Topo Band is a flexible watchband system. Designed with the intent of ease of fabrication, the band was conceived of as a constructed topography similar to the methods used by architectural model makers to build site models. By starting with a smooth surface the band was digitally contoured, creating a system of extruded profiles. Contours can be substituted in and out, allowing users to customize color-ways.
