Electricianz kick-starts creation of hybrid electro-mechanical watches


Electricianz is using crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to generate pre-orders for its latest creation: a collection of watches that use an inhouse electrical module and a mechanical movement to tell the time.

The Kickstarter launch will take place later this year, but people can register now to be alerted when it goes live.

Electricianz’s┬áHybrid Mechanical Time Display E-Circuit collection comes in a range of colours including black, gunmetal, copper, bronze and blue.


They all use a skeletonised Miyota automatic movement in conjunction with an electric module that shows the passage of time with a series of blinking LED lights on the dial (see video at the top).

The 43mm steel watches are expected to retail for $690, but there could be special offers for Kickstarter investors.
