    3D printed Rolex gaskets

    Certain Rolex parts are quite hard to find (bezel parts for example). My good friend LarryZek had a DSSD with a gen bezel but the gasket got buggered so there was no way to install it. We looked all over for replacements, contacted some parts guys, and no one could come through. So I tried 3D printing a replacement and sure enough, it worked great! Bezel is holding strong and still rotates smoothly.



    Pretty proud of this repair so I figured I’d share

    That's awesome, What did you use for specs?

      I had to draw it out on Fusion3D. Don't remember the exact specs but they're in the CAD file. Took a few tries to get it right. Printed with regular PLA in my resin printer. Next time I'd use white just to be a little more true to the actual part.

        Mega cool bro. You've unlocked a gate to new frontiers. Well done!
        We are all related in time since time is relative to us all.
