strap support too fragile to snap the links into.  And the links are too solid to snap to each other without the serious attentions of a file.
And the watch in the photo isn't created by the .STL files attached as there's a definite notch in the case in the photo (just before 6) which doesn't exist in the .STL file and a double edge to the case, which isn't there either.

Perhaps you have more up to date files that work?

the notch on the body doesnt exist in the model, my machine printed it that way for some reason O.o
I do have another version of the body I modeled that I'll upload later where the body looks sleeker and prints better. 

 The notch and the double wall to the case is a "More than 2, less than 3" problem when printing.  It prints the walls with a little bit of space in between, but not enough space that it thinks it can do infill, so it just doesn't print anything there.  If you change your settings, you can get it to print solid there.  Particularly, look at the number of shells you are using.

yea the one I redid prints just perfectly. I'll upload tonight.

Now print it with all the links already together!
