    Yes, but it would take some time. I suggest using what someone else has already modeled.

    Try searching the public documents.

    Apple actually publishes accessory design guidelines and dimensional drawings for their products here: https://developer.apple.com/accessories/Accessory-Design-Guidelines.pdf

    You can find which generation of watch you're interested in and go from there. Either use this as a tool to verify a public model (many of them are probably wrong), or to model you own.

    That webpage seems to have been moved or deleted. I can’t access it.

    Hmm, not sure what's up. Here's the PDF. It probably makes the most sense to draw the side profile and sweep it around a front profile. Depending on the accuracy you need, pay close attention to the shape of the corner splines, but I would probably not actually try to add all of those points and dimension them or you'll get a wobbly spline.
