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.
