"Clutch" Watch Prototype

Last couple years, I've really wanted to do some watch designs. Here's one that I was able to prototype for fun. This is inspired by a clutch plate, hence the name 'Clutch'.
Started from sketches and into Illustrator for some technical drawings.

 Transferred that into 3D and modeled up the internals of an existing watch. A little reverse engineering as I wasn't about to prototype a movement. 
Also, the exploded view of all the components.

Once I was happy I sent it to Tangent Engineering ( for rapid prototyping of the body in ABS plastic. The process of sanding, priming, painting.

The final product. It works! Now onto the next one.
James 4:13-15
13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
