I was working on a James Bond-themed 12″ GI Joe kitbash based on the first teaser of Daniel Craig from SPECTRE, wearing a simple garb reminiscent of the duds Roger Moore wore in Live and Let Die. The parts list was pretty easy overall, but there was one critical piece missing, Bond’s watch! Moore’s Bond actually wears a gadget-laden Rolex Submariner for most of the movie, but in his first scene of the film he has on something far cooler, a Pulsar P2 2900 LED watch! I have a bit of a fascination with LED watches, so I knew I needed to make one to complete my Joe Bond bash.
The trick with this model was keeping it small and in-scale looking while representing the metal link band and the shape of the face. This project really pushed the limit of fine detail capabilities from a home-grade FDM 3D printer, but with a little paint the results look the part.
