How is this 3D-printed?

(60% Stainless Steel / 40% Bronze matrix material)
Super tiny drops of glue are deposited onto layers of stainless steel powder until the NOW Watch shape is formed. Then it goes through an infusion procedure that replaces the remaining glue with bronze, creating a solid metal object. Finally, NOW Watch is processed by hand to achieve the finish and then coated with a sealant.

(Copper Alloy 80% Cu, 15% Zn, 5% Tn)
Using the "lost wax" casting process, the shape is printed in layers of tiny wax drops. It is then placed in a container and liquid plaster is poured around it. When the plaster hardens, the wax is melted away, resulting in a mold ― a negative of NOW Watch. Molten brass is poured into the mold and hardened. Then the plaster is broken away, revealing the brass object which is cleaned and hand polished to a brilliant finish.
