I first turned conscious of The Electricianz after I wrote about their Cable Z watch three years in the past. They’ve saved with their theme of the “uncovered” electronics. This time round, although, they’re upping the sport by placing a mechanical motion into The Electricianz Hybrid.
At a excessive stage, The Electricianz Hybrid kind of jogs my memory of an Armin Strom or perhaps a Glashütte Original, with the timekeeping offset to the fitting facet of the case opening. That’s really a very good use of the smaller motion, fairly than making an attempt to masks issues into a much bigger watch case with spacers.
To make use of the additional house, then,The Electricianz Hybrid pops in a little bit of their very own electronics. For this, it offers you a little bit of a literal mild present, with a 5-second “retrograde” flash, in addition to LED backlighting on the dial. As close to as I can inform, the electronics and the mechanical motion aren’t really speaking to one another, however nonetheless handle to reside side-by-side within the case.
It’s an fascinating look, and I’m curious concerning the backlighting getting integrated with the mechanical motion. The marketing campaign forThe Electricianz Hybrid simply launched at present, and is operating for 30 days. If you wish to leap in on the watches, the early chicken pricing for these begins at $411 throughout the number of colours. kickstarter.com / the-electricianz.com
