Kuranku concept watch is an analog time piece with a crank. Yes, you read that right, a crank. The inspiration came to Patrick when he was outside, away from an electrical outlet and probably with low battery cell phone, he thought wouldn’t it be great if there’s a crank to reload the battery. Well, since he’s a watch designer, he started to design a watch with crank but not to recharge the battery, it’s more like an accessory. The watch face features LED thin bars that act as the hours and little LED dots that act as the minutes. Those LEDs can be activated by accessing the crank although in “discrete” mode, you can activate them directly by pressing a button.
“Less is more”, this concept minimalist watch is definitely not the usual design we can often see from Tokyoflash, yet we love its minimalist and timeless design. The designer said that he always wanted to design a jewel-like clock, something elegant and functional. The main design elements are square and circular, there’s no other decoration except for the strap. Less is more watch uses 2 small LED with different brightness to indicate the hours and minutes.
Some other technical details information from the designer:
The battery takes place among the polished circle.
The LEDs are located under the rim, so it is a sunlight shielded area.
The LEDs are arranged downwards to the slope of the central panel, so that when the LEDs turn on, the dark area next to it creates a good contrast
