    Here is a picture of my Black Label Society heavy metal watch.
    I've been working on it for a long time but it's starting to come together. It's plastic, painted with metallic paint. I look forward to some feedback.

    Whoa! Looks great! I like the multiple layers.

    Is it printed in WSF or FUD? The paint looks great....I bet you could print it in Stainless Steel too!

    Looking good so far, why not print in alumide? I've been wanting to make a watch for a while, bought the movement and everything, and have done nothing since :p. Do you have a back story to the watch? A blog or something you can share with us about your piece?

    This was made out of White Detail. I tried stainless steel, too. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out too well. It was solid and very heavy. Plus the surface was very rough with all the layer lines. If I try stainless again I probably need to model the inside of the case so it will be hollow.

    Yes, I think I will try Aluminide next. I am curious how it will work, too. You can check out my blog here: http://medusawatches.wordpress.com.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Looks good and the wide leather is a definite plus. I've been considering this myself but diferent of course. I only design in silver so I'm guessing only the top n surrounding the glass will be silver. I gotta get back to you for some tips... Great work tho...!
